    • I remember when my daughter was in elementary school I always baked cupcakes (used a mix) to take to her classroom to celebrate her b-day. These days the norm is to bring a fancy and store bought cake or cupcakes to school. Nothing wrong with it, just asking. Sure, I buy a decorated cake because I’m not skilled at it for home parties. I just preferred to bring homemade cupcakes to school.

    • I’d buy cupcakes because I know that I don’t want my child eating homemade cupcakes from a home I don’t know is clean, ect. Who knows if they licked the spoon or something while cooking them....

    • I must agree with Mz, but I do remember as a kid myself, the moms always made cakes and cupcakes for b-days and we had bake sales all the time and I am still here..lol.  As for when our son was a little guy, usually I would opt for bringing in the paper products and decorations and the teacher would order cupcakes from a local bakery, of course, me paying for it.

    • I had three kids and 200 cows to look after.  I was lucky if I remembered to buy a bag of Snickers to send to school for birthday treats.  I don’t know, maybe my kids would tell you differently.  I might have stayed up in a fog of exhaustion frosting cupcakes, I just don’t remember.

      I won’t eat store bought cupcakes because they are full of food chemicals I am allergic to.  And I’m not crazy about eating anyone’s “homemade” either because almost nobody bakes from scratch anymore.   I don’t care for cake mixes.

      As for licking the spoon, well a 350 degree oven kills any pathogens.  I’d rather have the mom next door licking the spoon than some stoner at walmart even touching my food!

    • I did-up until the 6th grade.  Today’s parents go way overboard when it comes to b-day IMHO.  Our DD-boys are 10 days apart, she feels the need to outdo all the other parties.

      It’s ridiculous!  one year-at the park, fed everyone lunch, rented a popcorn machine, a bouncy, bought them all a train ride and if all that and cake weren’t enough-a magician and goody bag!  really? and 3 hours long.

      too much.
