Angel food cake is on our mind as we celebrate our birthday month. Made faithfully by my mom every May, it still remains my ultimate favorite. 

Treat a child to a custom cake all their own by thinking creatively outside the box. How to begin? Think like a child! That's right - throw out the conventional ideas and put your brain in kid-mode. Adjectives such as whimsical, colorful, fantastical, and entertaining all come to mind. Mix and match elements and ingredients, colors and themes to create your very own unique concoction. Don't strive for perfection, but add equal parts silliness and magic - the two secret ingredients of any birthday cake.

For some whimsical ideas, we highly recommend the Tell Love and Party blog, helmed by mother of two. Lot of fun DIY projects and party inspiration to get you started.
