    Default Birthday cake on day of birthday AND on party day?

    So this Friday DS1 turns 7. He is having two parties on Saturday, one is a party with his school friends and he is having a Minecraft cake ($70) and that afternoon the family is coming over to celebrate with another cake, a cheesecake. So on Saturday he is already going to blow out two sets of candles!

    So on Friday, his actual birthday, shouldn't he be blowing out candles as well? Should I buy a cheap Woolies or Coles mud cake for Friday?

    What do you do?

    We do a cake at the party, which is always on a weekend, then a cake on her actual birthday (just immediate family). We also take cupcakes to daycare so they can make a fuss of her there too! I think its sweet and yes, I think they should be blowing out candles on their actual birthday too

    I do both. For DD I usually do an ice cream cake for birthday and fancy cake for party. For DS's first birthday last year I did banana cupcakes and chucked a candle in one.

    I do the icecream cake/real cake thing too. That way they are not "caked out" if that is a thing lol. And as pp says, it keeps forever in the freezer

    Two cakes here. The one on their birthday is usually something quick and easy eg buttercake with a few smarties on the top arranged to form their age. More elaborate cake for the party.

    I do love pp's suggestion of an icecream cake.

    Default Birthday cake on day of birthday AND on party day?

    We do 2, a cool one for the party and Nanas (my mums) special lopsided cake for the actual birthday ( her stove has a tilt so for the last 10 years all her cakes slant - it's now a huge family joke and she and the kids love it - DH and dad always pull out their levels to check how off centre it is! )

    We are having a mummy made cake on her main party that will also be eaten on her birthday the next day. We have got ice cream cake ordered for her other party. Depending on how well (bahahahahahahahaha) the mummy made cake turns out it may be that she gets a giant cookie for her main party and the cake stays home for her birthday lolol
