I realized that I’ve made a few fun birthday cakes over the years, so I thought I’d give you guys a look.
Smart Junior turned 11th two weeks ago and we celebrated her birthday with her travel basketball team, so of course I had to do a basketball cake. You know you want to Pin it!! 🙂 Those are Reece’s Pieces, but you could use M&Ms too. Separating the colors is a good job for the kiddos, unfortunately I didn’t have any home with me while I was making this creation. This is a standard 2-layer cake, frosted with chocolate frosting. Be sure to add the Reece’s Pieces BEFORE the frosting hardens. I started with the line of brown pieces all the way down the middle. Then I made another straight line intersecting the middle of the first line. Then I added the two curvy lines on either side. The last thing to do is fill in the empty spots with orange Reece’s Pieces. It’s super easy with a great result!
Night Owl Cake
The Night Owl was for my daughter’s 10th birthday. I got the idea from Family Fun magazine and liked that it was actually made from cupcakes. I find cupcakes so much easier to serve to guests. This cake was for Smart Jr’s 10th birthday which was at Pump It Up. No need to bring a knife! I used Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies because her birthday is during cookie season.
It had little owl babies too…
Puppy Dog Cake and Cupcakes
For her 9th birthday she had puppy dog cupcakes. The cookie ears were delicious of course!
It was such a hit the first year, I made it again for his second birthday. I like this one better.
