Close your eyes and make a wish. As you blow out all eight candles, you know exactly what everyone is looking at: the cake! While you are as cute as a button, the center of attention as those candles burn low is that delectable-looking cake of which everyone will soon get a slice. The cake, because of your great planning, no doubt fits in perfectly with the theme of your party, which is conveniently princesses, superheroes, Barney, Sesame Street, Power Rangers or one of your other favorite things. And thanks to DIY Cakes: Birthday Party Food for Kids by Kids, the cake looks and tastes great.

Your birthday only comes around every 365 days, so it should be special when it does. Make your birthday party food as fun as can be this year by crafting it yourself. Sure the grocery store decorates the cake okay and they usually spell your name right, but no one can make your cake as personalized to the birthday star as you can with DIY cakes.

Calling all mini Betty Crockers to take out the sprinkles, frosting, and fondant and get to baking your birthday party food for kids by kids. Cupcakes and cake pops are becoming increasingly popular as they allow each guest to pick his own flavor or style, and they give you more decorating fun and freedom.  So, if as you turn ten you’re thinking that you’d like both strawberry cake with vanilla frosting and yellow cake with light chocolate frosting, these little nibbles will be your best bet.  If cake isn’t your thing, there are marshmallow pops and Rice Krispie pops too, so no taste buds will go unpleased.

Grab your apron and chef’s hat and get ready for your best party yet with amazing birthday party food for kids by kids. You don’t have to worry about an ugly cake showing up five minutes before the party or Aunt Cindy forgetting to put the sugar in the mix once again when you make magnificent DIY cakes on your own. This year as you blow out the candles, you’ll be wishing that your piece of cake is extra large!

Don't worry about running out of slices, as these perfectly portioned cups of cake can be counted out beforehand. Tangle your guests in yumminess with a webby Spider-Man cupcake or warm their tummies with delight as they bite into the deliciousness of the chocolately campfire cupcakes. These adorable mini cakes are sure to wow your guests so much that on Monday at school everyone will still be talking about your awesome party food.

Homemade Birthday Cake

Cheeseburger Cake

While having a birthday cake is standard, having a cheeseburger as dessert is wacky and fun. Program fun into your friends as they chomp on the sweet candylicious robot cake or transport the whole party into a fairytale as you all devour the tasty mushrooms and soft forest floor. Your unique cake is sure to be a big hit, and your buds will be especially amazed when you explain that you made the cake yourself.

Birthday Cake Cake Pop Fun

Sesame Street Marshmallow Pops

Gotta have my pops! Cake pops are all the rage, and they're so much fun to make as well as eat. Keep the party going because with cake pops you don't need to sit down with a plate and fork to enjoy their tastiness. Instead, they are great as grab-and-go party favors or for a quick, non-interruptive snack as the party continues to rock.
