Pastaprincess, I am so glad we were all able to help, even if it was just to instill some confidence in you for baking.
Here is a link
to a list of very cool and easy kid's cakes. My Mom actually made many of these for my when I was a kid and I loved them. I still remember each one fondly. You can start with a mix or a home made cake recipe. Let me know if you want easy recipes as I have a few that are in weight measures for you.
If you really do want to get into baking, I suggest you get a small kitchen scale. There are many different styles and sizes and you don't need an expensive or large one. You will never look back!
