Birthday Cakes for Girls are a lot of fun to make and there are heaps of great ideas on what theme to use.  Of course, most girls like ‘pretty’ colours like pink, purple and pastel shades, but there are so many different options that it is always fun to try something new.

With so many ideas that it would be impossible to cover them all, but here are two tried and true themes that are based on age.  One is for younger girls, the other for older/teenager girls.

Animal Birthday Cakes for Girls

This is a great theme for little girls and can be based around their favourite animal – most little girls have at least one, if not many to choose from.  There are domestic animals (dog, cat, birds, fish), farm animals (ponies, horses, cows, pigs) and wild animals (monkeys, tigers, lions, elephants).

One great animal cake idea is a Panda Bear Cake and this video shows how to make it…

To make this cake you will need a 9 x 13 Inch Cake Pan and 2 x 8 Inch Round Cake Pans. The recipe and templates can be found by clicking here.  As they mention in the video this recipe can be adapted to any bear using different colours and features.

Fashion Birthday Cakes for Girls

Now we’re talking about the older girls who are likely to be fond of all things fashion – shoes, handbags, purses, jewellery and all sorts of accessories.  Here’s some ideas.

Most of the fashion cakes can be easily made using a Square Cake Pan and this Birthday Cake Recipe as the base.  The cake can then be iced and decorated as creatively and colourfully as desired.

That’s a few ideas to get things started on a special cake for your little girl.  If you have any ideas, questions or comments on Birthday Cakes for Girls, please leave them below.
