If friends or family greet you with a store bought, custom decorated cake, does that mean a lot to you, or does it make you think they didn't take the time to make something? Just wondering. I love store bought cake, so no insult meant for those who buy, rather then bake. Just wondering how others feel about this?

I don't mind a store bought cake at all. Growing up my mom never made my birthday cakes anyway, so it's not offensive if someone buys one. I think it's the thought that counts and I realize that a lot of people these days either don't like/know how to bake, or simply don't have the time. The fact that they wanted to get me a cake at all means something.

My partners mom does bake a cake of my choice every year for my birthday, though.

For family birthdays, we tend to get delicious cakes and pies from a local bakery.
Sometimes though I'll make something, if it's been requested.
A few years ago I had a friend staying with us for a few months. It was her birthday and she asked if I could make her something with blueberries, so I made her a tea-cake. My dad loved it so much that he asked me to make one for his birthday the next week. And the for one reason or another, I ended up making another one a few days later...
3 blueberry tea-cakes in as many weeks!

Yep, since it means they at least put in some planning to order and get it. I prefer home made, especially if I make it myself (so I can more cake batter)

If it is store bought, I actually prefer the "cookie cakes". If it is homemade I like most kinds of cake, but i LOVE pie.

I really like cake in general. I'm happy with either store bought or homemade, it's all good!

I'd rather have a small homemade card than a big store-bought cake! I'd like any gift, though

Definitely. I don't care who made it, if it's yummy, I like it!

I make my fiances cake, and for my daughters first birthday I did the cake and cupcakes...but as she gets older and wants fancier themes, we'll buy them!

I love store bought cake! It's just the frosting >_O That can get a bit sweet. Though I will bake a cake when I want to.

I hate it! Unless it is from a specialty store I don't like it. Taste is necessary.

It depends on how much time I have. I "generally" find "store bought" cakes to be overly fatty.

As do I. And too sweet.

The only kind of cake I can really enjoy is ice cream cake but since changing our diets we very rarely eat that stuff anymore. So if I still could eat it, nah, I wouldn't be upset about someone buying me a cake from the store.

Any cake is good cake! I'd feel kinda bad someone baked a whole cake for me honestly.

I'm happy with either a store bought or handmade. Actually I usually skip the cake and just have ice cream.
