5 easy – but really impressive – birthday cakes you can make at home

Got a party coming up in your house?

Trying to get used to this new normal isn’t easy,  particularly if you have kids that just want to see their friends, cousins and grandparents.

Things get even more complicated if your child has a birthday during lockdown and they don’t understand why they can’t have a party like they usually would.

While a large family gathering is out of the question, you can do something special for your little ones at home and baking a cake is a good place to start.

With that in mind, we have rounded up five seriously impressive birthday cakes you can literally whip up yourself, no bakery needed.

1. Doughnut Cake

So easy, extremely impressive nonetheless.
