My daughter had her 5th birthday party this weekend. My ex-husband thinks that I went overboard and that me making this cake was just as bad as the parents that spend thousands of dollars on a birthday party (see picture below). It is my family tradition to have a custom made birthday cake on a kids birthday. Do you think I went overboard. My daughter loves princesses and it was a bowling party so it seems appropriate to me. What do you think?

What I think is....is that EX- Mr. Bytemi is a jackass!! MY question is...why do you even let his opinions concern you? You KNOW he's an idiot!! He's an EX for a reason!! LOL I think the cake turned out GREAT! Happy birthday to the "Ten Pin Princess" !!! LOL

The Ten Pin Princess got her first bowling sponsor this weekend. Dextor gave her a pair of bowling shoes. She was so excited. No strings attached she just has to wear them and bowl. I am so proud of my little bowler.

I know, I was shocked. I don't even have Dexters. But my bowling ball is more expensive than hers so we are even.

i think there are bigger problems in this world then arguing about a cake. i think the cake is beautiful and if i could afford a nice cake i'd do it as well. these are the little things she will remember. she won't even remember toys as much as the special cake made especially for her. i say it's worth it

That is the thing, the cake didn't cost us anything other than, the cake mix, powdered sugar, milk and dye, thats it. I have all the pans and tips and stuff, they were hand me downs from my grandmother. The cake was cheaper than going to Giant and buying one.

Your ex-husbands probably jealous because he's too lazy to do anything special for your daughters birthday. (Just an assumption...). Seriously. If its your tradition, you bake her a cake! Even if its not, you bake her a cake anyway! It means alot to people to have a hand made object from someone you love / that loves you. Your ex-husband probably feels like your little girl with love you more then him. Which is his problem, not yours. Let him say what he wants, but at the end of the day, tell him to put his own effort into things and stop complaining about yours. Good luck, and beautiful cake by the way :)

I don't know what his problem is, I just want my daughter to feel special on her birthday and it is not everyone that gets a special cake homemade with love.

GREAT comment! And yes, knowing Bytemi's situation, you are correct in your assumption! He's an IDIOT! I love that she makes these special cakes for her daughter. Heck, she offered to make MY daughter's cake for her birthday last year (well..Dec07) and I got up-to-the-minute camera phone pictures and texts to show the progress...and I really loved how much fun she was having with doing the cake. It was made from love and that showed through more than whatever it may have cost her to make it. That's all that mattered to us!

It is a wonderful cake and you didn't go overboard at all! I think a custom cake made just for her on her birthday is a great way to let her know how special she is to you!
