Awesome Party Cake Ideas for Kids!

You have to see these amazing birthday cakes for kids! These are super cute and fun!

These edible works of art were made by various talented decorators and bakeries across the world. Some are even made by moms and dads for their own kids. What they all have in common is that they all make me smile!

I have so much fun searching (literally) thousands of designs to bring you photos of those that are truly great. Cakes today can be so amazing. One can be a highlight at a birthday party for a child. A stunning cake can act as the centerpiece to the d├ęcor at a party, matching or complementing the party theme.

Oh, and by the way, don't let the 'kid cakes' thing throw you. These treats will delight any tween, teen, adult or senior too! Personally, I would love to have any of these cakes for my own event. I think you will too.

This sweet alligator cake has so much personality! What a cute idea for a jungle themed party or for a Florida Gators fan! This one has a pink bow, giving it a girly look for Lilly.

Cowgirl Up!

Check out all the special little details in this cowgirl princess treasure. The barnyard animals, the paisley print on the bandana, and the crown on the hat are just delightful.

How old is the birthday child going to be this year?

Looks like Curious George has gotten into yet another fun mess! The personality of this lovable character really comes through in this design. I'm not sure I would have the heart to cut into this one!

Circus Cake - Topsy Turvy, Mad Hatter - Another Unique Cake by Stacie!

You have to be amused by the fun tilted cakes that are popular today. I have heard them called Topsy-Turvy, Mad-Hatter, Tilted, Whimsical, and Wonky Cakes. They come in many more variations than even their names! What fun.

This cool circus cake with an adorable elephant on top. Notice the number 3 above his head, wrapped around a lollipop. Just too cute, huh? I love it.

An amazing cake can act as the centerpiece of any party.

Enchanted Castle - Happy Birthday, Princess!

Believe it or not, this incredibly charming unicorn cake was made by a stay-at-home mom, not some fancy & famous cake shoppe! Cake decorating is her "hobby!" I am so impressed with this very talented gal!
