My Kids Make Their Own Birthday Cakes

Works for Me Wednesday Meme

This is very helpful for me, because I don't have the pressure of having to make my kids' Birthday cakes every year. It also doubles for a learning activity.

I'm not quite sure how this tradition started, but my kids love making their own birthday cakes. Since we homeschool, I like it that cake decorating provides opportunities for - creativity, art, math skills, and baking
. The kids' favorite place to get cake decorating ideas is at the Family Fun Site. They provide instructions for how to decorate using: various candies, Twinkies, marshmallows, chocolate chips, fruit leather, mini donuts, licorice, etc.

Here are some photos from the site with all of the
cool ideas.

I love the Family Fun cake ideas as well. I just made the moon cake for my son's 4th birthday. What a fun tradition to have the kids bake their own cakes.
