My wife's birthday is coming up next week, and I'm looking to get her a cake - she rarely ever has gotten her very own birthday cake, and I want to get her something she will really appreciate.
She has told me that her preference is for a cheesecake with cherry topping.
This presents a problem though - I do not like cheesecake at all. As I am the only one who will be there with her (We prefer private birthdays), I feel like it would be awkward for her to have a whole cheesecake and see me not having anything.
She did mention that she would also like yellow cake with chocolate frosting, but I feel like this would be a substitute to what she's really asking for - and I feel like if I got just one slice of cake for me and a whole cheesecake for her, she would still feel awkward (and that getting one slice of cheesecake for her and a whole yellow cake would be equally awkward).
I do not want to just get two slices of different cake either - as the real draw of this is for her to have an entire cake made for her birthday.
What can I do so that my wife won't feel awkward about getting so much cheesecake?
