For children, the birthday cake can be one of the most exciting highlights of their big day – or of any special occasion. Making a themed cake is a fun way to celebrate their interests throughout the year, and they can be so fun to look back on. I love to share themed kids cake decorating ideas with all of you, and today I’m sharing some gorgeous animal cakes that would be perfect for many animal themes, whether it’s a jungle theme, a farm theme, or just themed with a specific favourite animal like a dog or a monkey.
These cakes are all so cute! I hope you like them. Click through each link for a tutorial on how to make and decorate these cakes.
