Top the Cake
Let your imagination go wild when you plan the fire truck birthday cake. Add a ladder, a hose, and a tiny engine as your topper. Short on time? A clean toy can easily take the place of pride atop the highest layer.

Crazy for Cupcakes
Save your sanity and purchase cupcakes from the store so that you can prep the rest of the party goodies. Top vanilla-on-vanilla cupcakes with bright red cherries and printable party decals featuring the stars of the show: a fire truck and your little one's age!

Firefighters need their veggies, too. Put celery and carrot sticks in grab-and-go cups with a dollop of Ranch dressing or hummus at the bottom. Remind kids that the carrots will help them see through the smoke should a real fire arise.

Just Add Candles
Make the birthday boy or girl feel extra special by adding a nameplate to the front of the cake. Keep it simple by using a pen with edible ink, found at most craft or hobby stores, to write the name.

When it comes to favors, toys can be your best friend. Gift each guest with a mini fire truck for them to play with on the ride home.
