Besides the one you’re celebrating, the cake is one of the most important parts of any birthday party, especially when it is a kid's birthday party. All of their friends would be looking forward to cutting the delicious cake and chomping it down afterward.
Since it is such an essential part of the celebration, it is necessary to get a cake that would appeal to everyone. While this can be difficult, a little thought and effort can ensure everyone is happy.
Deciding The Flavor
When you’re an adult, you may be tempted to try more intriguing and complex flavors of cakes. However, kids are rarely like that. Since most of the attendees of your little one’s patty will be kids, it is important to keep their preferences in mind.
Generally, kids enjoy having simple cakes. Therefore, it is best to go with a simple cake flavor such as chocolate or vanilla. If you're having a lot of guests at the party, you can opt to get two medium-sized cakes in each flavor. Almost everyone likes either chocolate or vanilla cake.
Icing or Frosting
This is where you can really have fun. Since the base of the cake is chocolate or vanilla, you can decorate the cake in almost any way you want. You can get your kid’s favorite cartoon character on the icing or make the fondant match the party’s decoration theme. The possibilities are endless.
Some common themes that you can opt for include superheroes, Barbie, pirates, cars, animals, fairies, princesses, or Harry Potter. Remember to include your kid in the decision as you want the cake to reflect their interests.
Most kids remember their birthday cakes for years to come. They continue bragging about that ‘Spider-Man cake on my 3rd birthday party’ for a long time. So make sure to create a memorable cake for your child.
