There's some people out there that can cake like a boss. We asked YMC members to share their birthday cake creations and we weren't disappointed. Be prepared to be BLOWN away by these amazing birthday cakes that make us wish we were kids again.
Cakes are my big splurge for my kids' birthdays. I spend about a week on them from start to final execution. This Minecraft duo was for my son's 9th birthday and were meticulously hand painted--with love.

I started decorating cakes in high school at Baskin Robbins. My first "big" cake was my wedding cake and now I bake for family and friends. This year my daughter turned 15 and was going to see Cinderella with some friends. So this is the cake I made for her.

Topsy Turvy cake for my twins birthday. Pretty much represents the insanity of having twins. (Cake made by my aunt AKA Nana)

About 3 years ago, I contacted a "teenage baker" (only 17 yo) to bake a cake for my brother at the last minute. Since then, she has made almost all of my 5 children's cakes for their birthdays - always themed based. This one was for a "Frozen" themed party.

We always do a theme cake, my daughter never asks for much but she asks for her fave party each year. My wonderful friend Cassandra has made her cake every year from her very first birthday. It's become just as much for me as for her. I love seeing her face light up when she sees her special cake.

My daughter had a Tim Burton themed party for her 7th birthday. She's a big fan!

My daughter was born on Easter Sunday 2007. My son went around telling everyone the Easter Bunny brought a baby. This was the cake I made for her 8th birthday earlier this year.

I never imagined becoming a mom and when I found out I was pregnant I was shocked to say the least! My son has been my saving grace since the day he was born! My Rock. So I thought it was fitting to have a Rockstar theme for his 1st birthday!

My daughter was obsessed with Team Umizoomi. I made her this Bot cake for her 4th birthday.

My turning 3 year-old is obsessed with all things Halloween, so we had a Halloween themed birthday party for him in April!!! So much fun - we dug out all the decorations, and thanks to Pinterest, we had all kinds of fun food and game ideas for the party. He absolutely loved it!! (No store bought cakes...Mommy made with love only!!)

I'm a cake decorator so my kids always ask me for fancy cakes. Here is my daughter cake from her last birthday. She loves Owls.

My daughter's birthdays are only a month apart so, we have a joint birthday party and I get a cake made for the party but, on their actual birthday, we try to do something that they enjoy. My 4 year old is a horse fanaticm and this is what I made for her.
- Susan C.
I took the Wilton Cake Decorating courses just so I could do my boys' birthday cakes myself!
- Danica M.
I've done everything from Lightning McQueen, Mater, Mario and Angry Birds for my son. It takes a lot of love and patience to create a cake during the dead heat of summer, but the light in his eyes makes it all worthwhile!
- Amber M.
I made the cake and cupcakes, my sister made the beautiful cookies! My daughter's 2nd party was featured on Hostess With The Mostess blog. I'm so proud of how it turned out and on a budget!

My 5 year-old had a rainbow theme party last June. They had an art workshop done which is ceramic painting & drawings & had so much fun in the indoor playground where we had her party. Most of the desserts were in different colors; cupcakes, butter cookies, jellos, candies, etc.

I have a cake business but my poor kids usually just get cupcakes! This is the cake I did for my youngest daughter's 1st birthday.

Not a themed cake, but one year I made this little one with cake pops in the kids' likeness.
- Julie D.
I have made almost every one of both my daughters' cakes as well as my husband's. It is their choice for what kind of cake they would like, some being the typical Barbie to the custom "could I have a camouflage purse?" This cake was for my youngest when she turned 8, which I finished after completing a 25 mile bike race in the rain. Pretty chuffed it got finished, and that it was exactly what she asked for!

I always use local home bakers to bake cakes for my kids. In May my DD turned 3. She wanted to feed the birds at our local conservation area. We had a BBQ, cake and hit the trails to feed some birds. Her theme this year was "little birdie". Loot bags were homemade birdseed feeders.

He loves lego, so we asked our baker Bunkins Baked Goods to run with it. She went above and beyond when she brought this. He went crazy over it.

Being an owner of a bakery, my son always asks for crazy cakes. Good way to experiment.
