We've never known a person who isn't happy to see cake! (Well, except those who might have an allergy or those who prefer pie.) Baking is a great way to take some "me time" or bond with a child or family member. And, at the end of the process you'll have a beautiful treat to share with someone who might need a little cheering up! There are about a thousand reasons to bake a cake... forget the birthday and bake a cake for a made up holiday like "You're Awesome Day!"
