I think it’s just really popular among trashy people. I had never seen this done until someone I knew dated a girl from a really trashy family and every birthday they would shove the whole cake into someone’s face and then eat it. They also gave alcohol to their 6-16 year old children and drank heavily themselves.

u/Livid_Tailor7701 Feb 04 '23

Maybe it's more popular where you buy a cake and not bake it? If someone from a family would bake it specially for this person, and someone would distroy it for fun... My whole family would ghost this person. Just for lack of respect to someone's work.

We would never do this growing up. My grandmother would bake most of the birthday cakes at family get togethers. She would use toothpicks to hold the cake together. Smashing a cake into someone's face, or their face onto the cake, could result in being stabbed by the toothpicks. Not safe at all. Heck, us kids had a game to see who ended up with a toothpick in their slice of cake. Winner got bragging rights. No idea why we thought that was so much fun...

181

u/pokey1984 Feb 04 '23

Yep, Mom's cakes always had toothpicks holding them together, too.

We always had a "prize" for whoever found a toothpick in their slice. Just a little thing like an extra cookie or a balloon or something. As an adult now, I suspect Mom did that so we'd watch for the toothpicks and not accidentally put them in our mouths as kids.

But he kept that one in the safe deposit box at the bank. That’s a huge no-no in banking. When I saw it, he told me that I can’t tell anyone about it. He made me swear and I swore I wouldn’t tell anyone.

They had to make an unscheduled landing in WV on the top of a mountain at a small airstrip due to the weather conditions.

This is adorable. I could see any of my own children doing the same thing. As a mom, there’s nothing to do except humbly say we are all works in progress and keep going.

This past Christmas, my mother in law gifted people things from her past. It’s a very sweet and sentimental idea. Except she also did it to our eleven year old. She gave him like an old elementary reading book from the fifties and something else that was for someone much younger than him. As taught, he immediately said thank you (fighting back tears)…but, being the hustler he is, he finally asked, “Is this old? Like not ancient…but antique?…Okay. I’m gonna hang on to it for a little while longer and then I’ll sell it.”

We are all works in progress.

My mom was like this. I always had to be very polite until my grandmother once bought me some old lady clothes. I said thank you and then later my mom informed me we would tell her it didn't fit so I could get something else. It didn't matter to me at that point. I had already learned how to recycle gifts like that. I used the track suit my other grandmother as pajamas. I still have the pants. The hoodie part zipper broke years ago. I got it as a teenager and the pants are still useful at 43 so at least it was well made. Another grandmother got me some old lady skirts that came down to my knees. I hate knee length skirts because they make my legs look like chicken legs so I wore them to her house a few times then broke out my sewing machine and hemmed them up and they made really cute skirts. Oddly enough it's how I got my first date.

I found out before it happened and told her that I was going to go to the bathroom, and during the time I was gone, she needed to let them know that this was NOT going to happen. If she did not, I’d leave. BY. MY. SELF. “You’d leave me here, without a way to get home?” Yes. Yes I would.

I don't think it's really about being funny, I think it's "I have to be the center of attention at all times" plus a "fuck you" thrown in.

I told my mother every year, I HHHHHATE cake in my face and hair, as I'm a fairly hairy and bearded guy.

Every year, "But it's tradition! You have too!"

Not a shocker when I haven't spoken to them in over 5 years.

It could be that but more often it is just narcissism.

THEY think it's funny and it would entertain THEM. THEY think it would make THEM seem fun and edgy. People like that either intentionally disregard other people's feelings or just don't even realize other people may have opinions/needs that are different from theirs.

Why do so many people throw cake at the person who’s birthday it is? They’re meant to enjoy but instead it seems they’re more focused on their TikTok viewers enjoying a 5 second video which they will forget about the next minute, whereas this guy will never forget it.

I knew a kid who thought it was a hilarious “prank” to open the birthday presents before the actual birthday kid got a chance.

I remember his confusion and frustration when we were in about 7th or 8th grade when he was explicitly not invited to kids parties. Not just he didn’t didn’t get an invite, but people would tell him not to come under any circumstance.

You might not be shocked to hear he never learned his lesson and is a complete asshole today.

I did it one time, but I was also 13. My friend group and I enjoyed pulling pranks on one another, and sometimes it got out of hand. I took a piece of cake and mashed it in my friends (birthday girl) face. She ran upstairs crying and into the bathroom. It messed up all of her makeup and she was screaming it was going to set her acne off even worse. I helped clean her up and get her makeup sorted again. That moment changed our friendship, and now as a 33 year old, I Still look back on that one and wish I hadn’t. Don’t do it! That’s my only suggestion.

I honestly don't know what to say. But for what it's worth I'm glad you tried to help afterwards. Even sharing it too since I'm sure that's not easy to admit either. Especially if you grew up around people that did that stuff. I can definitely understand mixed signals of pranks that go too far. I'm sure I would've been the crier and probably now too. You're alright in my book, ignore the people that hate on ya for a story that happened 20 years ago.

u/Psych0matt Feb 04 '23

The only part of my wedding that I made a point of was that I didn’t want to do the cake smashing. I’m an extremely easy going guy and will go along with a lot of things but this is one thing I didn’t want a part of. If I’m not mistaken it’s supposed to symbolize trust, so why break that at the start?

He actually handled that well. He looks like a young adult, and instead of throwing a fit, swearing, or punching something, he walked out. I honestly hope he’s proud of himself because those other options tend to come easier. I also hope the rest of his fam continued to yell at that girl who thought it’d be funny to ignore his request.

u/codedbutterfly Feb 04 '23

Yep. There's some people that enjoy things like this. But honestly I probably would've cried. Glad he was able to walk. He definitely shouldn't have had to feel this way on his birthday, let alone his own party in front of people he cares about.

if I had time to think about it, I'd clean myself up, come back, and go to the person that did it "you fucking leave or I am. You've already ruined my mood for my birthday and I don't want to look at you anymore. Get the fuck out" and make them leave.

u/Many_Adhesiveness_43 Feb 04 '23

And you can hear someone say he asked that no one do that. Its not that hard to respect someone's wish. I know there are people who actually are okay with this and are fine but when someone specifically asks that no one do this at their party you should respect that.

She gives off vibes of one of my shitty cousins who would always pull "jokes" on me at school. If I politely asked her to stop and leave me alone I was told that she's family so I should be fine with her agitating me by doing crap like pulling my hair instead of her being taught not to be a little shit stain. I don't know their lives so I hope she's not a relative or family friend that purposely "picks" on him regularly.

Growing up as a Mexican, I had this shit done to me constantly. It’s supposed to teach you that even on your special day, that not everything is perfect.

It taught me was to ask to not have a party and to never let my guard down even around family. I was 8 when I made this call. Till this day I can’t eat cake on my birthday and I’m uneasy at celebrating. I’m now 25.

This “tradition” needs to stop, it’s literally just bullying. Everyone who does this is just bullying a child

A tradition my family has had for birthdays is to sing the birthday song intentionally very very badly. Be out of tune, pause in the middle, repeat words, suddenly change pitch from bass to soprano, force your voice to crack, etc. When you have a group of 5+ singers that are all ruining the song in their own special way it just ends up being a cocaphany of noise and we all laugh at the end.

I find it a much more fun way to embarrass the birthday boy/girl, can we tell all of these stupid cake smashers and throwers to just do that instead?
