I ordered a store bought birthday cake for my son's 9th Birthday this Saturday. I always make their cakes, but I saw this Wall-E cake at the grocery store that I know he would just love. He does not know about it yet. It is going to be a surprise too. My daughters birthday is in 2 weeks too. I hope I am not stuck ordering a cake for her now too. What would your kids want on their cake? Any special characters?

Well, she is only going to be turning 2. Maybe she won't notice.

My daughter is 4 and she talks just about every day what she wants her birthday party to be....but her birthday is not til July :). Right now she is stuck on Tinker Bell or Hannah Montana but I know it will change again soon. I really enjoy making my kid's cakes like you. But for characters like that you almost have to order it or buy a toy to place on the top of the cake. My biggest adventure so far was making a dinosaur shapped cake for my son's 1st birthday. It turned out really great. Good Luck and Happy Birthday to your 2 kiddos!!

My daughter has been pointing out things with Hannah Montana on them the last few days. She points to them and says Montana. Not that she wants it, just that she knows who it is. It is funny.

My kids plan for weeks what they want their cakes to be and because I make cakes I have to stand up to the challenge I think they would know If I simply went out and bought one but I agree sometimes it is so much easier to do that!

I hope he enjoys the cake. It will be a good surprise. My daughter had a Little Mermaid cake. And a Finding Nemo cake. I buy her cakes. My sis in law is the baker. And knowing a little something about your daughter, she will notice! I believe a Dora figure on a home baked cake may fit the bill.

Wiggle's Birthday Cake - My Son's Wiggle's Birthday Cake
Oh, I know your son will love it! For my son's birthday in November I ordered him a Wiggles birthday cake. He loves the Wiggles. For my daughter last week, we just got a small puppy dog cake that I let her pick out.
