No birthday party
is complete without a birthday cake. The next time you celebrate
a birthday for a friend or family member; don’t pick the first
cake that you see. Spend a little bit of time thinking about the
type of birthday
that they would enjoy. A specially picked out birthday
cake shows them that you care.
First you need to decide what theme you want for your
birthday cake. Kid’s birthday cakes are perhaps the easiest
to pick out, because most children’s parties have themes.
Some kids prefer simple sweets
and desserts. This may be their favorite cartoon character,
or hobby. Just be creative when picking out your birthday cake.
Perhaps your little one would like an Elmo birthday cake, or maybe
a princess birthday cake, or even a dog birthday cake. One particularly
fun child’s birthday cake is one that has his/her face on
it. The way food
looks is important to kids. Younger children will get a kick out
of such a creative cake.
If you are planning for an adult chocolate
birthday cake and torts, try to think of a hobby or place that
they hold particularly dear. I have seen hunting birthday cakes,
sweet chocolate cakes
golfing cakes, beach themed cakes, and much more. The more you know
about the person, the easier it will be to pick out their dessert.
If the birthday person is feeling old, you may brighten their day
by picking a theme from their childhood. Star Wars birthday cakes
are very popular these days. Just be creative and have fun!
If you like to bake,
you should have no trouble finding
birthday cake recipes to fit your needs. You can go with a classic
chocolate or you can get creative and do an ice cream cake, or use
various fillings. Ask friends and family members what recipes they
like, and incorporate them into your own personal birthday cake
recipe. There are a wide assortment of cookbooks that are dedicated
to birthday cakes, so try to find one to use for ideas and recipes.
When in doubt try to do a search online for birthday cakes, you
should be able to find lots of birthday cake pictures, recipes,
Remember birthday's are suppose to be fun days. Order
or make a cake that everyone will enjoy!
