    You can also use plastic figurines and after the party wash them off and the kids can play with them. I did that last year, bought a heap of little dinosaurs at Kmart (whole lot were $4) and stuck them on iced cupcakes. Voila!

    Not really a theme, just something girly and pretty! She is frozen and princess obsessed but I don't really want to do a commercialized one.

    So many good ideas here, it's actually inspiring me lol. I was thinking I would just buy a sponge cake and decorate it but now I'm thinking I might even try baking it! If I wanted like a slightly taller round cake do I just bake 2 and stick them together?

    Yep, just bake 2 cakes and put buttercream icing or ganache in the middle. My DD loves frozen too and gets excited when she sees anything with snow/ice/snow flakes. You could do pale blue icing with white snow flakes on top and a blue/silver ribbon

    I did a princess castle for Katie 1 yr. I bought a kit off eBay and did it. Was super easy and turned out amazing.

    If you check out cake toppers on eBay they have a huge array. I have bought Minnie Mouse and fairies. You just make your cake and place the topper on voila. Looks great and the kids have a new toy to play with.

    Check out the women's weekly cheats cake book. It is a new one out a few months ago. Lots of super easy ideas.

    I love decorating with fondant myself but it's really time consuming and I always say I'm gonna cheat next time!

    Im and amature cake designer/maker andd i always recommend the 'woman's weekly kids party cake' book.

    Go to your local library, they are bound to have a copy.

    Just as a thinking point...if anyone says your efforts to make your child's birthday cake are not positive tell them to go to h3ll!!! Remember the only person's opinion that matters is the BIRTHDAY CHILD!!! If your child looks at it and says 'wow, mummy thats 'such and such' or 'wow mummy' and smiles, it is a success!!! Anyone else can get stuffed!!!

    My parents used this book to death for my sister and I as kids.
    They brought out a new edition which was for sale at my works book club, I can't wait to start baking....first the kids need to arrive
