What cake to make for your five year olds birthday – Ideas for girls
The cake you create all depends on the theme of your party, whether you are opting for traditional victoria sponge or chocolate cake, the toppings and icing you choose provides the memorable wow factor. Seek inspiration with a special Mermaid Cake (see image below) or even a classic rainbow cake. We always find adding a pop of colour through icing, flavoring and extravagant toppings will create a huge surprise and point of difference with your cake.
What cake to make for your five year olds birthday – Ideas for boys
Again, this all depends on your theme but one of our most popular cakes is ‘Marcel The Monkey’, perfect for your little cheeky monkey. Following on the animal theme, a Safari themed cake is always a great hit with adults and children alike.
Here you can experiment with your icing, creating small lions, tigers and bears to top your classic birthday cake. Add another cheeky character with our Kung Fu Panda cake (image below) a popular cake for most 5 year old boys. We suggest here you follow your little one’s current obsession, and if they are in between or have too many to pick from – Peppa Pig is always a winner.
We hope this has helped spark up some ideas for your kitchen, the most important thing to remember is to experiment and have fun. If in doubt add as many toppings as possible, go big, go bold, for a birthday cake they will always remember! At Agnes we fully enjoy baking our cakes as much as we enjoy eating them too!
