The birthday cake is the main event at a kids birthday party and it’s what the birthday girl or boy looks forward to the most – maybe apart from the pressies! There’s a bit of pressure coming up with the perfect cake and lets face it, not all of us have the energy or the gift of the bake. So if you’re a little challenged in the kitchen, before you go dusting off the Women’s Weekly Celebration cake book for another #bakefail – why not let the pros take care of it for you?  From specialty cakes and cupcakes to cake toppers and DIY themed cake kits, there’s birthday cake options for everyone. And if you’re after something non cakey for your next kids birthday party there are some cake alternatives below too. Donuts anyone……

The Happy Hive Cakes

If you are looking for a birthday cake, cupcakes, celebration cake or just anything delicious, get in touch with Susie from The Happy Hive at Woodcroft. These are cakes baked with passion, love, enthusiasm and talent – Susie recently made a cake for Miss 7’s Unicorn Party. The brief was pretty basic (“she loves purple and rainbows”) and the result was STUNNING!

Not only was it stunning, it was delicious – when I say that these cakes are made with love, I mean it! Susie uses tried and tested family recipes and spends time making test cakes to get everything just right. Our lemon cake was delicious, everyone enjoyed it from the 3 year old, right up to the 88 year old at the party!

Susie at The Happy Hive doesn’t only do cakes either – nope, this woman is a super talented star who does baking, flower arrangements, handmade cards, decorations and even sewing. Amazing!

Get in touch for your next celebration and experience one of Susie’s masterpieces for yourself
