hi all!
Since I feel at home with other bakers, I am wondering what everyone thinks about me baking a birthday cake for a boyfriend of just 2 months?
I love to bake, but I don’t want to seem so overeager, since we just met late March and have been dating ever since….or maybe I could make something smaller, like cookies as a present?
Any advice would be appreciated!

thanks!!

I’m laughing here at work!
Thanks for the input! I feel that if I do something from the heart, then that’s all that matters grin
He is a big soccer fan, so I was thinking of a small themed cake, just for fun, I do need practice anyways!

I will think of something and will post whatever I come up with, thanks so much for the encouragement!

Haha…as a guy, all I can say is, what’s the problem? Yes, cake! Bigger = Better! Remember that sage old expression, “the way to a man’s heart…” need I finish? Relatively speaking, we’re pigs, and not the way women usually mean it. As in, we will eat like pigs….

So, make the cake. Make the cake. Make the cake. Just make it a good one! smile

Just a quick addendum…I wouldn’t worry about scaring him off. If it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be. Now, I’m a guy who met his wife one day under somewhat unusual circumstances and came away knowing that I was going to marry her. And I did, 27 years ago. So I say, let it happen…let him know who you are!

hi All!!

Well, as of yesterday I had decided to see how the weekend turns out, his birthday is Sunday. I don’t want to go all out and later be disappointed, as it’s the holiday weekend, I’ll give him a call and test the waters- I’ll let you guys know! So much pressure!! lol
At honeycheese, thanks for the great advice and the photos, it means a lot to have support from the baking community!!
