Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

I don't judge those who don't do this...but I really think it's more personal to do this.

Posted by   + Show Post

So my SD's 10th birthday is coming up and all she can talk about is the type of cake she wants. I always make the cake myself and I make it personal for my family members. They tell me general shape or style of cake they want, what flavor cake and frosting and I go from there.

I always find store bought cakes...almost distasteful and impersonal.

So I just ordered a monkey shaped cake pan for SD's birthday (she wants a jungle themed party) and I was wondering if any other moms out there still make their kids' birthday cakes. I don't know anyone my age (late 20's) who does, they all buy store bought.

Here are a few cakes from the last year. My DH doesn't like frosting but LOVES gummy worms...so I tried to compromise on his cake.

Your cakes are cute. I make my families too. People are always saying I should sell my cakes. But I like just doing it for fun. This is one I made for DDs 2nd birthday.

Sometimes I do sometimes I order one from the bakery. It all depends on what's going on around the time of said child's birthday

This. Though some years I'd rather just order it lol.

Quoting momtolittleg:

I make DD's cakes, but then I do cakes/cupcakesas a hobby/side business, so I don't have the option, lol.
