Have a birthday party coming up for your child? The cake is always stressful - Do you make it? Do you hire someone? Does it need to be an over-the-top-theme? There's so many fun cakes you can make or buy but a cake bar lets the kids get in on the fun, making their own individual unique cakes and it's super easy to set up. A DIY cake bar that any kid will love!
Vanilla Boxed Cake Mix (You can make from scratch, but this is the easiest!)
Whipped Frosting Jar
Sprinkles & other toppings
Little Cups (I got these from the dollar store)
Step 1: Follow the directions on the cake box to make the cake batter.
Step 2: Divide the batter between 4 mason jars, filling only 1/3 full. Add your desired food coloring to each jar and stir until it's throughly mixed.
Step 3: Place the jars on a cookie sheet and bake according to the instructions. Since there's a smaller amount baking, the cooking time may vary so be sure to check with a toothpick 10-15 mins in.
Step 4: Allow cake to completely cool. Once cooled, placed the first color in the food processor and mix until it it's finely crumbled. Repeat with remaining colors.
Set up your cake bar. Allow the kids to layer the cake colors to their liking,
Add a dollop of icing to the top for them via a pastry bag or just a spoon. Then, let the kids top it off with their favorite toppings. They'll have as much fun making their individual cakes as they'll have eating it!
