From choosing the theme, to selecting the favors to planning the games and activities, planning a birthday party is exciting for kids (and parents!) of all ages. The fun, funny and cute options are virtually endless! And what birthday party would be complete without a cake?
Make a real splash with an alternative to the traditional sheet cake. Here are some great ideas to help you get started.
Craft a cake from seasonal fruit—it’s light, it’s fun and it’s healthy! Stack layers from different types of melon and decorate with smaller fruits like berries, banana slices and kiwi.
Frozen, chocolate-covered banana pops are a treat for guests of all ages. Plus there is no complicated recipe or baking time. You can serve the simple chocolate-covered version or dress your bananas up with sprinkles, nuts, coconut, candy and more.
The layered look never looked so good with this twist on a perennial favorite. For this bar-turned-cake, prepare and press the Rice Krispies mix into varying size pans. When the mix has set, stack the sizes on top of each other and decorate with berries, candies and more. Or try a cupcake version by pressing the mix into muffin tins and topping with icing!
Whether you make your own or pick up them up at the local bakery, a cake made from stacks of donuts is great for those who want to enjoy their birthday cake on the go. Pile them high or alternate flavors and styles for a delicious display.
Better Than Breakfast
It’s time pancakes and waffles got to graduate out of the breakfast category. Go with the traditional flavor or mix up the batter up with chocolate, nuts, sprinkles or berries. Start with a layer of pancakes or waffles and add generous helpings of whipped cream to secure the layers.
No matter the cake – or uncake – you choose, let the kids get involved! They’ll love helping construct their own celebratory treat!
