Child’s Birthday

cat cakeAs a savvy auntie and godmother, I’ve got plenty of ideas. Cupcakes are an easy solution for a child’s party, requiring no plates or forks, but sheet cakes also work well because they can feed a crowd.

Some favorites include:

Bird’s Nest Cupcakes – great for a nature-themed party

Buttermilk Chocolate Sheet Cake – feeds a crowd

Cat Cake – pictured at left, a big hit at my goddaughter Maureen’s fifth birthday party

Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Buttercream

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes

Color Swirl Cupcakes

Crazy Chocolate Cupcakes – they’re vegan – and they make a large batch

Hot Pink Cupcakes with Raspberry Filling

Orange Cream Mini Cupcakes

Owl Cupcakes

Planet Cupcakes

Pumpkin Patch Cupcakes (good for a fall or non-scary Halloween party)

mo bakingHere, I’m baking with my goddaughter Maureen. Mo was four in this photo; she’s almost 6 now! Mo lives in Maryland with her mom Barb, dad Robb, little sister Margo, and dog Sukey. She’s a fiesty lass, and I hope she stays that way.
