Planning out your kid's birthday party can be a challenging task. Not only do you need to curate the party to meet your child's preferences, but you'll need to be meticulous about it too! From the colourful decorations to the impressive cake, every single element of the party needs to highlight and complement your child's personality.


As with anything sweet, children adore cakes. In birthday parties, it's quite the norm for a parent to purchase a fun and showstopping cake that will wow their child and their friends. These cakes might resemble their child's favourite cartoon characters or even take on a 3D structure! If you wish to gift your child a birthday celebration they will never forget, here are a few birthday cake ideas worth noting.


  • 3-D Food Cakes
  • Animal Cakes
  • Cartoon Character Cakes
  • Hobby-Related Birthday Cakes


There's only one thing that's better than a 2D cake: a 3D one! These three-dimensional sculpted cakes can be customised to take the form of your child's favourite cartoon character, effectively raising their's and their friends' spirits during your child's birthday party.


These atypical cakes usually require the most skill level, time, expertise and planning – and it's little wonder why. These cakes are often semi-realistic looking, adding another dimension to the overall party.


Fondant is a blessing in disguise for most bakers due to its versatility. This edible icing not only can set the foundation of your cake's decoration, but it can also be used to add details to give birth to wild cake ideas, animal cakes included! Your child may have their favourite animal come life, in a cake form. Whether it'd be a cute version of the fierce Tyrannosaurus Rex, or the ever dreamy rainbow unicorn, they'll be so cute, your child will be gushing for days!


Every kid has their favourite cartoon character they're attached to. Make your child's day by customising their cake and feature their favourite character on it! There are a few ways you can get such cakes: either have its image printed on or opt for a fondant cake! Ultimately, the former will take less time to prepare than the latter; so you can still order a cake that'll bring a smile on your child's face even if you're rushing for time.


Interesting cakes don't have to limit themselves to a figure or a character, parents can also get cakes that are related to their beloved child's hobbies! Whether it'd be sports or art related, creating a tangible replication of their interest or pastime is sure to bring a smile on their faces. Not only will it be a one-of-a-kind cake, but it'll also help to reflect their personality, making it all the more special.


Choosing the centrepieces of your kid's birthday may not be a herculean task, but it's not that easy either. After all, you'll want to ensure that it marks one of the most memorable parts of the party, ensuring that the decadent dessert is tailored to the child, fits the theme and most importantly, is delicious too! Finding the right bakery is the first step into ticking all the boxes above.


At Polar Puffs & Cakes, we're here to help. With an extensive range of cakes selection to choose from, you and your child are bound to be spoilt for choice! In addition to the regular whole cakes, we also have 3D cakes and character cakes such as the tokidoki birthday cake and minion cake to tickle your child's fancy!
