Betty Crocker has gotten a major makeover since you were a regular on the petite party circuit. These days, sheet cakes and boxed baked goods have taken a backseat to the hottest movie heroes, and faraway fantasy lands. Even if you aren’t in cahoots with the Cake Boss, flipping through our gallery of amazing confectionary creations may just inspire you to start your own party planning.

Cookie Monster Cake

How cute is this cake? The spitting image of Cookie himself, it’s the mouthful of chocolate chip cookies that gets us giggling. It’s also easy to make one of your own, if you plan on having a Sesame Street themed party this year. Head over to Great Food Fun Places for the how-to.

“Like” this story if you’re totally impressed by these amazing birthday cakes.
