I love making cakes for kid parties because anything goes – candy decorations, sprinkles, fondant characters and more. Recently we wished a special little girl a happy 3rd birthday and because it was a pizza party, I had to make a pizza cake. These are so simple. All you need is a good yellow cake recipe (boxed cake mix is fine too) and some fun toppings. For this cake, I added yellow sanding sugar to the bottom of the cake to act as cornmeal and then the hubby decorated the top with strawberry jam marinara, shredded coconut cheese, candied pineapples, Fruit Roll-Ups pepperoni and grape fruit strip olives. Fun right?! If coconut is not up your alley, grated white chocolate makes a wonderful parmesan.
And I have to give a quick hurrah to my hubby. Your decorating was superb.
