Forget plain chocolate birthday cake -- you'll definitely trick partygoers with this whopper of a funny birthday cake. At first glance, this ice cream cake looks like it came straight from a fast food restaurant. Take a bite, and you'll realize that the bun is made from a yellow cake mix, the burger is chocolate ice cream, and the basket of fries is filled with strips of pound cake.

See the Cheeseburger-Ice Cream Cake recipe.

Party guests will giggle when they see this too-cute octopus birthday cake made from a cake mix and creme-filled sponge cakes. Light blue frosting circles give the octopus tentacles, and he comes alive with eyes made from chocolate-covered mint candies.

Make the cake from scratch with our Buttery Yellow Citrus Cake recipe.

For winter birthday parties or snow lovers, this cake-turned-sledding hill is a funny birthday cake choice. Frosting-topped pretzel sticks look like pine trees atop a snowy blanket of coconut; bear-shape cookies slide down the cake on fruit-leather sleds.

See our Sledding Party Cake recipe.

Only scaredy-cats will shy away from this ice cream cake made to look like the Cheshire cat. This funny birthday cake, with a brownie base, chocolate ice cream, and chocolate cookie crumbs, is sure to make everyone smile. Press on two blue tortilla chips for the ears, use an orange gumball for the nose, and add green licorice twist whiskers. Make the cat's eyes with small pieces of fruit leather pressed onto white gumballs; a toothy smile with orange-and-yellow fondant is sure to elicit grins.
