    I made this cake- neutral
    I made this cake myself- emphasises that I did the work
    I made the cake by myself- emphasises that no one helped me

    How about I myself made the cake? Is it the same as the second sentence, or is there a slight difference in meaning?

    Similar to the second. Then you could also have:
    I made myself the cake- for me not for other people.
