Cool Boy Birthday Cakes

This was a football field.  He LOVED it!   So easy.  I just looked on line to see what a football field looked like (yes, I am a dork when it comes to sports), and used frosting to make the lines.

Penguins rock in our house.  This was a fun one to do - and SUPER EASY!

This one was a little harder, but not impossible.  I printed out the logo from the internet, cut it up and then used it as a stencil for the SOX words and sprinkled black sugar to make the words.

This one was the best.  I saw a lot of suggestions with the number 8 on line, but my son was turning 5, so I just adjusted the race track and made it a number 5.  He LOVED it!

This Olympics one was fun and EASY!  Five rings in different colors.  Awesome!

Smurfs.  Who doesn't love them.  They were easy.  I just piped some grass on the cake and made a road.  Then I placed some Smurf characters along the road.  You can let each guest take a Smurf home as a party favor.

Star Wars.  Who doesn't love that.  These are supposed to be light sabers.  Not my best cake creation, but cute all the same.  Each kid picked their favorite color to eat.

COOL BOY BIRTHDAY CAKES

When it comes birthday time, do your kids ask for fabulous cakes? Do they give you lists of intricate designs to put on their cakes? No! Mine do. ALL THE TIME!! They are always asking me for "special" cakes. I am constantly scouring the Internet and Cooking Magazines (as well as Family Fun) for cool things I can make on their cakes. Here are some of my favorite ones over the years. They are not hard to make (if I can do it - you should have NO problem).

I created some of these designs on my own and some I pilfered from the Internet. Some I adjusted to meet our needs, like the 5 racetrack. All I found on the Internet were the number 8 for a racetrack, and since my son was not turning 8, it was no help. So, I thought I would try the number 5. It worked great. He LOVED that cake. It was the most fun. I tried putting his real cars on there for a cooler effect, but too much frosting got in the tires and he cried, so I resorted to the candy ones from the store.

The football field was cute. I printed a little picture of my son playing football and cut it out, taped it to a toothpick, and placed it on the field kicking a football. Everyone loved that. I think that picture (and the toothpick) are still in his room somewhere.....

Penguins rule in our house, so that one was a must. I did it freehand based on a picture fomr a animal magazine. Not too hard.

The light sabers were too easy as well. The only thing there is I would have connected the frosting, so they really looked like light sabers. Keeping the cupcakes apart made it just look like dots. The kids kept asking me what the cake was supposed to be. Seriously, I told them to use their imaginations. No one got it!!!

As they get older they are not asking for as many designs, just more intricate cakes (like ice cream cakes with caramel and marshmallows or other fillings), but I so enjoyed making these over the years. The kids loved them all and I loved taking the time to make them. I felt like they were getting a part of me for their birthday and I was showing them how much I loved them.

Enjoy!
