I look pretty and i am sweet

but still people like to reap me.

I am soft sometimes but still

people use razor knife to cut me

I am here to give you joy

but still people put fire on me

I am here to make you happy

but people use me to smear others face.

So what am I?

Hint 1:

People can have me at least once a year, but not necessarily.

    $\begingroup$ Do people normally smear birthday cakes on other people's faces? I've never actually seen it before, and it sounds kind of weird. $\endgroup$ – mmking May 7 '15 at 15:06

    $\begingroup$ I tend to think of the smearing as a wedding-cake tradition.. maybe "cake" is the intended answer and "birthday" and "wedding" are just two possible types of it. :-) $\endgroup$ – Hellion May 7 '15 at 16:44

    $\begingroup$ @mmking - Yes... I worked in India for a while, and my teams always made a big fuss over birthday celebrations, and smearing cake on their face was a mandatory part of it. $\endgroup$ – Kevin Rubin May 7 '15 at 19:33
