Hints for Kid Birthday Cake Ideas

For kid's parties, ask the child what their input. They may have some specific ideas in mind as to a color or design.

Also, for a children's party, plan on having enough birthday cake for each child, plus a few extras (accidents happen and cake gets dropped on the ground at every party!). I also like to include a piece for mom & dad (we like cake too...)
