I was growing up, we usually had a cake in the house.

are well worth it.
come in all shapes and sizes. Simple cakes baked and
iced (or not) in a square cake pan are great for "every

of like special occasion cakes - they take a little
more time to prepare. Of course layer cakes are traditional
birthday party fare. But there's no reason you can't
invent a special occasion either!
your family - bake a cake.
