I'm making my neice a cake for her 3rd birthday party. It will be mainly kids at the party. I plan to make WASC using a yellow cake mix and frost it with a plain buttercream. Any filling suggestions that kids will enjoy?

I made Oreo cookie filling for her birthday last year so want something different than that.

I made a yellow cake for my daughter's 3rd birthday last week that had a layer of raspberry filling and two layers of chocolate filling. The guests at our party were both children and adults, and everyone loved the cake. I found the recipe for the raspberry filling on CC--it is the recipe from Merissa. The chocolate filling was made with heavy cream and chocolate pudding mix. I frosted the cake with a pink marshmallow-cream cheese frosting.

Not to contradict the PP, but I am making a cake today for my son's pre-k graduation. His teacher told me the kids don't really dig fruit filling, so I'm doing whipped chocolate ganache. (I wanted to do raspberry)

I find that kids arent really crazy about fruit fillings either. Try chocolate mousse/ganache, vanilla mousse, peanut butter, strawberry cream, chocolate chip mint. Those are a couple that go over really well for me with kids. Usually my chocolate BC or my chocolate ganache are the crowd pleasers.
