Is it okay to make a birthday cake for myself? Updates:
Well, i'm not alone, i have some friends, and family close to me, I just want to try make a new model of cake, and I don't want to trouble the people around me.
So almost all think this is ok so i'll go for it! Thanks all of you for the kind opinions! :) Most Helpful Guy
Haven't you heard the news? The last law to be passed in your country was a ban on making your own birthday cake for yourself. The punishment is for the one that made it to eat it all alone and enjoy every bit of it ;)
If you allow others to eat it then the punishment is more severe - Mr. Bean will then get a chance to try to force you to sit down with him at his birthday dinner (because he's alone) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=whh7aZjNiSE

Go for it! If you want a cake and enjoy making them or just want to make it, there's nothing wrong with that.

To paraphrase Rabbi Hillel, "If I am not for myself, who should be?"
not weird, this is one of those moments where you can have your cake and eat it too :)
You're totally fine compared to the people that buy valentines flowers for themselves
Of course not! Everyone loves cake. If you enjoy baking a cake bake a cake! In our family you often buy the cake yourself anyway.
Nah it ain't weird. Just do you. And if there's any cake left over. I'll gladly take some 😜 haha
Not at all... have at it! I am sure friends and family will help by diggin in!
Do it. Screw people who think it's weird!
Of course, it's like rewarding yourself.
I made a birthday cake for myself and I didn't think it was weird
Cakes are delicious. Why should it be weird? Enjoy it!
Do it! And please share! We like cake too! And happy birthday!
Not at all. I assume you're having someone over. And that way you're sure you'll get the kind of cake you like.

Of course not. Go for it, make a nice cake, it's good practice anyway. Invite some friends and family over if you wish. And Happy Birthday in advance :)
Absolutely! I would do it!
Well, I'm a cake decorator so I do it, but if you're doing it because you're alone on your birthday and no one else is going to do it, then you should. It's not weird, maybe a little sad, but not weird.
No it's not weird, have fun! I know that I would love to do that! On any occasion :)
this way, you won't have to share
OF COURSE, GIRL! IT'S CAKE!
It's fine. As a baker it is good to try it out first on yourself and see how the recipe works before trying it out in the public.
Yea absolutely! Go for it
Of course, it's okay! I bet it's fun, if you love baking.
Are you seriously asking this? How oppressed are you?
It's ok if you want to make yourself a present
It's like making a cake to eat in everyday life
no its no weird and Happy Birthday
I always make my own birthday cake because I tend to want very particular flavours
Of course it is! That way you get exactly what you want.
Yes it' s perfectly ok. It's your birthday, you have the right to treat yourself :)
Not at all, you know what you like and besides it was made with birthday love
