New Ideas for Birthday Cake Pans

Get creative with your Birthday Cake Pans!

The centerpiece of any modern birthday party isn’t the birthday boy or girl. It is, of course, the birthday cake!

This is why you want to have a great cake for your kid’s next big bash.

Instead of buying a generic cake with “Happy Birthday” scrawled across it, why not try making your own original, interesting birthday cake?

Cake baking companies make it easy with birthday cake pans in many different shapes and sizes.

You can get regular shaped pans, 3-D pans, and even licensed character pans for the kid who really loves Winnie the Pooh, Dora the Explorer, or other characters.

Regular shaped pans are the easiest to work with. They can also be the best because you can normally use them for more than one occasion.

You could try your hand at a layer cake using traditional round pans.

Decorate the top and sides of the cake for a new, unique look.

You can also use heart shaped pans or star shaped pans for an easy way to give a birthday cake some personality. These types of pans aren’t strictly birthday cake pans, which makes them even simpler to use for everyday cakes, as well.

Another option is to use a 3-D pan. This can get a little more complicated, but if you follow the directions, you’ll be just fine.

This is a deep pan that’s sculpted into a backwards sort of carving. The deepest portions of the pan will be the highest portions of the 3-D figure when you get done and vise versa.

You can get dimensional pans in all sorts of shapes, from cars to butterflies to animals.

There are even some really cool 3-D cake pans that come with two parts. These pans end up being completely round balls or eggs, teddy bears that stand up, and princesses whose full skirts make them seem to float through the air.

These pans are even more complex to work with, so don’t try them until you have some real cake baking experience.

They’re a little more expensive, but they end up making a cake that will really be the memorable piece of your child’s birthday party.

Licensed character pans can be fun for a themed birthday party. Why settle for having Winnie the Pooh napkins, plates, and hats when you can also have a cake shaped like Pooh?

You can also get characters like Hello Kitty!, Spongebob Squarepants, Disney characters, and Dora the Explorer.

Pretty much any character that is popular enough to have a party set is also popular enough to have a specialized cake pan.

It can be tricky to decorate these cakes to look like the characters, but the baking part is simple with the specially made pans.

If you’re really looking for a way to make your child’s next birthday memorable, look to birthday cake pans to solve your dilemma.
