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.

The Giving Tree Cake

Nostalgic and heart-warming all at once, this cake is really the cake to end all cakes. We have a soft spot for the story of The Giving Tree— this would make a perfect birthday gift and party-hit for any kiddo or adult. We know if we had Shel Silverstein’s book in 3-D, it would look just like this.

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