My self-esteem is definitely not exclusively tied to compliments I receive on my birthday cakes…

  1. My grandma was a baker. My dad was a baker. My mom loves to bake. I love to bake. Difference is I canโ€™t bake for shit because Iโ€™m awful at it. ๐Ÿ™

  2. Ngl, it is cool when you can makes stuff for people’s birthdays. That’s a very special kind of happiness! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I did graphic design semi-professionally for a while and made no secret about it. I’ve done book covers, movie posters, and commissioned pieces. One year at a reunion, my wife’s family went around talking about and celebrating everyone in the extended family who does graphic art… except me. Because they don’t give a shit about me or my interests. Definitely felt like a Faramir moment.

  4. Hello fellow baker, dough I work mostly in breads and not cakes which means almost everyday is my chance to *prove* my quality.

  5. When you bake a cake but you arenโ€™t invited to the party..

  6. As the designated birthday cake maker in my family, I can confirm that this is a very special and important position that should be taken very seriously. Also it makes me VERY ANGRY when someone else tries to make a birthday cake. Like just no, MOTHER.

  7. haha yeah, I spent my quarantine learning to cook and now thanksgiving is coming, finally time for the exam

  8. I like to bake birthday desserts for people who want them, but on person only wanted a really shitty cool whip based dessert. It made her happy but killed my soul every time.

  9. I LOVE to volunteer my baking. I’ve done birthday cakes and wedding cakes and fancy cookies. But when someone is like “hey can you make (insert specific, detailed pinterest cake) for so-and-so’s birthday? Gee thanks!” No Ma’am, I do not want to put two days of effort into a confection celebrating the day your crotch goblin came into the world.

  10. I absolutely love being the designated baker. Especially when the birthday person says no, don’t make a fuss but then my mom asks me to bake something overnight, last minute anyway.

  11. On the real? I like Faramir more than Boromir. Always living in the shadow of the successes of his brother, he just wanted to make his father proud of him.

  12. I laughed way too fucking hard at this.

    I can’t even fucking bake.

  13. We are currently re-watching the Lord of the Rings movies in my family. There are many, many fine things about these films and I love them. But I’m just saying, man, Peter Jackson is going to hell for what he did to Faramir.

  14. Plus the holidays! There are only going to be three people at my thanksgiving and I have been asked to make two pies & dinner rolls. I feel this.

  15. It doesnโ€™t have to be a birthday. Any holiday or get together – I am bringing fresh bread and a pie and YES you will have a slice!

  16. Faramir was pretty good at getting cooked up, though. Just like his father

  17. I really like too cool and bake stuff even though Iโ€™m not that great, I think last year I made a cake that took me 3 days

  18. my family when I make shortbread: “lembas bread, oh look! *more* lembas bread”

  19. I remember my friend being so confused when I said I was gonna bake my own birthday cake lol

  20. Boromir would’ve cooked the birthday dinner AND bake the cake.

  21. Hey man. Your birthday cakes are fucking awesome and anyone who celebrates a birthday without one of yours is missing out. Keep on fighting the good fight, you’re making the world a with every cake, even if that sounds silly, from a moral and economic perspective, it’s true.

    Hats you and your craft

  22. For me it’s

    “When you’re the only artist in your family and literally any event comes up” ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜‚
