Show me a cake that you've made for YOUR birthday.

My birthday is coming up in a few weeks, and I've been 'debating' about whether I want to make a cake for myself. The practice would be good, and I can really choose a design that *I* will really like. If you've made a cake for your own birthday, I'd love to see it for inspiration icon_smile.gif

The last time I had a decorated birthday cake was 4 years ago. And this was the one I did. It was something I Had been wanting to do for awhile and was a GREAT excuse to try it, and if it didn't turn out, I wasn't going to be stressing about it.

Otherwise I usually just do a 6 or 8" round and put some icing on it, no decorations.

This is a cake I did for myself, my sister and brother in law. Our birthdays are within a week of eachother. I went all out because I wanted to try something new and have something to put in my portfolio.

Funny, my birthday is today and I've been wondering the same thing! "What do CC people make on his/her birthday?" I usually ask for an ice cream cake, but this year I wanted to try swags. I will post a picture when it's done.

This cake has been fun, no stress!

The last thing I want on MY birthday is cake lol... much less one I have to make myself. I'd much prefer a nice creme brulee or some decadent homemade ice cream (again, that someone ELSE made, for once lol).

<---wonders if anyone uses REAL ingredients anymore--sugar fruit nuts, cream, butter etc--instead of flavoring chemical cream from a bucket with pudding & jello and calling it "mousse"

Don't have any pics (since my b-day hasn't come this year yet), and every year before this one my husband (of almost 8 years) would purchase me one of those character cakes from like Walmart or the grocery store (don't kill him just yet, it was an inside joke between us). Last year, when I started making more cakes for other people, he just up and says I didn't get you a cake this year because anything I got you wouldn't be as good as the cake you would make yourself!! I was flattered, but at the same time I was looking forward to not making a cake last year. I didn't have a cake for my b-day last year, but I have big plans for Mother's Day and my b-day cake this year.

I say take this as an opportunity to do the most extreme thing you have wanted to try, and if you don't get it right, it will be fine and you have at least had a great learning experience. Don't forget to post pics after it's done!!! I know it will be great, whatever you decide to do!!!

my very first cake I ever made.. my very first time with MMF, gel colors... long before I found this delightful website. Made it myself. My husband thought it was sad that I made my own, but I loved it!!

I don't normally do anything for my birthday (I'm not afraid of age ... I just don't think birthdays are any big deal ... been that way since my early 20's), but on my 50th, I made a doozie!! I made it for dessert for one of my fraternity caterings. Told them, "This is an old lady's dream .... to spend her 50th birthday with 160 good looking college guys!!" icon_lol.gif

I just threw anything and everything on this cake! I wanted it to be busy, on the edge of gaudy, with a mix of BC and fondant work. I didn't have time to go buy the Mardi Gras feathers that I wanted to put on it! icon_cry.gif

I usually get a store bought cheesecake, but this past year was my big 4-0 so I made this cake. It gave me all kinds of problems, so I was happy it was just for me!
