birthday cake designs

Does someone in your life have a big number coming up? Are you looking for the perfect piece of confectionery to make your loved one’s day extra special?

First of all, before you start baking your birthday cake, you need to ask yourself: What does my recipient like? That is, who is your guest of honor and what are their interests? Is it a child’s birthday? So maybe you’d like a cake decorated like a race car! Is it a business colleague’s party? How about a work related cake? All of these ideas boil down to one simple point: make a cake based on the subject’s hobbies or interests.

Let’s make a comparison: I have a two-year-old boy with a birthday coming up, and I need to make a cake for this young man. He had intended to make a cake based on a popular cartoon character, but it ended up being a bad idea. The reason was that this character was for children of a much higher age group. As such, my subject was neither interested nor cared about this popular character. Instead, I found out what the child was really interested in and based a cake design on that interest. The subsequent result was a cake design that everyone at the party loved, including the parents of the child!

The above story is just one example of how one should take into account the personality of the subject. If you can make a beautiful cake that suits the tastes of your subject, you can create a cake that will leave an everlasting impression on everyone that will never be forgotten.

Teddy Bear – For one-year-old babies, sixteen-year-old girls, or aging parents, a teddy bear cake is a great birthday idea for a loved one. He is sentimental and affectionate. It is best made for someone with a warm personality.

Action Toy Cake – This cake is a great design idea for kids between the ages of five and eleven. Action heroes are a popular theme for kids this age, and designing a cake to match this interest is a great idea. If you’re not sure what your little one likes, just look at what he sees on Saturday morning.

Sports Cake – This is a great idea for almost any man in life, whether he is five or one hundred and five. Sports design birthday cakes are very popular among boys and men. These are often easy to make and go great with season tickets as birthday gifts!

Job or Career Cake: Another great idea for the person with an unusual job or career. This is a great idea for dad or even the boss at work. This idea has only two drawbacks: 1) You can only use it once every long time, and 2) Don’t present this cake if the subject’s profession isn’t going well.

Holiday Theme: If your subject’s birthday falls on or near a famous holiday, you can design your cake for that holiday. Halloween is always a popular time, just like Christmas and Valentine’s Day. You can even plan a party around the holidays and call it a birthday party as well.
