Character Cakes: If your little one is obsessed with a film, television, or cartoon character, or even a licensed doll or toy, a character cake is the no_fail way to go! Disney character cakes or Barbie cakes are always popular with the girls, and what little boy wouldn't enjoy a Bob the Builder or G.I. Joe cake? Fortunately, finding the perfect kids birthday cake mold is easy __ you can obtain a specialized cake mold for the most popular licensed characters at your local upscale baking store or cake decorating supply shop. As if it couldn't get any easier, many specialty children's birthday cake molds come complete with frosting instructions.
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!
