I've never had a cake on my birthday. Maybe this year I will bake my own.

I love making my own cake and usually pick out a new recipe months ahead of time. This year it's going to be cheesecake stuffed dark chocolate!! Mmmmmm...can't wait for the pre-birthday trial run!!

My mom usually makes me a birthday pie, because I love love LOVE pie. I usually make everyone else's birthday cake though.

Awwww :( Even the dishwasher person should have some birthday cake!-- I'll share one of my cupcakes with ya! :) ________________________________________ This subject has me reminiscing. We'd get a card and whatever kind of cake we wanted Mom to bake for our birthday. Birthdays were never a big deal in our house (now that's kind of sad!). But, I usually enjoy celebrating other peoples'.

For some reason.....I always end up with the dishes. The cake in the story looks bomb!

I often make my own cake and never even imagined it was sad, until my mom told me that it sounded sad.

Ya know, I should do this! I :love: me. I'll probably make cupcakes so that I can freeze away in portion sizes because if I don't I will surrrre be in T-R-O-U-B-L-E! :speedy:

I do think I make fabulous cakes and cookies, but I've only made mine twice, once because I wasn't sure if anyone had time and I didn't want to be a burden (my roommate was disappointed, she liked to bake, too), and the other was when I lived with my boyfriend and a male roommate - to their credit, they went on about my ice cream pound cake like it was made of gold.

I prefer to make myself a batch of cupcakes before and after my birthday. My mom makes my cake for me still

I love baking and I bake my own birthday cake since I've moved away from home. I don't eat it alone though, that would be sad.

Not a big cake fan. I would make my own, but obviously I'd like someone else to do it, Lol. But I can celebrate without cake too. As long as there is lots of wine or champagne! haha

I like my cakes and baking is one of my favorite things, so I don't mind making them. I don't think it's sad.

I usually make cupcakes for myself, and my boyfriend gets a full cake. I did buy myself a birthday cake for my 21st, as I think before then, the last I'd been allowed to have my own was when I was 5.

I don't usually have a cake for my birthday anymore, but when I was growing up, my dad either baked one or we had a family friend of ours who runs a bakery make it. I've baked birthday cakes for other people though. I baked a cake for my dad once and he really liked it. I also baked a birthday cake for my mom one the time, she was on a diet so I found a recipe for a low calorie cake that she could actually eat.

i really hate to make a big deal about things - so yes i have made one for myself in the past but i'm not really one to even celebrate anymore - so it's been a while :) today's actually my birthday - and i'm DEFINITELY not having a cake.

It's not sad, my baking kicks ass, especially my layered vanilla cakes w/ ganace. I know exactly what goes in it, and I'm not worried about nasty Crisco frosting.

I've baked cakes for my son's birthday. But, I've never baked one for my own.

it just makes me sad because it makes me think that there is nobody there to bake them a cake. but, i do agree with bluepuppy, if you make a kick@ss cake, why not make your own? it just reminds me of a friend's roommate. she bought/made her own cake every year because she didn't have any friends. that made me sad. but then i found out she was a backstabbing biotch, so i stopped feeling bad for her.

No. I've always made cakes for others. When it's my day, I get presented with a cake.

i've made cakes for friends, but my mom still makes all of us a cake for our birthday (even if it's on an 'observed' date at this point). what cake is that in the photo though; looks delicious!

I don't think it's sad, if you make a kick ass cake why not! I would rather have ice cream, so I always treat myself to something completely indulgent at Cold Stone.
