We've whipped up more than 50 great cake puns for kids (or at least, puns you can explain to your kids), perfect for writing in a card, icing onto a birthday cake, or just cracking out in the kitchen.

We've covered all manner of cake related puns, including bakes, scones, pancakes, muffins, cheesecake, chocolate cake and birthday cakes. Did you know that the world record for the longest-ever cake was set in Kerala, India, in January 2020?
