A baked dessert gives you a plethora of opportunities to come up with new ideas that will leave everyone at the party talking about it for weeks and months to come. When you are throwing a party for children, you can experiment with flavours, decoration, and theme of the sweet dish more than if you are planning a gathering for an adult. Here are a few unique ideas that are a must-try.

Glow In The Dark Cake

If you are hosting a birthday party for your child in the evening, a glow-in-the-dark cake would be perfect. You have to start by baking a simple cake and cover it with black frosting. Use the white colour frosting to write a message on the top and decorate it with vibrant elements. Lastly, mix edible glow powder in lemon juice and apply the liquid to the cake using a brush. Before cutting the cake, turn off the lights, add some glow-in-the-dark candles on the top, and leave every child fascinated at the party.

Bouquet Of Cupcakes

You must have seen a bouquet of flowers, but a bouquet of cupcakes sounds unusual. However, if you think about adding colourful frostings and elements on the top, it could be an irresistible bouquet not only for children but also for adults attending the party. You can use edible flowers, colourful sticks, and other elements to decorate the cupcakes and arrange them in the shape of a bouquet. This will help eliminate the hassle of cutting and distributing slices of a cake.

Rainbow Cake

One of the easiest drawings that are taught to children in schools is of a rainbow. You can take the inspiration from it and bake a cake with vibrant hues. Cover the entire dessert with a frosting of chocolate or vanilla so that when you cut the cake, each slice will be a rainbow pastry that children would love to devour. You can decorate it with colourful gems and vibrant elements to make it appear pretty and Instagram-worthy.

Cake With A Hidden Surprise

If children at the party are not interested in treasure hunting around the house, you can hide sweet delights inside the cake. It could be chocolate, dried fruits, candies, and whatnot. You can even make a game out of it and add a prize for every treasure that children can find in their slices. This cake will be a forever hit at the party.

Candy Land Cake

Every child loves Candy Land. This is the perfect theme to decorate any dessert you are making for a birthday party. Whether it’s a cake or cupcakes, you can top them with small colourful candies like gummy bears, lollipops, and jellybeans. Every child at the party would be asking for a specific piece featuring their favourite candy or chocolate.
