Birthday cake tradition trumps New Year's resolution.

At least it should.

When it comes time to celebrate with birthday cake, where do you get your cake?

Do you bake it or buy it?

We recently celebrated my son's 5th birthday.  About 20 kids + adults = no way we made the cake.  We bought it.

Occasionally, for much smaller celebrations we may make a treat.  Even then, it's always smaller than a full-size cake.

At large birthday parties there are enough things to plan for.  We are more than happy to make baking a cake not one of them at my house.  Eating the cake is no hassle whatsoever!
