Decorate_your_own Cake: Moms who hate decorating kids birthday cakes will love this suggestion __ provide the basic ingredients (cupcakes, frosting, piping bags, spreading knives, small candies, etc.) and let the birthday boy or girl and his/her guests decorate their own cupcakes! Just lay down a plastic tablecloth and provide plastic aprons for each guest to minimize the mess!
The cake theme basically comes down to focusing on what the child is most interested in, so, as a parent, you have the opportunity to be the Cake Hero and provide your youngster with a cake that will make their eyes open wide and smile with delight as they shout out, "Wow! This is really cool!"
