Use those delicious Kit Kat cookies to create a birthday cake for kids of a different kind! You see it turned out as a wonderful Easter cake in this graphic, but the possibilities are endless for your next kids birthday party.

All you need are a boxed cake mix baked as two round layers and ready-made frosting and the cookies. Leah, who came up with this great idea, used 3 boxes of the snack sized Kit Kats. You can, of course, use cake and frosting that you make from scratch if that’s your thing. Just press the cookies into the frosting on the sides and finish off with the pretty bow, or not, depending on your planned decorations.

While the cookie sides is sufficient to give this cake a lovely and different look, it also creates a space for some imaginative decoration. The cookies give the cake top the feel of a tableau, just waiting for a scene like the easter eggs and grass you see in the graphic. Sure, you could do that without the cookies, but it just wouldn’t have the same impact as the cookie ‘frame’.

Within that frame, many things are possible. Matchbox cars and/or motorcycles with tiny black and white checked flags for your cars birthday cake- just stick them securely into the icing and move it about carefully. Polly Pockets would work too.

Get creative- this birthday cake gives you the frame for your fun ideas.
