Let’s face it, we older folk typically don’t get very excited about our upcoming birthday party. After a certain age, a birthday party is just a friendly reminder that we are getting older so we don’t tend to put too much importance on it. Our kids, however, have a totally different perspective on their birthday party. For most kids a birthday party is a very special moment in their life, it is a time when a kid gets to invite all their friends, receive presents, and be a star for a day. Often times a kid will start talking about their birthday party months in advance. For this reason, it’s very important that we try to make their special day memorable. The key part of any birthday party is the cake so in this blog post we will go over a few tips to help you pick out the perfect cake for your kid’s birthday party.

Perfect Birthday Cake Ideas

Tip 1) Choose the right theme for the cake!- It’s always better to surprise your kid with a cake at their birthday party rather than involving them in the buying process. By making it a surprise they will be wondering what type of cake they are getting and if you get it right it will make their birthday party so much better. Keep in mind that your kid’s birthday party will involve all of their friends so just because they like to watch Dora in their spare time doesn’t mean they want all their friends to know that they love Dora. It’s important to pick a theme that your kid will be proud to show off to their friends. It should have a relevant decoration. For example, if your kid really loves fantasy characters, a unicorn-themed birthday cake is appropriate. Or you might wanna relate the cake to what season of the year it is, like fall.

Tip 2) Pick the correct size! –  Make sure you have enough cake for everyone. If you are inviting 20-30 guests make sure the cake is big enough so that nobody gets left behind. If you are inviting a large group of people and need a big cake you should look into getting a cake from Costco or Sam’s club as they sell big cakes.

Tip 3)  Don’t forget the candles!- The highlight of any kid’s birthday party is when they get to blow out their candles. If your kid is under 12 years old we recommend getting one small candle for each year instead of just getting one candle with a number. It makes it more fun to blow out multiple candles and all the kids will love it. And today there are candle alternatives like sparkler candles.

Tip 4) Order in advance!- Yes you can stop by any supermarket after work and buy a cake for your kid on their birthday but chances are the cake will not be very impressive. We know you love your kid and you want the cake to be special with their name and a cool theme so we recommend placing an order for the cake at least 3 business days in advance. You have to give them enough time to perfect your cake. There are a lot of bakeries where you can order in advance, like Couture Bakery

Tip 5)  Don’t forget plastic birthday plates!- Great way to make that birthday party even more special is by buying special birthday party plates that fit the theme of the cake. If the theme of the cake is ninja turtles imagine how cool it would be to have cake plates with different ninja turtles. Your kid will love it!
