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

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 I tried to compromise on his cake.

    Ah, our bakery can match the design of the plates or napkins used for the theme.  Personal enough for me...

    I've recently turned vegan and planned on making my sons birthday cake for Tue. Can I have that recipe?

    Quoting LaughingTattoo:

     Best cake I ever made was vegan chocolate. This post actually made me think of it and crave it....Im making it tomm.

    But yeah....I never buy store bought cakes

    Quoting Groove:

    We're a vegan family so I have no option but to make our cakes at home.

    My cakes always taste yummy but I suck at decorating them so they don't look that good. Sometimes I make them, sometimes I buy them. There's a supermarket near me that has an awesome bakery, so I usually buy from there.
