Cut out the alphabets for ‘happy birthday’ and tie those together with a string, your banner is ready. The best part is all of this material can be purchased through discount codes on stationeries.
Bake A Yummy Cake
Obviously, a birthday party calls for an ah-mazing cake, but every bakery charges an arm and a leg for fancy looking cakes. Now, what to do? You have to have an adorable cake, and you don’t have a budget. Worry not, trust your baking skills and set off preparing to make a cake yourself.
The easiest to bake are depression cakes. They were popular during the time of great depression; hence, they are extremely frugal and requires no dairy and no eggs. You can bake this cake in vanilla and chocolate both as per the liking of a birthday kid.
All you need to bake this great depression cake is:
• All-purpose flour 11/2 cup
• Baking soda 1 tsp
• White vinegar 1 tsp
• Sugar 1 cup
• Salt ½ tsp
• Vegetable oil 5 tbsp
• Pure vanilla extract 11/2 tsp
• Water 1 cup
Mix all the dry ingredients that are sugar, salt, baking soda, and all-purpose flour in an 8-inch baking pan of your choice of shape. Now make one large and two small depressions in the ingredients.
Pour vinegar in one of the small depression and pour vanilla into the other while filling the larger one with the vegetable oil. Next, pour the water over the entire mixture and mix it until it becomes smooth.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, bake the cake on the middle rack for 35 minutes at 350 degrees. Once, the cake is baked and cool top it with frostings and TADA! You have a cake for a party.
If your kiddo is a chocolate fan then, follow the same recipe by just adding 3 tbsp of unsweetened cocoa powder, add only 1 tsp of pure vanilla extract instead of 11/2 tsp.
Once you have baked the cake, it’s time to decorate it. A simple cake with frosting would be too dull for a birthday party. Use your discount voucher codes to get some candies and gummy bears. Use white frosting and stick the gummy bears all over the cake. It will be eye candy and children would love to have a bite. Use candies and inexpensive colourful sprinkles to make a statement cake. You can also use bunties.
Make The Party Interesting
You can use art and craft as entertainment. Use your discount voucher codes or go to a wholesaler for craft supplies. Buy in bulk and indulge the kids in creating masterpieces. You’ll be amazed when they will deny even to eat cake and ice cream because they will so entirely be immersed in creating art.
This also marks out the need for goodie bags because kids will take home what they have created as a memoir.
The children tend to remember the experience more than the presents they have received. They will remember how you make their birthday amazing and how much fun their friends had. Your efforts will surely be cherished by your little ones, and this is the biggest reward for any parent. When you plan and execute it all by yourself, there will be an air of love in the air till the party lasts and even after that.
