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 worms...so I tried to compromise on his cake.

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

    I think it's awesome to make your own cake if you can make it taste and look good.... which I cannot do...lol... So, I always have mine made by a bakery :P

    We buy cakes. That's the way my mom always did it as well.

    Store bought is gross. I either make my own or order special made from a bakery.

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

    I don't like cake, I only like VERY specific kinds, with real ingredients, not crap. Even as a kid, I found store-bought cakes nasty. I like ice cream cakes, with both layers made of ice cream and crumbled chocolate wafers in between. I know - I'm picky! So wr always made mine at home. I prefer it that way. Always have. I also prefer homemade Halloween costumes.

    I often make them. But I have a good friend who has a home based cake business. She'll do my kids cakes this year.
