when I turned 13-I did a skating party-we rented the rink for a few hours and had a blast. It all depends on what the child likes really.

Depends what she likes. What kind of things is she into

Do you have a "Jump America" or anything similiar in your area? That is what my SD13 and her friends are really into.

My SD13 also loved this cake: http://birdonacake.blogspot.com/2012/02/rainbow-tie-dye-cake.html

I did the frosting plain white and she had no idea what the inside of the cake looked like until she cut into it. It was awesome!

We bought SD13 a trampoline for her birthday... she asked all year for one. :)

It doesn't sound feasible to do a suprise party. I would talk with her and have her involved in the party planning :)

A surprise party does sound a lil hard to plan. I'd aK her what she'd like to do

I hate my memory, I can't remember exactly what we did for 13 because that was a couple months after my husband left me and we divorced. However I do remember her gift. I bought her a Tiffany heart necklace. It was like $125 and well worth the surprise to get the little blue box and something she could always have to mark the occasion of turning 13.

Its a piece O cake to make (pun intended)

The main thing... be sure to use gel food coloring (Betty Crocker makes great ones that come in neon). They are much more vivid and fun!
