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!
There are ways you could prepare good cakes which everyone would love. Adults like themes like a diary, a champagne bottle, or things which depict a favorite sports character. Therefore, cakes for adults do not need to be that vibrant. You may just have something simple with the name and good wishes of the person written on it. In the case of cakes for kids, you should consider what kids generally like. In the case of birthday parties for children, you could have designs showing baby blocks, puppies, teddy bears, blue skies, flowers, yellow ducks and the like.
