Hey, we get it. As a busy mom you don’t have hours upon hours to spend creating the perfect cake for your kid’s birthday party but that doesn’t mean you don’t want to. We’ve scoured the internet just for you to find easy solutions to take an ordinary cake and make it extraordinary in a few simple steps.

Use Fruity Pebbles as Funfetti

So you don’t want your little one constantly eating sugary cereal for breakfast but it’s their birthday party, so why not let them live a little and eat it on their cake? The classic Flintstones themed cereal Fruity Pebbles may be good in milk, but it’s even better stuck to frosting on a cake. It gives a festive feeling to the normal vanilla frosting covered confection. You can use this simple trick with store bought or homemade cake to impress the other parents at your kid’s birthday party.

Confetti Marshmallow Number Toppers

Candles in numbers shapes are fun but they’re not edible, unless you’re into that waxy kind of taste. The problem is, as we all know, if your little one is young enough, they like to put everything in arm’s reach into their mouth. Why not have all the functionality of a number candle with the fun of a edible marshmallow? It’s the perfect customizable and outside the box addition to any cake.

The Bear Necessities

Have a son or daughter who is a fan of bears and has a sweet tooth? Why not decorate their birthday cake in a way that reflects those likes but doesn’t take much effort on your part? This gummy bear decorated cake is simple yet sensational. Use a store bought cake and add your little gelatinous woodland friends or get ambitious and make a cake that has a colorful surprise on the inside. Whatever you decide to do, your child and their friends will love it!

Alphabet Magnet Cake Toppers

We all remember those colorful alphabet and number magnets that used to adorn either mom’s fridge or the boards at our elementary schools. While they’re great for holding Johnny’s latest drawing or learning how to spell, there is a new and unique way to use them. You guessed — most likely from the title of this section — they can be used as cake toppers. You can spell anything or make any age relatively easy and cheap.
