Homemade Birthday Cakes - Ideas to Jazz Up the Celebration

Do you wish to explore ideas for homemade birthday cakes?

Although cakes from a bakery can be artful and beautiful, ranging from the very simple to multilevel and all decked out, the homemade cakes still rank high on the rating lists. This can be proven by the dollars spent on do-it-yourself cake making kits and supplies.

If you find special satisfaction in being creative and have not checked out what is available, you are missing a treat.

There are pre-formed molds for just about everything you can imagine - certainly cake forms for kids anyway, starting with Aladdin and ending with the Wizard of Oz characters. There are thus endless ideas for homemade birthday cakes which you could experiment with, from cartoon characters to superheroes.

For girls, there are Barbie molds as well as assorted Disney princess characters to choose from. Angelina Ballerina, Bratz, Hello Kitty, Minnie Mouse, Kim Possible, one of the Power puff Girls, Raggedy Ann, Tinker-bell or Strawberry Shortcake are all available to delight any young girl and her friends. Not only that, but decorations as well as favors and tables settings can be purchased to match, ensuring that any little girl will be delighted with her favorite character.

Now, what about homemade birthday cakes for the boys?

What young man would not like inviting his friends over for a cake and favors decorated with Bionicles, Cars, Dragon Tales, Herbie, Ice Age, Madagascar, Lion King or Monsters Inc. characters, or their favorite Ninja Turtle, or comic character - Hulk, Batman, Spiderman or Superman, Mickey Mouse, Pink Panther, Shrek, Robots, Star Wars characters like R2D2, all time favorite Scooby Doo, Thomas the Train, or Toy Story favorites?

Truly, the choices for homemade birthday cakes are endless for boys and girls of this age bracket. But even if your birthday person is younger, there are characters from Blue's Clues, Care Bears, Diego, Dora the Explorer, Dumbo, Finding Nemo, Humpty Dumpty, Max & Ruby, Pinocchio, Sesame Street, Spirit, Tweety, My Little Pony, Veggie Tales and several of the Winnie the Pooh characters.

How about homemade birthday cakes for adults?

Themes for older people can be planned around the particular birthday, such as the 21st, the 40th, 60th, or any other over the hill celebration. They can also be centered round such themes as Garfield, Peanuts, NASCAR, Family Guy, Godzilla or King Kong (depending on his / her disposition), Betty Boop, Transformers or video / computer games of interest like Pacman or Mario Bros.

For certain types of food and / or drink lovers, there are cakes shaped like their favorite food - beer bottles, cans or cooler, martini glasses, pizzas, or big bowls of ice cream.

Actually, homemade birthday cakes do not have to be cakes at all. They can be giant chocolate chip cookies, or made of ice cream, brownie mix or with favorite flavors. For an older checker player, the cake can look like a chocolate and vanilla checker board. For an older woman, they can represent something of importance about her life. For someone who loves the flavor of orange - an orange bunt cake drizzled with orange glaze and served with orange sherbet can add flare.

Cakes can be baked in nearly every flavor - the popular ones, but then again, it is so easy to add any of the dozens of liquid flavoring available - rum, Licorice, root beer or peanut butter. All types of flavored candy chips, or pieces of candy bars to be added or sprinkles over the top in a favorite color. The possibilities for decorating a homemade birthday cake are absolutely unlimited.

Have fun making your own birthday cake!
