What's your tradition for your own birthday cake?
My husband and I both love to cook and bake, so we have started using our birthdays as an excuse to make whatever cake we like, picking our flavors, shapes, decorations, etc. We go all out on these: 15 eggs? Sure! A whole pound of butter? It's only once a year!
When I mention this to people, they are usually shocked that I make my own cake. How about you? Do you like to plan and make your own over-the-top creation or have someone make it for you? Do you make the same cake every year or never repeat the same thing twice?
