BIRTHDAY PARTY CAKES
Who doesn't love birthday cakes? Whether it's for party, large
or small, or the birthday celebration of a friend or family member a birthday cake is in order and will forever be
remembered and appreciated. Yes, there can be gifts, however, for many children the birthday cake is what
birthday's are all about. And if the cake has candles? Oh what a special moment as the child blows them
Cutting the birthday cake is a special moment for so many birthday
celebrating children. Therefore, it is worth putting time in planning the birthday cake. And, it
doesn't necessarily mean one has to spend a lot of time in this planning process.
As important as taste, the shape, color, size and decorations of the
birthday cake all need to be taken into consideration. It is always better if we could design the
birthday cake, or it's decoration and frosting, in cartoon characters or some favorite play toy (i.e., cars,
trucks, colorful balls, etc.) that are familiar to the children. Such theme or toy ideas could be Pirates,
Princesses, Cinderella Castle Cake, ice Cream Castle Cake, Pirate Cake, Pirate Ship Cake, Princess Cake,
Splendid Castle Cake, Treasure Chest Cake, Bowling Ball Cake, Bowling Lane Cake, Football Cake, Skateboard
Cake, Wings, Train Cake, Dump Truck Cake, Fire Engine Cake, Outback Jeep Cake, Racetrack Cake, School Bus
Cake, Space Cake, Football Cake, Basketball Cake, Car Cakes, Pickup Truck Cakes or a very simple
Colorful Call Birthday Cake shape or frosting design.
If the birthday cake design is different, meaningful, the kids,
children and adults will appreciate it. Here are a few design ideas for your next birthday cake
for older teens and adults: Apron Cake, Artist's Palette Cake, Boom Box Cake, Checkers Cake, Chinese Checkers
Cake, Domino Cake, Groovy T-shirt Cake, Pizza Cake, Private Eye Cake, Remote Control Cake, Smiley Face Cake,
Teeny Tiny Cake, Tub Cake, upside-Down
Cake, or a Volcano Cake.
All birthday cake decorations are generally done to the top and sides
of the cake. The table on which the birthday cake is placed also should be decorated suitably.
