Celebs' Kids' Birthday Cakes Look Just Like Ours. Or Not

Photograph by Instagram

Chris Hemsworth, aka: Thor, is a man of many talents. He can hurl his hammer, flex his muscles AND he can whip up a dinosaur shaped cake for his daughter's birthday. The action super star shared his creation on Instagram, as proud celebrity parents do.

Thing is, not all cake-baking celebrity parents are created equal. Some celebs hire gourmet bakers to get the job done. Others make admirable attempts. A few phone the whole thing in and pop a few candles in a pancake.

Here are 21 birthday cakes celebs presented to their kids, their moms and even themselves:

Chris Hemsworth


What happens when the bakery says they don't have time to make your daughter a birthday cake? You get involved and smash one out yourself ! I call it "La TRex al la chocolate"

Thor has a few hidden talents!

Liv Tyler

Liv had this gorgeous white unicorn cake made for her son, Sailor.

Drew Barrymore

Reese Witherspoon


The only cake for a golf loving kid. 🎂💚#golfer #12 #birthdaycake

Apparently, her 12-year-old son loves to golf! A sand trap never looked so tasty.

Busy Philipps


She asked for Thomas with Bubble Guppies as passengers. I threw in Curious George cause I figured he wouldn't want to be left out... I'll post more pics of the cake tomorrow. Right now, I just have to sleep. Caking is exhausting.

She gets bonus points for including so many characters in one cake.

I'm making Cricket a big cake next weekend for her party but Birdie made her this pink swirl delight for today that she frosted all by herself! I'm so proud of both my big girls!

Her daughter Birdie got into the fun and made her little sister a cake, too. Not as fancy as the last one, but just as charming.

Rachel Zoe

J-Lo surprised her twins with a Mickey Mouse encrusted cake, which makes sense since the crew was at Disneyland for the day.

Victoria Beckham


Fun dinner with my family last night celebrating my mums birthday!!Kisses to my brother and sister and @davidbeckham @brooklynbeckham (yes,my mum loves Koi carp!!) #familynightout X 🙏🏼❤️

Many a celeb shares the cakes they get for their kids, but not as many share what they got for their parents. Posh Spice did, and it's quite the catch!
