13 Kids’ Birthday Cake Ideas Adults Will Love Too
Birthday cakes are a pretty big deal for kids. They end up in every photo album, and we all totally remember our epic cakes from years past. As a parent, relative or designated birthday cake provider, it can be a lot of pressure to deliver an impressive cake that both the kids and adults will love. You need to whip up something that’s #adorable and totally perfect for the theme. Enter the cute, colorful and creative birthday cakes below. If your kiddo is turning another year older soon (how does time go by so fast?!), these cakes will keep your celebratory dessert game strong.
6. Oh Happy Day Happy Balloon Pop Kits ($14+): Not to reinvent the wheel or anything, but… who needs to blow out candles when you can make a wish and pop these bad boys instead? If you’re running low on shipping time, DIY a few of your own with balloons and paper straws from the party store.
9. Oh Happy Day Lollipop Candles ($13): What’s a birthday cake without the biggest, most colorful candles to blow out? Just in case your guests get super excited for lollipops, pass out real ones as favors to bring home after the party.
Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
