Until I read this thread I'd never even thought it possible that birthday cake had a distinct flavour, or that it would sold in a bottle! What a strange world we live in - birthday cakes in my house are whatever the birthdayee wants - my eldest turned 13 a week ago and wanted chocolate mousse. I was like great, cool I'll make a beautiful entremet and he goes "dad no that would suck I just wanted chocolate mousse in a bowl" ... Ouch to my ego 🤣
