Fun Ideas for a cake?!

Question: Fun Ideas for a cake!?
I'm visiting my cousins this week, a 7-year-old girl and a 3-year-old boy, and I'm going to make then a cake! But, I don't know what to put on it!. It's not for any special occasion, but I need an idea for a design, some words, or a picture to make out of cake

also, it can't be too complicated because I'm making it with icing, and i can only use two or three colors

It's going to be a 9"round cake, two layers

There were some cupcakes in a magazine I just got that you could adapt to the top of a cake: Put a few oreo cookies on top, and pipe some yellow petals around them (for sunflowers - you can even use the storebought frosting in the squirt can)!.!.!. They used some spearmint candy for leaves!.!.!.!. and red M&Ms, with a black/brown icing line down the back, and a few dots, for ladybugs!.!.!.!.!.!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Take a picture of both of them and cut it out!. Decorate around it!.!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

For my sons birthday I made a chocolate fudge cake and let the children decorate it them selves with an assortment of sweets - so they just covered it!. I did put a layer of fudge sauce all over so they'd stick!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

I saw this while looking through a cookbook for Jello one day, and it looked like a cute idea!. bake the cakes, put them together and cut out a rectangle through both layers!. Take that out, and eat it, throw it out, whatever!. You don't need them anymore!. Make some blue Jello, and when it is not all the way hardened, pour it into the rectangle of the cake!. Frost around it afterwards, and add some Teddy Grahams as people, put some Gummy Life Savers around them and tubes, and maybe stick some in the Jello so it makes them look like they are swimming! This doesn't look to complicated, and you will only need maybe one or two colors of frosting!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Turn your cake into a huge cupcake
ice around the side of the cake
Swirl the top with icing with a different colour then the side , Sprinkle the top of the cake with coloured sprinkles and then put five Cherry's in the middle
I made one for my son's 5th birthday and the kids couldn't believe there eyes it was soooo funny they said it was the biggest cup cake they had ever seen!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

A couple of weeks ago I was watching food network and Sandra Lee of Semi home made did a couple of fun cakes for kids!. I really liked the tie died cake she made!. She did the gel icing in a couple of different colors in straight lines going across the cake, then she took a tooth pick and dragged it through the colors in the opposite direction to make the colors run!. Between lines, she cleaned off the toothpick to keep it clean!. The other way was swirls, she did circles in the different colors and tooth the toothpick and swirled the colors around!. Here's the link if you prefer to read/ see it for yourself: http://www!.foodnetwork!.com/food/recipes/!.!.!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
