We love creative birthday cakes, but quite often we look at them and think, "We could never make that." You might remember a previous post on 31 cakes from Parenting magazine that detail each bit of candy used to make recreating it at home a snap. well, they're back with 30 new designs that make us smile. There's owls, planes and even bugs under a magnifying glass!

We featured 10 of our favorite cakes above, though the full 30 is for sure worth a glance at. Most utilize candies found at your local grocery or drug store to make a basic cake look like you spent all afternoon handcrafting bits and pieces.

Would you ever think to roll out Tootsie rolls to use them as a windshield? What about cutting a marshmallow in half for a pig's snout? Click on over to see all the tricks of the trade and make a mental note as to which ideas you might be able to borrow for your next birthday bash!
