Is your child’s birthday just around the corner? Are you tired of the same old birthday cakes offered by your local grocer or baker? Do you want to do something original and fun? Are you feeling adventurous and would like to try your hand at baking it yourself? A homemade birthday cake is much more special than a bought one because you spent your time lovingly creating it. While your child may not realize it now, in the future, they will appreciate how much time you put into it.
There are many different birthday cake designs from which you can choose. You can even look for designs that will meet your skill level or designs that go along with the planned birthday party theme. While there are literally hundreds of different cakes you could decorate, here are three well loved favorites.
Take a simple sheet cake or a rectangle cake if you would prefer to call it so. Either purchase edible printer paper and inks from an office supply store or have an edible image printed from a specialty company. Then, decorate the cake with your child’s favorite color for the frosting. The edible image can be of anything. If the party has a theme, then you can use an image of that. Alternatively, you can even include an image of your child, which they will love.
Use two round cakes. Keep one whole and cut the other to resemble fins. You just need to cut triangle shapes. Then, arrange the fins around the circular cake. Then, you can frost it in whatever bright colors you wish. Within a few moments, you will have a fun fish cake. You can either use frosting for the fish eyes or use small candies.
Choose your child’s favorite cartoon character. Print out a picture of the character’s face as a guide. Then, cut the cake into the shape of the character’s face. With a little colored icing, you will have a fun shaped cake that your child will find perfect. If you choose to do this, you may want to purchase an icing bag with frosting tips, which will make it much easier to fill in the frosting for different colors on the cake.
When you need birthday cake designs, be creative and consider all of your options. Just make sure the birthday cake you complete will be something your child will love since their birthday is all about them!
