This Red Mini Cooper Birthday Party is the perfect theme for a mini man who is this cars’ biggest fan because that’s what his dad drives! Sally of Pretty Little Events pulled out all the stops for her son’s racing celebration including mini racer in training lunch, gear shift knob cake pops, and a wooden car auto body & paint shop!

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Awesome Mini Cooper cake with European license plate that reads: 4 BDAY KALE
– Shift knob cake pops, “nuts & bolts”, spare tire swirly pops, & wheel cookies
– Mini Cooper post cards & temporary tattoos (free from their Mini dealer)!
– Auto Body & Paint Shop with ‘paint jobs’ on wooden cars

PARTY DETAILS, as told by Sally


For my son’s 4th birthday party, I wanted to create the ultimate red Mini Cooper themed birthday party. He is the hugest fan because that’s what his dad drives!!


I wanted his birthday cake to look like an European license plate. I submitted the design to my baker and they were able to match it perfectly. The plate read “Happy 4th Birthday Kale.” I topped it with his toy mini cooper car and a pair of racing flags. I used a cut-out of a mini cooper car with a party hat on top of it’s roof flanked with 2 cupcakes with party circles that read “Let’s Motor” to finish off the overall presentation. Other sweet treats included shift knob cake pops, “nuts & bolts”, spare tire swirly pops, and wheel cookies.


I set up an Auto Body & Paint Shop for kids to give their cars a “paint job.” I wrapped racing flags on the paint brushes, left out tire track stamps for kids to make “skid marks” from racing their cars, “Wish you were here” Mini Cooper post cards for them to write notes on and Mini Cooper temporary tattoos both of which I got for free from our Mini dealer.


The babies received bibs purchased from the Mini dealer that said “Mini” and personalized baby friendly foods with favor tags hung from baby spoons that read “mini racer in training.” I made red polos that said Mini with iron on letters.
