WHOLE, HALF, QUARTER: Count the pieces it takes to make one "whole" cake layer. Slice the cake down the middle and count the number of pieces in each "half." Cut each half down the middle and count the number of pieces in each "quarter."
MAKE A WISH: Pretend it's your birthday and you get to make a wish on your birthday cake candle . . . and your wish comes true! Act out or draw a picture of your wish coming true.
MEMORY GAME: Turn the topping pieces facedown on a flat surface and mix them up. Players take turns flipping over two pieces at a time. If the pictures on the pieces match, the player keeps them; if not, turn them back over and the next player takes a turn. Play ends when all the pieces have been matched--whoever has the most matches wins!
BAKE SHOP: Pretend to be the owner of a bakery that specializes in party cakes! Fill orders for customers who order single layer, double layer, or triple layer cakes with different toppings. What are some of the occasions people are celebrating (wedding, anniversary, birthday, graduation, etc.)?
