Birthday Cake Round-Up: To Infinity and Beyond!

Don’t you just love birthday cakes?! My first “fun” birthday cake was a Big Mac. Really, it was. I was a spoiled only child for several years and somewhere in that time period, I got a special birthday party at McDonalds, complete with a hamburger shaped cake. Too cool. After that, it was hit and miss on the birthday cakes. Probably because we never thought to dress up a plain cake with frosting, candy, and toys.

It’s by far the simplest way to make a themed cake. And my contribution today’s Birthday Cake Round-Up is no different. I just have the most success decorating cakes this way. Ya gotta go with your strengths, ya know?

Tomorrow Toy Story 3 opens in theaters so I thought it was perfect timing to make a Toy Story cake, featuring Buzz Lightyear [5]. He’s one of our favorites. However, much to my chagrin, my 6 year old thinks his name is “Buzz Light.” Thank you, Football Season and Anheuser-Busch!


This was a very fun and easy cake to make, one that you could replicate in a snap [5]. Check out the tutorial [5] for simple directions.

But, there’s no limit to fun birthday cakes that your kids will love.

Check out these great cakes from LifeasMOM readers.
