14 Ridiculous Birthday Cake Fails

Big P’s birthday is coming up — it’s in less then two weeks and the planning has begun. We won’t be throwing him any fancy extravagant birthday party this year but we will have a mini-party with close family.

Every year we let the kids pick what they want their cake like. One year we had a Lightning McQueen cake, another was a purple cake with flowers for Princess R and we’ve done the typical Elmo cake. This year I bet Big P’s choice will be another character-type cake and I am hoping, for my parents sake who make the cake, that it won’t be too complicated.

I know it’s the thought that counts when making a homemade cake and really, as long as it tastes good the way it look shouldn’t matter. But it does and sometimes it just looks all kinds of wrong.

Click through for 14 cakes you do not want to be the centerpiece of your kids birthday party:
