Fun Cakes For Kids

Today’s post is just for kids… or parents of kids… or the kids at heart.  I have been “collecting” fun (and incredible) cake ideas for kid parties, and thought I’d share a few with you.

First, from Bird on A Cake – a timely Frankenstein cake/tutorial.  You’ll also want to check out all her cake decorating tutorials – you’ll love her creations!


Now, this next one is labeled as a Groom’s Cake, from Cake Balls… but it could just as easily be a kids’ sports cake too! My guess is that she made chocolate truffles and dipped them in different colored candy coating to make the sports ball. Oreo Truffle Balls would work great for these!

I just LOVE this next cake.. and the tutorial that goes with it!  From Bronnie Bakes, a Very Hungry Caterpillar cake.   You can make your own marshmallow fondant that is easy to work with and taste great!

From Gluesticks, another great tutorial… this time how to make a Cheeseburger Cake.  LOVE it!  She uses marshmallow fondant too!

And finally, from Picture Perfect Cakes… I couldn’t pass up sharing this lego cake picture , since I have two lego obsessed boys in my house.  They would LOVE this cake… but might have a hard time letting me cut it up to eat!

Have you made a fun kids’ cake lately?  Let us know… we’d love to hear about it!
