Let’s face it. The birthday cake is the highlight of every child’s birthday celebration. It’s the centrepiece that wows not only the kids but the adults too.  An impressive birthday cake with a happy child does make a great photo opportunity!

Lucky for us in Singapore, getting themed cakes is relatively easy. The popular cartoon licensed characters are readily available at the popular chains such as Swensen’s or Bengawan Solo at rather affordable prices. Someone will know of someone who takes private orders for awesome themed cakes but that comes with a hefty price tag and you probably have to self-collect on the day of the party. Or just call Lalamove or Ninja Van.

Involve your kids and have lots of fun baking a birthday cake

If you have been toying with the idea of baking your kid’s themed cake, here are some tips and tricks that can not only help you save some money but also impress both the little ones and adults at the party.

The easy way out

Baking with kids

This works well if you cannot bake or may have forgotten to order a cake.

Must bake yourself

This requires a little more effort and works for the moms who are adamant to produce the cake themselves but has never baked a cake before.

A cake is too troublesome

Instead of cake tins, the same trick applies to cupcakes! You either buy readily available cupcakes and dress it up yourself or you use the ready cake mix and pour it into colourful cupcake baking cups which Phoon Huat stores do have a huge variety in terms of sizes, colours and design. If you are planning to go the cupcake route, most partyware shops do have cupcake rings or wrappers and cupcake stands that brings the theme to life! For more ideas, you will be amazed how much inspiration and ideas you can find online, even if you are not artistically inclined!

What ’s more, if you are attempting to do it yourself at home, you can even rope in your little one to help with the decorations or even just licking the frosting off the spoon. Making the birthday cake together at home will bring great memories for both you and bubba next time!
