Kids Birthday Party: DIY Cake Bar

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!

Kids Birthday Party: DIY Cake Bar Ingredients

Ingredients:

Vanilla Boxed Cake Mix (You can make from scratch, but this is the easiest!)

Whipped Frosting Jar

Food Coloring

Mason Jars

Food Processer

Icing Bag

Sprinkles & other toppings

Little Cups (I got these from the dollar store)

 

Directions:

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.

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!
