With all of the birthday parties at home right now, I thought it’d be fun to share a birthday themed game that you can play as a family right at home!
Or one that you could send to friends and play together virtually.
Or if you don’t want to race, you simply roll the dice and try to finish your cupcake.
And don’t forget to provide some real cupcakes for people to enjoy after they play!

For everyone playing this game, you’ll need to provide:

How to Play Roll A Cupcake
You can either play in this in an everyone wins, just have fun, type game or you can play this in a bit more competitive way. Choose your option based on who is playing – the older the kids, the more likely they’ll do better with a little competition.
1 – Everyone win rules
When you say go, everyone rolls their die. If they roll a 1 or a 6, they can put their cupcake wrapper onto the page. If they don’t roll a 1 or 6, they need to continue rolling until they do.
Once they roll a 1, they then continue rolling trying to get a 2 or 6 to place their cupcake flavor on top of the wrapper.
Continue rolling until they’ve rolled the numbers 1 through 5 in order and decorated their cupcake with the dice.
Here are the numbers and their associated items that are included in the printable.
- Cupcake wrapper
- Topping – this could be a candle, fruit, something else that’s left
- Player’s choice
You’ll notice that the 6 is “player’s choice,” which basically means wild – they can choose the next cupcake piece in order instead of having to roll the exact number.
2 – Fastest win rules
For this version of the game, you’ll do basically the same thing. The one difference is that it’s the person who completes their cupcakes the quickest that wins, kind of like in this roll a rainbow game.
To do this, you can either have people roll their die one at a time and everyone sees what other people roll – this definitely can extend the playing time.
Or you can have everyone roll at once but just one roll at a time and then pause until everyone has completed that round’s roll.
Or you can just have people go as fast as they can, rolling like crazy, until they complete their cupcake.
