Kids Birthday Cake Ideas

I'm always on the hunt for fun but easy kids birthday cake ideas. After all the birthday cake is the central part of any kids birthday party.

However I've also learnt that although it is lovely if you can make a fabulous kids birthday cake, the kids are in fact always happy no matter what the cake looks like.

So don't panic if you are not a cake queen or if you think that you can't bake as I've got some great  ideas below for every type of baker plus lots of your submitted cake pictures.

Top Tips - Kids Birthday Cake Ideas

Tip #1: If your'e having a party theme, then make the shape of the cake to match the theme. Cover it with ready to roll icing and then add theme specific decorations. 

Tip #2: Don't make the decorations too complicated. The more complicated you make them then the more that can go wrong. There are lots of ready made decorations that you can buy in the supermarket. I often use plastic toys which always look great.

Tip #3: There is nothing wrong with using a packet cake mix if that is easier for you. They taste so good these days that no-one will ever guess! Or if you want a really quick and easy cake recipe then try my All In One Cake Recipe.

Tip #4: Don't make the cake on the day of the party. There will be too much else to do and you are more likely to panic. Make the cake well in advance and then freeze it. Defrost it and ice it the day before the party.

Tip #5: If you can't bake or don't want to then buy a supermarket ready made sponge. Cover it with bought frosting and then add your chosen decorations. That way it will still have a personalized look to it.
