First time, or beginner bakers usually have difficulty in choosing the right birthday cake pans that fits with the party. Where do you start?

THE number one tip I give first time bakers to help them decide on the birthday cake pan shape is to decide on the theme of the party. But, how do you figure out the theme?

For those who want to know how to decide on a theme, and help you choose the shape of the birthday cake pans, here are some tips that will help you:

1. What TV shows or movies does your child like to watch?

By knowing what television programs or movies they enjoy, you can easily decide on the theme of the party, which will make it easy to choose a birthday cake pan. If they like Sponge Bob Square Pants, then there’s your theme. The same goes any of the various other cartoon shows out there, or Sesame Street, or any other children’s show.

I’ll give you an example. I have a niece that’s grown up now. But, when she was little, she really loved the Little Mermaid. She stayed with us one summer and I remember watching that movie about 100 times. I think I memorized every song. Anyhow, it would have been easy choosing a theme for her birthday party.

2. What sports or games does your child like to play?

These days, most kids are involved in one sport or another. This is a great opportunity for you to be able to choose a birthday cake pan.

For example, do they play Little League baseball, Pop Warner Football, Tee Ball? What about soccer? Some kids even like doing karate or tae kwon do.

Find out what your child enjoys playing, and this will help you choose the birthday cake pan’s shape that matches a sports theme.

3. What books does your child like to read?

Knowing this will help you choose a birthday cake pan. All you have to do is think about what books your child likes for you to read them.

If your child, or children, are old enough to read on their own, then what are their favorite books? Do they prefer a certain genre like mystery, science fiction, or fantasy? By knowing the types of books they like, this is another way to choose a birthday cake pan.

Once you know what your child enjoys, you can decide on the perfect theme. And, once you have a theme, you can choose birthday cake pans in a shape that fits that theme. The key is knowing your children, and no one knows them better than you.
