Birthday cakes are supposed to be fun. From the cake to the icing and the decorations that adorn the cake, the more fun and creative the cake is, the more people will remember it later.
Sometimes, the most creative thing you can do is to make a cake that is different in design or style. A flat birthday cake is common, so why not try something new and make a cake in the shape of the birthday recipient? Sculpting cake is an art form, but a good cake artist can make just about anything you want them to if you give them enough time to do it.
A sheet cake can still be very original since the decorations or the sculpting of the cake make it that way. There are so many things you can do with cake but try to think outside the box and make the cake fit the personality of the person you are preparing it for to get more of a reaction from them.
Candles and Decorations
Adding some fun decorations for a birthday cake can make the cake stand out. Remember that not all decorations need to be cake decorations. You can use anything you want on the cake if it fits the design of the cake. Candles are always fun, and for many people, candles that relight or simply will not go out are fun. How about adding some edible birthday cake candles to the cake?
The edible candles are made from chocolate and other edible products, and instead of throwing away the candles that melted all over the cake, you just pull the wick out and eat the chocolate candle. Some of these edible candles use organic hemp wicks that can be consumed as well. Just make sure you let the wick cool off before you try and eat it.
Special Cake Flavors
A unique flavor of cake can be enough to make it special. If you are making or buying a cake for someone that has unique tastes, a cake that caters to that might be a fun option. If you are buying the cake from a cake shop, they may have some ideas that you can explore as well. Talk to the people at the shop about what they have done in the past and what new ideas they might have for your cake order.
If you are still not sure what you want to do, take to the internet and search for birthday cakes on your favorite search engine. You might be surprised by the cake designs that will come up and the ideas that may inspire.
