It’s the only time I eat cake & so yeh, once a year is cake time.
My wife had made a stunning one for my 50th & I buried my face into it with glee.

I can take cake anytime. I get pissed when people mention my birthday because, at my age, I’d just as soon forget!

I would rather have a fresh baked apple or berry pie a la mode. Cake is overrated.

Just to clear up any confusion that may arise from my answer.
My wife had a professional make my cake as she would have burnt the house down.
Cheers!

I always want cake. My daughter, however, prefers birthday pies.

I’ve very often not really wanted cake on my birthday, since my 20’s or so.

One of the most memorable alternatives was bacon-wrapped scallops. Actually, since then, a couple of times I’ve gone to a restaurant and ordered really nice scallop dishes on my birthday.

I have never liked cake. Can’t eat it.

I would never mind cake on my birthday! Except if it has nuts in it. I would eat one or 2 pieces and give the rest away.

Pecan pie and mashed potatoes.

I don’t especially like cake but if someone else makes it, I’ll eat it .I prefer pie and icecream.

I remember, as a kid having banana cream pie with graham cracker crust. Yum.

My Mom was an artist, and our cakes were a work of art!
I haven’t had a cake on my birthday since I left home.

A chocolate chocolate cupcake will do. I’ll gladly split it.

I don’t want anything, for my birthday. Haven’t for, at least two decades. I survived another rotation of the Earth, around the Sun. That’s all it proves…

I am more of a pie kind of gal, but if I was going to have cake, I would prefer that it was lemon. I’m not particularly fond of chocolate cake.

josie's avatar

Never.
Cake is good. Birthdays are good.

I would be tickled pink to get anything on my birthday.
