Kid's Birthday Cakes made by you!

We've seen our customers make some amazing kids birthday cakes. From first time efforts to advanced cake decorating, kids love cakes made by mums and dads. Here's a few pictures of their birthday cakes, many are themed for the party.

Build a Birthday have a range of novelty cake tins and standards shapes and sized tins for hire. Most of the tins have step by step instructions on how to make and ice the cake. We provide all the cake decorating supplies you will need and plenty of advice for free!

Take some ideas and inspiration for your next birthday or special occasion cake. 

Layer Cakes and Drip Cakes

See this fantastic layered rainbow cake stuffed with lollies. Perfect for the My Little Pony or Unicorn party. Wilton Icing Colour Concentrated Gels are perfect for keeping that cake nice and bright.

The Pokemon Drip Cake was decorated with a Pokemon Ball from our shop, which was a lovely treat for the birthday boy. I like the featured chocolate bark on both of these wonderful creations.

This stunning duo of pastel rainbow and dark and mysterious unicorn cakes have been made by Bridget Cheesman of Cake it Forward using the Princess Sienna sprinkle medley.

Buttercream Cakes

This simple but well executed Cupcake Dress Cake makes serving the cake so easy. The added touch of tiara, wand and diamante ribbon, adds some glamour to the occasion. To get that classic cupcake swirl, we recommend the 1M tip and if you need a buttercream recipe see our buttercream recipe blog.

This super cute Carebear Cake was made with one of our hire tins. The tin comes with a number that can be searched on It gives step by step instructions including the amounts and colours for the icing, plus tips sizes. 

Can you believe that one of these cakes was a first time attempt using the colours, tips and tools? It's so rewarding for parents to see the smile on their child's face when they see the cake made by mum or dad. We enjoy helping our customers their goals with their cake decorating.

Fondant Cakes

This Mermaid Cake is the first fondant cake made by a 12 year old girl. The sea ruffles on the side are different shades of blue and the mermaid and sea creatures are made with our fondant modelling tool set. We can can provide plenty of tips on how this can easily be achieved.

Come and see our Minecraft cake in store. We can help you with the steps to achieving this look, or see our Minecraft Blog.

How creative is the construction cake, that utilises cake crumbs and chocolate coated lollies for boulders. You can use construction toys but in this case they have been made with fondant. The road cone candles fit well with the theme. 

Some of these cakes were inspired by others seen on Pinterest. Sometimes the kids want all their favourite super heroes on their cake. Our batman cookie cutter comes in very handy, not to mention the circles, stars and many other shapes. If the shape isn't available then you can always print the image on paper, trace it, then cut it out of paper. Then use this stencil to trace around the outside with your fondant modelling tools.

Easy cakes with Edible Images

Sometimes we are just too busy or not that into cake decorating. We could be faced with a difficult theme or want to feature a photo or image on the cake. Edible images for cakes, cupcakes and biscuits are as simple as removing the icing sheet and applying it to a buttercream or fondant cake. This can easily be applied to a store bought cake too!

We can custom print almost any image for your cake or you can purchase from our range of popular edible image designs, these come in round, rectangular, cupcake, icons and wafer images. Wafer images can be bent to make 3D designs like these butterflies on this cute cake.

 Other Creative Cakes and treats

There are plenty of other creative cakes you can make, like this one made for our Dinosaur Blog. It was reasonably simple to make. 

These McMacarons are delightful. I just couldn't miss them. Such a fun treat for any party.

How creative is this Moana cake? Starting with the number seven cake tin, then decorating it to the theme. The biscuit crumbs are a great effect for sand.

I bet Oliver was thrilled to receive this awesome pirate ship cake! The chocolate coins and pirate figurines really finish it off nicely.
