The 5 Best Cakes For Your Child’s Fall Birthday Party

Birthdays are all about cake, cake, cake, cake. I mean come on, did you think they were about anything else? We all just want a slice or two at our birthday celebration, but it is important that the couple of slices are worth the extra calories. We comprised a list of 5 darn good birthday cakes for you, or your child’s birthday celebration that will leave your mouth watering.

 

Candy Wonderland

Talk about a little kid’s dream all in one cake. Almost every type of candy (Hershey’s bars, lollipops, sweet and sour rolls, white chocolate covered wafers) has been wedged into this cake that faintly reminds us of Alice in Wonderland meets Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory. This is definitely an eye-gasmic cake.

 

Unicorn Dream Cake

There’s something about unicorns that peak almost every little girl’s interest. They’re cute, they’re mystical, and magical – just like this cake. It’s important to get creative with kid’s cakes because as much as they like eating, they also like something that looks good to eat. Therefore, we think it’s the perfect cake to set your daughter (or son’s) unicorn or pink-themed birthday party with.

 

M&M 3-Tier Cake

M&M’s are great on their own, and on cookies, but I’ve never tried them on a cake. So after having this, it tops my list of must have cakes. It has more M&M’s on it than you’ll need in a lifetime. Now thats’s saying something ūüėČ Your kids will go crazy for this one (and so will you).

 

Windmill Chocolate Cake

I call this a chocolate cake with a twist, get it? The chocolate chunks at the top of the cake are placed in a motion of a windmill, which definitely adds a dynamic aspect to the classic chocolate cake. This cake is sprinkled with chocolate chips on the exterior and has a moist delectable interior that will have you coming back for thirds.

 

Chocolate Truffle Tiramisu Cake

This is another one for the chocolate lovers. This tiramisu cake is for slightly older taste buds (perhaps 15 years and up) in order for it to be fully appreciated. Tiramisu cake has a way of looking almost too perfect. In a way it’s reminiscent of a iced chocolate macchiato, with hints of coffee and truffle bites; which is why this cake has made our top 5 best cakes list.

For a birthday party or even a Bar/Bat Mitzvah, these colorful lollipop centerpieces will catch a lot of attention (and hungry eyes). A simple styrofoam ball and some glue can add multi layers and everyone will have fun taking a lollipop as the night goes on. Adding blow pops to these dum dums, can add some dimension to the tables.

A bridal shower can benefit from the zen and tranquil effects of fresh lavender. Tie these around a votive and light the candle for a beautifully scented party. Sage can also work wonderfully or my personal fav is putting lose jasmine buds floating in water bowls Рheavenly!!!!

Wine and beer lovers rejoice!! Drink up, empty those bottles and get to spray painting! The key is to have multi-shaped bottles so get creative when you go shopping at the liquor store. Remember, safety first: cover your mouth when spray painting, allow a day for it to dry, transport them safely and fill with your fav florals. This can be used at a bridal shower, wine themed birthday or even a cocktail party. Add some color to votive candles, to complete the look.

Birdcages have been increasingly popular to collect gift envelopes, but this touch of florals creates a romantic touch to any event. Add some rose petals and multi-tiered votive candles on the base, but watch out for those hanging vines!

Rustic themes are all the rage, especially in the fall. With creative uses of mason jars and natural tree trunks, you can bring the outdoors to any table. Moss, eucalyptus, and twine easily lend themselves to a natural theme – just take it easy with the weight of the trunks!
