Most people want to be able to make their kids happy on their birthday. Sometimes it is the easiest thing for parents who struggle with making cakes or other foods, but there are some ideas that do not require any experience in cooking. These cakes can simply be purchased from a birthday cake shop, or even made at home with the help of a dozen different items found in your pantry. Here is a list of birthday cakes that are fun, simple, and even delicious.
These are simply homemade cake pops made with some of the best food coloring you can find. All you have to do is bake a cake and eat it, then using a small ice cream scoop, put little balls of cake onto a plate. Put them into the freezer for about five minutes so they can form together, then dip them into melted chocolate or candy coating, taking off excess chocolate with a spoon. Line the plate with wax paper and set the pops in a cool place to harden. They can be placed into candy molds or wrapped in cellophane bags.
“Chocolate Cake” Trifles
This is a fun cake that is much less complicated than it seems. If you have used or even purchased one of those little plastic cups for mixing drinks, then you will have what you need for your trifle. Line the bottom of your mixing cup with a layer of cake, then add a layer of whipped cream and cover with more cake. Cover the top with a layer of chocolate pudding, then carefully top that with another layer of cake. Finish by covering in whipping cream and vanilla ice cream.
Homemade Marshmallow Cake
This is an easy recipe that will not leave you feeling deprived when eaten on your birthday. Use two boxes of instant pudding and three packages vanilla marshmallows along with some milk. Mix all the ingredients together, then pour into the mold or pan you plan to use to hold it when frozen. Once frozen, take out and “slice” into pieces using a small serrated knife.
