We’re going to a birthday party for my best friend’s 5-year-old daughter this weekend, and it got me thinking. The weird thing is, it got me thinking, â€œHow can I make a tractor shaped birthday cake?â€ Why? Because my son’s third birthday is next month, and he is VERY into trucks and tractors and such these days. I even bought truck invitations and plates for his party. Well, I’m not sure I’m talented enough in the art arena to make a tractor cake, and I’ve never seen children’s birthday cake pans in the shape of a tractor, so that’s out. He seems to like Blues Clues a lot too, so the thought of making a Blues Clues birthday cake does hold some appeal. There are lots of cake pans for that.
On the other hand, if I can just make a recipe for best ever birthday cake, it probably won’t matter that much what shape it is. As long as there’s frosting on it and ice cream to go with it, I don’t think anyone will care! Once I got into search mode for cake recipes, I started realizing that there really are a ton of them to choose from. In fact, I could probably bake a different cake every week for a year and not duplicate them. Here are just a few tasty-sounding cake recipes that I’m going to have to try (although not every week!):
- Irish Cream Bundt Cake
- Chocolate Zucchini Cupcakes with Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting
- (Almost) Perfection Pound Cake
- Amazing Yellow Cake & Fluffy Frosting
If you have any good birthday cake ideas…birthday cake ideas for kids, in particular…I’d love to know about them. Just comment on this post â€” and thanks!
