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!
Birthday Cakes For Girls _ For a little girl you might consider making a princess, fairy, or mermaid cake, or a cake that is dedicated to their favorite doll or toy. Another option is to have a bakery turn a photograph of your child into an edible image and use that as a part of the cake's main decoration. When little ones see themselves on a cake, it always attracts their attention and brings many a grin, not to mention constantly sneaking peeks at themselves.
