When it comes to a child’s birthday, they are often excited about the presents and party, but they also get excited about their birthday cake. Gone are the days when you could get away with creating a simple cake with some frosting and happy birthday written on it. Today’s cakes are more like intricate works of art, and some of the cake makers can make jaw-dropping designs. If your child has a birthday coming soon, below are some ideas of cakes that they may love and will help to make their day even more special.
Many children love dinosaurs, both girls and boys, and an excellent idea for a birthday cake is to have a dinosaur cake made in the shape of their favourite dinosaur. You can select from many different dinosaurs, and a skilled cake maker can make almost anything you want. Some of the types of dinosaurs you can consider selecting include:
- Tyrannosaurus Rex
- Woolly Mammoth
Make sure you have your camera ready for when they see their birthday cake as it will be something they love and remember for a long time to come.
Most children love Disney characters, and there are many different ones you can choose to make in the form of a cake. If your child has a favourite Disney film, you can make a cake of their favourite character in it that they will adore for their birthday. Some of the most popular Disney characters include:
- Mickey Mouse
- Minnie Mouse
- Buzz Lightyear
- Donald Duck
Make sure that you approach local cake makers in plenty of time to book their cake for their birthday, and you can help ensure your child will not be disappointed.
A Cake Of Their Pet Animal
You can also do something extremely personal and have a cake made in the form of your child’s pet animal, whatever that is. Whether you have a cat, dog, hamster, goldfish, or anything else, you can commission a cake in the shape of their pet animal. You will need to provide plenty of pictures for the cake maker to make it as realistic as possible, and you will also need to book it early. It may even surprise you at how good a job the cake maker can do at making a cake of the pet, and hopefully, the cake will taste as good as it looks.
A Cartoon Cake
You can also have a cake made in the shape of your child’s favourite cartoon character or a character from a movie or TV show. It can be based on a cartoon or a real-life person, and your child will love their cake if you choose something they love. Make sure that you select their favourite flavour of cake and a filling that will complement it. Your cake may look that good that you are reluctant to cut it up but having your cake and eating it is compulsory on your birthday.
