Even the most organized parent can sometimes feel at a loss for birthday cake ideas for kids. With all of the cartoon characters, toys, and movies that the typical tot is interested in, it can be difficult to settle on just one.

Or maybe you’re just the opposite – maybe you’re having trouble coming up with even one idea for a childrens birthday cake.

Whatever your situation, here we’ll give you some great ideas for making your child’s next birthday cake extra special.

A very popular idea is to make a cake with a movie theme. Does your child have one favorite movie that they watch over and over? It’s usually easy to find cake decorations that tie in to major movie releases. A plain sheet cake can be transformed into a Harry Potter spell book with some creative frosting placement and a few small plastic decorations.

Even if you have no experience making decorated birthday cakes, specialty pans make it easier than ever to make the perfect Dora the Explorer cake for your little girl, or Batman cake for your little boy. These pans usually come with decorating ideas and instructions to help you make the perfect character cake.

Some other popular birthday cake ideas for kids play on a special interest of the child. Is your son on the football team at school? You can bake a football-shaped cake with the help of a special pan, then decorate it with your son’s jersey number. Is your little girl an aspiring ballerina? Try making a ballerina cake in the style of the much-loved Barbie doll angel food cake, putting a real doll into a baked cake and decorating the doll and cake with frosting.

There are always the old standbys that almost every kid will enjoy, like pirates and princesses.

Look at your child’s favorite toys and pay attention to the pictures they draw to get some great cake ideas. 

Or, just wander through your local craft store’s cake decorating section to be inspired. You’ll see birthday cake ideas for kids almost jumping off of the shelves at you! There are pans, plastic decorations, edible pictures, and sugar sculptures that can all be used to make a cake that will put a huge smile on your birthday kid’s face.
