easy cakes to make

While planning my toddler’s birthday party, we Googled for B-cakes ideas.

I’m what you might call a “kitchen challanged”mom.

Usually I end up asking my sister-in-law to bake a cake for me…

This year I decided to give a fight:

My daughter and I googled endlessely, looking for the coolest easy cakes to make.

I was sure that the coolest cakes are NEVER easy

…well that turned to be a surprise.

I let my daughter chose a cake that she wants to bake herself, which turned to be a great idea.

She chose.

To bake them all!

One on each weekend…

These are the “chosen”:

1. Flower pots cake:

Let’s face it:

The  simplest recipe that you have will do:

Bake several sizes, put them one on top of the other and cover it with a chocolate cream and colored cake decorations.

It’s only the rainbow colors that matter.

Amazing, isn’t it?

 7. Ice cream cone cake:

This one is also an amazing idea (hey, did you hear me saying that before??)

This looks complicated

It’s actually only about decorating cupcakes (in this case they used confetti sprinkles, mini chocolate chips, & toffee bits for decorations), and placing them one on top of the other in the shape of an ice cream cone!

This great easy cake idea is from this blog.

This is my daughter’s choice for the kindergarten! A cake covered with marshmallows.
