My adorable 6 months toddler just turned 5 this year. Yes, it was possibly the most memorable birthday party ever. Last night, after all the celebrations and events, we were so exhausted that we couldn’t get out of bed for the next 12 hours. My son’s birthday was extremely delightful and amusing. We arranged a big birthday bash – something he’ll cherish for a long time to come. Although we’re not much keen on parties and prefer small family get-together, it was an exception this time.
When I look back at the occasion and flip through the memories on my digital camera, the ones that remain the strongest are probably those of the cake. As I struggled out of the bed and helped myself to a cup of coffee, I thought of sharing the entire cake planning process with you. Believe me it was total fun. Before we get to the main point, let me discuss what birthday cakes are all about.
A birthday celebration is never complete without a nice cake. Skillfully decorated and freshly baked, cakes have their own aura and elegance. In fact, it is the focal point of any birthday party. This is all the more applicable for kids, who eagerly wait for this day of the year. Therefore, it’s important to make sure that you do not let your child down with a poorly decorated cake.

Kids or youngsters get easily fascinated by a range of topics; you can easily take ideas from these subjects and use them for the decoration. That way, you’ll give a touch of custom-made excitement to your kid’s special day. After all, it’s his day and the theme that you choose must stand for your kid’s tastes and preferences.
