Shark Birthday Party Ideas
Would your child like a Shark Birthday Party? Do you need some shark birthday cake ideas?
Perhaps they will become a marine biologist in the future. Marine biology is the study of marine life, and some people who work in this field study sharks. There is a lot of mystery surrounding sharks, and that makes them all the more interesting...don't you think?
Well, there are lots of party supplies for sharks, as we can see from that picture. Shark party invitations and tattoos are a perfect way to start off your party plans.
Shark Party Decorations and Supplies
You can use plain black or gray party products for your party, in fact you can use red or bright blue...any color you like. I didn't find any with a shark pattern on it. There is also an Ocean Life design party supply set. You might like them. They have lots of sea life on them.
You can hang up some shark pictures and posters, or coloring pages. You can see a few cute favor and decoration ideas in the pictures on this page. Hopefully you will find some things you like. The big Mylar balloons are pretty sharp. If your child likes sharks...I know he or she will like them.!
Shark Cake Ideas
Every birthday party needs cupcakes or a cake, and when you are using Shark Birthday party ideas...you want a shark on it. It's easy to bake your own cake, frost it and use a cake topper kit, an edible image or some fun candles to decorate the top. I didn't find a topper for a shark cake, though you can get an edible cake image to put on it.
What I did find was someone else who made a shark cake and here's how to make a Shark Cake! Just follow this link to the Shark cake.
Shark Birthday Cake
If you are using Shark birthday party ideas this unique shark birthday cake is perfect for you. This birthday cake was made with a square cake and a pound cake cut into four pieces. The pound cake was put around the sides of the square cake and frosted in a sea blue icing. The middle of this large square was colored with blue jelly...you can also use darker blue icing. Then plastic sea animals and toys...in this case, a shark, were put on top. It's easy and fun to make your own birthday cake...and the kids just love how creative their moms can be. The Mom who made the shark cake picture also wrote "Beware Of Sharks" along the side of the cake.
Another idea for an ocean cake is a rectangular cake with blue icing on 3/4's of the cake and some crushed up vanilla wafers along the last 1/3rd...that's the sand on the beach. You can add a surf board cupcake topper and a palm tree on the sand for a little realism and then put some gummy sharks...like the ones pictured on this page, in the water...there's your shark birthday cake!

design. It is a unique cake design that is easy to make.
