I love celebrating birthdays but don’t always have lots of time to make the perfect birthday cake but my children love a homemade cake so here are some of the best easy birthday cakes for kids. Simple for you to make and they look as though so much work has been put into them!
Personally I can make a really delicious sponge cake but it doesn’t always turn out even so I need some help in covering up any imperfections. Other people swear by Aldi’s premade sponge and then jazz it up with decorations. The truth is there is no perfect birthday cake just the right one for your children and you. So don’t sweat the small stuff and have fun with our simple kids birthday cakes.
Easy Kids Birthday Cakes
Cover the uneven sides – This is my top way of making any cake look amazing. You can use anything from chocolate fingers, kitkats or chocolate bars.
This chocolate sponge simple kids birthday cake is covered in chocolate fingers and topped with smarties and it looks so effective.
This digger cake uses kitkats with the tops facing inward and looks so effective and is perfect for when your cake doesn’t turn out how you wanted!
Who said you even have to take the cake out of the tin. Look how pretty this cake looks decorated simply with soft icing and some hundred and thousands and you could easily change the colours to suit your child.
Whilst we are talking about sprinkles, how cool does this sprinkles cake look?
Or simple use a template to cover part of the cake, here the number and sprinkle those 100’s and 1000’s on top before removing it.
I love how effective this stained glass cake is.
I adore this fidget toy bubble popper cake it is so on-trend and colourful.
I adore how this simple store-bought cheesecake has been jazzed up with jellybeans.
I think this is a brilliant way to make a simple iced cake have the wow factor and in between all the letters you could have the persons make
No time to make the icing, then why not just melt some chocolate and add smarties or M&M on top?
