Birthday Cakes for Kids

Here are our top picks for kids cakes this year.

Kids birthdays are big events in their lives, every year we want to make sure their birthday is one to remember. Even on their first birthday we want to make it a momentous day. One of the main focuses for a child’s birthday is their birthday cake, so you’ll want to make sure that you choose one that you know they’ll love.

There are often popular trends on cakes, sometimes you’ll want a more elaborate themed cakes (but these can become very expensive), other times it’s more appropriate to just have a cake with a simple design that is just delicious.

We have a wonderful range of delicious cakes that are perfect for a child’s birthday, most are simple, yet beautiful, in design and are available in a variety of flavours. We know most kids have a sweet tooth, so the cake is arguably one of the most important parts of the party. If you’re looking for a smash cake for a first or second birthday then our cakes are ideal for that too! Here are some of our top picks for a kid’s birthday:

Rainbow Cake by Sponge


Rainbow Cake – Who doesn’t love a rainbow-themed party? This cake is bright and vibrant and it will really make them go ‘wow!’ on their special day. Our colourful rainbow cake is made up of four layers of light and fluffy vanilla sponge with three layers of deliciously sweet vanilla buttercream sandwiched between. Vanilla buttercream also covers the entire cake and it is then coated very generously in a cloud of white chocolate flakes. Due to the number of layers, buttercream and coating it is very generous and will easily feed more than 8 people!

Rocky Road Cake



Rocky Road Cake - A rocky road cake with naturally flavoured vanilla sponge and delicious chocolate sponge are swirled together creating an indulgent marbled sponge. English butter and chocolate create a smooth buttercream, with marshmallows and crispy chocolate pearls on top. This is a fun cake for a boy’s birthday party or a girl’s birthday party.

Cookies & Cream Cake

Cookies and Cream Cake – These yummy cookies and cream cakes are perfect for any cookie lover. Our chocolate sponge contains flour, free-range eggs, and indulgent chocolate. English butter and natural vanilla flavouring make a wonderfully thick and creamy buttercream icing with delicious crushed Oreo's running through it.

Victoria Sponge Cake



Victoria Sponge – If you’re looking to create a special cake but aren’t a fan of baking or simply don’t have the time to bake and decorate, why not pick a Victoria Sponge? You could leave it as a naked cake or you can decorate it yourself! Free-range eggs, flour and natural vanilla flavouring create our award-winning light and fluffy Victoria Sponge. The buttercream is made from English butter and natural vanilla flavouring which is complemented perfectly with quality raspberry jam. And it’s available in gluten-free.

These are just a few of our favourites to give you ideas for your child’s birthday cake. We have many more standard flavours. And if you require a gluten free or vegan cake to suit dietary requirements, we do those too!
