When you’re organizing a birthday party for your boy or girl, there are tons of things to have in mind. There’s no kid in the world who doesn’t love birthday bashes, but this doesn’t make the task any easier – you need to decide where to hold it, how many guests you’ll invite, what theme and decorations to choose and which food to serve. Also, the thrill of playing and dressing up can be topped only with the excitement over the birthday cake so you need to make an awesome, unique cake that will surely be remembered and talked about.
Your choice of cake should depend mostly on the birthday theme. If you’re organizing a pirate-themed party, bake a treasure map cake to match the kids’ costumes. Just because you booked a party venue, doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy a unique, creative birthday cake. Some venues will allow you to bring your own cake, while some will take care that your birthday boy or girl gets the cake of their dreams. If you truly want to amaze your kid with a stunning treat, check out these great homemade cake recipes and try them out!
Kids just love the animal world – and if you decide for a cute animal-themed cake, you won’t be mistaken. The hedgehog cake is one of the best, simplest and tastiest cakes you can make. It’s decorated with lots of chocolate details and it’s extremely rich in taste, thanks to cocoa, butter, vanilla and eggs. This delicious cake doesn’t require much effort and it can survive in the fridge for at least 4-5 days.
A rainbow cake is a treat that will certainly fascinate both kids and adults with its looks and taste. This cake is easy to make even for the beginners – the only trick is to make colorful “sponges” dense and even. This amazing treat is equally loved by boys and girls and is suitable for most party themes. There are lots of recipes and variations on the theme, but my favorite is the one with cream cheese icing.
If you want to test your cake making skills, look no further – the dollhouse cake is a perfect venture for you. This cake is all about frosting and coloring – you’ll need some previous experience and a deft pair of hands. If you’re preparing this cake for a birthday girl, be sure that she will be thrilled. This visually stunning cake will surely be remembered and the kids will talk about it for days!
