Do you have a little one anxiously counting down the days until their birthday? For many kids, nothing is more exciting than planning their big day, especially if mom and dad are helping them plan something special that involves their friends. Since store bought cakes can be rather expensive (and filled with scary ingredients), many parents are deciding to instead make cute cakes at home. As well, you can easily control the ingredients in your cake if you make it at home, making sure it isn’t too sweet or flat tasting like many of the cakes bought at your local big box retailer. I think we can all agree nothing beats the taste of a homemade cake!
Knowing that sometimes finding the perfect birthday cake (or cupcakes) can be challenging, we decided to make your search a bit easier with this adorable round up of super cute kid’s cakes. Below, you will find 10 of the cutest children’s cakes with detailed instructions and of course, the recipe. To see the full recipe, make sure to click on the big picture below!

I love these party cakes but I am not much of a baker, my 11yr daughter has taken over most the baking and does a much better job!! I will show her this post.

I love the triple layer rainbow cake. The recipe looks so much easier than other recipes for rainbow cakes I have seen before.
They’re all so colorful. Would make a splash at any child’s party. The basketball cupcakes are great for kids who love the game (how did I come to that conclusion? 😉 and for myself I am most interested in learning how to make the chocolate chip cookie cake.

I love the rainbow cake for my teen! My hubby would love the creamsicle cupcakes.
Those are cute cake ideas. I think at some age, every little girl would love a Barbie doll cake.

Those minion cupcakes are adorable! Kids will love them!
All theses cupcakes look yummy but I would love to try to make the Orange creamcicle
I’m always amazed at the creativity people have when baking. It truly is an art. I am cooking challenged but love seeing the ideas of others.
I just love the creamsicle cupcakes. I have never seen the recipe before and they look perfect and so fancy. Yum.

With 6 grandbabies these cake recipes and ideas will def come in handy.
These are adorable. I’ve seen many of those Babie cakes. I think I like the cookie cake.
Amy Green says
What fun ideas! I am especially drawn to the rainbow and Princess designs. This really is a great starter set of ideas to get inspiration from. The chocolate chip cookie cake is even great for any time of the year!
The cakes look good. I like cupcakes because they’re less of a mess. But, for a kids party, it pretty much has to be a cake.

My daughter’s b-day is April 30th and I am going to try making Orange Creamsicle Cupcakes!!
