Who knows what day of the year the most birthdays fall on? I had no clue; it is September 16th! With this in mind we wanted to share with you the lengths some parents will go to in order to make their children have the best parties and events ever. These findings are from a survey conducted by for Country Crock of over 1,000 parents with children in their homes and I think you will be very surprised to find that cakes seem to be at the top of everyone's list when it comes to the most important aspect of a great event. Country Crock can definitely help you bake up your own magnificent, crowd pleasing affordable cake!


o   The top three occasions parents spend a lot of time preparing for are:

    • Winter holidays (i.e., Christmas, Hanukkah, etc.) – (73 percent)
    • Their child’s birthday – (68 percent)
    • Thanksgiving – (38 percent)
o   87 percent  of parents listed “the pressure they put on themselves” as the leading common stressor when planning a child’s birthday party

o   82 percent of parents claim the birthday cake is the most important component of a child’s birthday party

o   When preparing for a child’s birthday, 56 percent of parents surveyed finish the cake between the hours of 10 p.m. and midnight, the evening before the event; 21 percent stay up until between midnight and 2 a.m.

o   And despite the stress caused, a homemade cake is the way to go as  61 percent of parents said that they would prefer to bake a cake over buying one, and 70% of parents involve their kids in the baking process


      o   The three most important aspects of a great kid’s cake are:
1)      Taste (86 percent)
2)      Decorations (69 percent)
3)      Personalization (50 percent)
      o   Favorite cake base:  
1)      Chocolate (41 percent)
2)      Vanilla (32 percent)

Country Crock is helping reduce birthday-cake stress with recipes parents can bake in about an hour or less.
