Sleep Cake

Loaf pan with frosted cookies for trees. Everything made from frosting. Bendable wire ribbon for lawn mower handle.


Best part is the 3D whiskers made from inserting spaghetti noodles into bag with round tip and slowly squeezing out. Let dry and insert into cake. Cool effect.


Thankfully you can decorate the dress however you'd like. This one didn't quite turn out the way I'd imagined but my 4 year old didn't mind. Don't forget to add your crown.

"Fancy Nancy"

Super simple tiered cake. Add ribbon around edges and coordinating flowers (real or artificial). Same idea could be used for wedding or shower.

Rock Star

Goat or Unicorn : )

Wilton 3D Lamb pan used. Frosted ice cream cones for the horns. (We couldn't decide if we liked the goat or unicorn better.)

Art Party w/Cupcakes

I'm putting this with the alternative to cakes just for those who don't want to spend the time decorating. Let your guests decorate their own cupcakes with frosting and candies. This was such a fun activity for everyone and went perfectly with our Art Themed party.
Plus, it was my daughter's favorite cake ever (she was so proud)!

Lightning McQueen

"Cars" Lightning McQueen . Larger cake made with Wilton 3D Cruiser pan. Chocolate donuts added for the wheels and frosting used to build up the spoiler.
Smaller cake is where the alternative to traditional cake comes in. Because the only grain my son could eat was corn, I baked a sweet corn bread and dairy-free frosting to built a car shape (I imagine this would work with any bread type). Was a bit crumbly, but no two year old with his own car cake is going to complain! : )
