When a friend made this candy basket cake for her daughter's birthday last year, I shared it on the Kids Parties facebook page
so other parents could be inspired to make one of their own. Then, when Easter came around, I made one myself, filled it with marshmallow chicks and called it an Easter basket cake
. Come to think of it, you could also fill one with items to make it look like anything from a beach pail to a trick-or-treat bucket.
And that's what's fun about sharing these creations; they can spark new ideas for parents who are looking for a cake or dessert complete their party theme.
There are so many creative folks out there who are making amazing cakes for their own kids parties and celebrations. If you are one of those crafty bakers who wants to share your cake, cupcake or dessert ideas to inspire others, please share it via this simple submission form
. We can't wait to see what you've made!

My family always celebrates Mother's Day
with a big celebration at the home of my mom, which is also the home of my grandmother. Currently, four generations gather to enjoy laughter, good food and family bonding. For the youngest of those generations, however, any gathering - whether it's for a holiday, birthday or no occasion at all - is always about the same thing: romping around and playing games with their cousins.
Since it is Mother's Day, I thought this year we could actually organize some of those games to include the moms. From outdoor relay races to indoor activities like Mommy Bingo, this collection of Mother's Day games
includes choices for everything from a small family celebration to a large family reunion. And best of all, Mom not only gets to play along, but she's also the theme of every one of the games.
How does your family celebrate Mother's Day? If you have any special traditions or activities that are part of your day, please comment and share them with us. We'd love to hear all about them!
