Little boys and girls adore dinos! What would be better than recreating Jurassic life than with an edible birthday cake? Making a dinosaur cake can be as simple or as complex as you like. Make a cake with a dinosaur icing design to keep it easy or create a 3D cake with edible fondant dinosaur shapes to go on top!
Cars, Trains, & Trucks
Vroom vroom! If you have a little boy, then a car, train or truck birthday cake will surely make his day. Get creative and make a firefighter truck, police car, or a cute “choo choo” train. If your boy or girl has a knack for planes and boats, then creating an on-the-water or in-the-sky theme are great options for kids who love modes of transport!
Safari or Zoo
An animal-themed birthday cake will bring your little boy or girl a big smile on the day of their birthday. You can recreate safari or zoo animals with little, plastic animal miniatures to go on top, or make animal shapes by hand with a delicious buttercream fondant. There are plenty of online tutorials to help you recreate a DIY animal-themed birthday cake!
Is there a little boy or girl who doesn’t love Disney or have a favorite Disney character? Whether it’s Frozen’s silly Olaf, The Little Mermaid’s yellow and blue Flounder, or Moana’s quirky chicken Hei Hei, there is a Disney character for every boy and girl. Choose your child’s favorite and make it come to life!
Make your little girl’s dreams of being a princess come true with a princess-themed cake! You can make a three-tiered cake to create a castle shape. Decorate liberally with glitter and heart-shaped fondant to make it extra magical! Does your little girl have a favorite princess? Recreate a life-like princess with a colorful dress and crown. Add edible glitter, shiny beads, and a cake lust spray to make the dress sparkle like a true princess.
One of the most popular birthday cake ideas, superheroes are the classic go-to birthday cake design for brave little boys and girls. Whether your child is a Marvel or DC Comics fan, either an Iron Man, Wonder Woman, Batman, Spiderman, Hulk, or Thor birthday cake will undoubtedly brighten their day.
If your boy or girl doesn’t have an absolute favorite theme, any of the above birthday cake ideas will do the trick! After all, it’s the thought and labor of love that counts the most (plus, the cake will only last long enough for them to blow out their candles)!
