Great suggestions! Another one is to avoid any additives, like artificial colors, flavors and preservatives.

When it comes to decorating childrens birthday cakes dont use chemical food colorings. The colors are unnatural and harmful. My trick for adding colour to icing on cakes is to sieve out juice from a handful of frozen rasberries. Make up the icing with butter and icing sugar as usual, then drop in the raspberry juice. It gives a wonderful pink color and delicious raspberry flavor. Then decorate with quality chocolate.

If the boys don't want a pink cake :) use the juice from passionfruits for a yellow colour and tangy passionfruit taste.

Chemical additives are best avoided, especially for children who due to their smaller size react to food coloring more extremely in their health and behaviour.
