Birthday Cake Alternatives

Cakes can be a great way to add to your theme of your birthday party. Some can be fancy and store bought. Some are homemade. There are a lot of really wonderful cake bakeries and homemade theme cake ideas. But what if your child doesn't like cake or in my son's case doesn't like icing. I know most kids prefer the icing to the cake...for those perhaps a tub of icing will suffice. Getting creative is something I enjoy doing so I came up with some other ideas to the traditional cake route.

Some creative cake alternatives:
Brownie Sundaes (popular with the chocolate fans)
Make your own Sundae (popular with the non-chocolate fans)
Ice Cream Floats
Rice crispy cut-outs (with or without icing or sprinkles)
Fruit Pizza
Your child's favorite dessert
Ice Cream popcicles
Fancy kid desserts
Cupcakes in a theme (keep a few not frosted)
Homemade Ice Cream (let the kids help make!)
Fruit Kabobs or candy kabobs (you can get creative with the sticks so they aren't too sharp for younger guests)
Have more ideas? Please share!
