    Make a cake that looks like one of her favorite fairy tales.

    My mom makes a cake that looks like a doll in a ball gown. It's really cute! It's not that difficult. You could probably find the cake mold online.

    I like the idea shared by many to make a cake based on a favorite fairy tale. You could also make one based on a favorite story, character, tv show, book, etc. If you are on PInterest, there are several great ideas and guides to help you decide and make a birthday cake. As a girl myself, some of my favorites were a unicorn cookie cake and a Batman/Gotham city cake smile; what girl/woman doesn't love Batman! Whatever cake is made, bake some love into it and she will be sure to love it and remember that birthday for years to come!

    Since the two of us are already following one another here on the hub pages Laura, I thought I'd take a shot at this question. Dora the explorer seems to be a very popular little girls cartoon today, and your imagination could run wild when decorating this cake for your little girl. Also I just had to throw this in since we are talking about cakes. See if you can tell me what the name is of this birthday cake, so far no one has gotten it yet - http://theholestory.hubpages.com/hub/Mystery-Cake

    Here are a few creative ideas.
    Birthday Cake Ideas for Little Girls Totally Pink Theme

    This birthday cake is extremely easy to make. All you need is a white cake mix, two tubs of vanilla frosting, red food coloring, bubble gum extract, and pink candy. Prepare the mix as directed on the package and add a teaspoon of bubble gum extract. Use two round pans to bake the birthday cake in. Once the cake is cool, mix the vanilla frosting with just enough red food coloring to turn the frosting pink and then apply more frosting than you think is necessary. Trust me; little girls will think it's just enough. Then decorate the birthday cake with the pink candy. If you want to, let your little girl pick out the type of candy she wants and then let her decorate the birthday cake.

    Birthday Cake Ideas for Little Girls Barbie Beach Theme

    If your little girl loves Barbie, she will love this birthday cake theme. For this theme, you will need to bake a cake in a 9 x 13 inch pan. The flavor isn't important in this theme. Just choose a flavor that your little girl loves. The rest of the ingredients you will need include a box of vanilla wafers, two tubs vanilla frosting, blue food coloring, gummy fish, gummy sharks, a Barbie sized beach chair, and a Barbie doll in a bikini. The first think you will need to do is crush the vanilla wafers in a food processor until they are fine crumbs. Next color one of the tubs of frosting with the blue food coloring. Apply the first tub of white frosting to one end of the birthday cake. On the other end, frost the birthday cake with the blue frosting. Next sprinkle on the crushed vanilla wafers. These will be the sand. Overlap the blue frosting with the crumbs so that it looks like the tide is coming in. Then add you gummy candy to the ocean and put the chair in the sand. I suggest adding Barbie to her chair once the birthday cake is placed in its finally spot or she may fall over.

    I agree with flashmakeit. But I would go for an all Disney Princess cake.

    On Valentine's Day, my aunt bakes a pink cake using strawberry cake mix and tops it with pink frosting (store brought). It's a very simple recipe, particularly if you don't feel like making a cake from scratch and is perfect for a young girl's birthday party as well as for Valentine's Day. It's also yummy!

    You can do theme cakes if you like, of course. But, in my view, the best cake idea for a girl's party is the same for a boy's party: a cake that, above all, TASTES GOOD!

    I'm sure all of us have ideas about what girl's --- as opposed to boys --- are supposed to like, as if it is different. Is the party for your daughters, nieces, best friend's daughter, or something like that?

    In that case, if you want to do a 'theme' cake, then you would need to find out the specific interests of the party girl in question. In the twenty-first century, I should think we are a bit beyond the typical feminine stereotypes.

    Barring all of that, and since you give us no background, let me say that a great cake idea for a girl's party is very similar to what would be a great idea for a boy's party: namely, a cake that tastes good!! How about a German chocolate cake?

    Take it easy.

    When my little girl turned 5 last year, I made a round cake and put her favorite Barbie doll on top then covered Barbie with icing, from her waist down to the base of the cake, such that the icing looked like the skirt of her ball gown.

    Really  it would depend on the birthday girl. I made a princess cake for my daughter this year because she loved any sort of doll/baby/girl with a face. You can see it here: http://sadie423.hubpages.com/hub/make-a … ial-colors
    She loved it!

    I probably wouldn't do this myself especially since I'm not too creative in the kitchen but and idea that my fiance was thinking of for my daughter's first birthday was a princess castle with all the princesses on it (I know, a little bit extravagant for a first birthday). Not sure what he all has planned for it but that's a general idea!
