A while ago I was tagged by the lovely Julie at Ice Maiden Cakes, who posed the question to fellow cake makers “Who makes your birthday cake?”

Baking has long been a tradition in our family with my Mum, Grandma and Great Grandma all being fabulous bakers and that is certainly where I got my love of baking from. When I was little my Mum used to make me wonderful birthday cakes. I remember having a birthday cake in the shape of ballet shoes, a hedgehog cake and a lovely little house that looked like a toadstool.

I remember before my last birthday people on Twitter were asking if I was going to make my own cake and even had a few people offering to make me one (if I made them one in return!). In fact, Cumbers, I’m still waiting for my birthday cake 😉

Luckily, I don’t like a lot of fuss so my Grandma usually just bakes me a nice sponge cake. Last year I requested a coffee cake, which was absolutely delicious. To be honest, I spend so long making and decorating cakes for other people, I’m not that fussed about cake any more!

I think most of the bakers have been tagged as I was a bit slow off the mark to join in! But I am going to tag a few people so I apologise if you’ve already done this. So who bakes your birthday cake?
