Bake sales and bday parties: Home baked or store bought?

When you're asked to contribute some baked goods for a bake sale, do you bake or buy something from the store?

What about for your kids' birthday parties - do you bake or buy?

I was at a cookie swap over the holidays and brought bakery cookies because I didn't have time to bake.  Most of the other moms baked.  I kind of felt bad that I didn't bake even though I brought some tasty cookies!

What do you usually do - bake or buy?

A bake sale I would probably bake, at my childrens birthday party I always make the cakes that way I can make the icing out of cocoa or confectionary sugar instead of buying the store bought ones which are really not healthy.

I probably wouldn't participate in the bake sale, because my baking would not be exemplary enough, LOL. Anything else, store bought.

My kids' schools never did bake sales.

For birthday parties, I almost always baked everything myself.

For my kids Birtheday celebrations I suck at baking cakes so I always do a store bought one,one year my Mom baked a cake for my son and one year she baked one for my daughter,last yr my son got a Nascar Cake from the store,this year my daughter wants a store bought cake.

I've done both.  really just depends on how much time I have before the sale is

 I bake. With the exception of birthday parties where I will get someone more talented at decorating than me for the cake, I usually bake most things.

I bought a bday cake the last time we had a party. I enjoy baking our own, though. Haven't done a bake sale yet, but I would probably make my own. As far as that goes, I think any contribution you can make is wonderful.
