Vanilla or chocolate? When it comes to wee one's birthday cakes, the possibilities are endless. Many mothers prefer to bake their own enlisting tiny, helping hands and spoon-licking tongues while other mommies prefer to pick up a bakery's special concoction that is sure to please the kids — big and small. When a tot requests an ice-cream dessert, mum may be pressed to call Ben and Jerry's or Baskin Robbins just for sake of ease. And then there's me — the mom that still adores good old sheet cake from the supermarket — confection sugar and all. When she leaves it in someone else's hands, mama just better pray they spell the name right!

What kind of cake mom are you?
