I would do a birthday cake with a theme that he likes, unless he's too young to have a favorite character or toy, rather than a Christmas theme. Most people I've known who were born on a holiday really wished for cakes that were about their day instead of the holiday.

I completely agree.

My hubby is a christmas baby and every year I make him a cake with a tool set on it (he's a handyman) in chocolate or something that he can get a kick out of -- and I make it a 6 x 3 cake which is too small to share but too big to eat in one sitting (for him anyway) so it's the perfect size. icon_biggrin.gif

I agree, Its my mom's birthday on the 23rd and she used to tell me as a kid her birthday and Christmas were always combined and she wished it wasn't. so now we try to make a production of it. like her own birthday cake and stuff she likes on it.

My birthday is also on Dec. 25th. My family always has my gifts wrapped seperately (b-day paper) and a cake with something that I enjoy. It has worked well for us. I wish you on the best in making the perfect cake.

Agree- my husband's birthday is the 25th, go with a birthday theme cake. Nothing worse than getting one present wrapped in half Christmas and half birthday paper... icon_smile.gif As a little one, he had a 1/2 birthday party on June 25th.

My dad's bday was Christmas day and he said he never ever got a birthday present...everything was always a christmas present...nothing EVER said Happy Birthday on it...so when we kids got older we always made sure that he got presents specifically for his birthday!!! One year we even got up in the middle of the night and took down all the christmas decorations and put up birthday decorations...the look was priceless.

Don't combine christmas/bday...just make it a bday cake as someone upstream said..something he likes or is interested in and make sure it says Happy Birthday!!! Birthdays are our own "special" day (although I share mine with Sadaam Hussein icon_eek.gif )

Wish I had thought of the 1/2 birthday in June, what a great idea!!

I would agree with everyone if MY birthday was on Dec. 25-I'd want a birthday celebration, not just holiday.

However, for the two cakes I was asked to make this year for separate birthday folks (for Dec. 25), they both asked for Christmas tree cakes.But bear in mind that the folks asking are NOT the birthday folks, so maybe the recipients would prefer something else.

I would do something he likes but if he's older (18+) and they want a christmas theme you could always do a santa passed out on his back with unwrapped gifts and empty alcohol bottles around him with this tag something along the lines of John Smith: Giving the gift of Xmas, twice (well not quite that but u know what I mean)
