Choosing the right birthday cake for someone can be tough. Each of us have different likes when it comes to both the design and flavour of a cake. Think about all of the different designs you have seen over the years at birthday parties. Very rarely will you have two cakes the same. When you are in charge of deciding the cake it can be daunting. Use these five tips to help you succeed every single time:

1.      Birthday Cake Unique Design

You want the birthday boy or girls’ cake to be a memorable one. The best way to achieve this is through a unique design. Focus on all the minor details – style, colour, decorations, theme and more. Think about the particular persons interests and personality, the most important thing is that the cake is special to them. Don’t leave the cake until the last minute as you might end up with a boring, generic cake.

2.      Think About the Guests

While the most important person is always the guest of honour, you should also be considering your guests. Think about their likes and dislikes, if anyone has any special dietary requirements etc. If it is a family party then it will be much easier to know what everyone likes. If you aren’t sure who some of the guests are then reach out to them and ask if they have any special requests when it comes to the cake.

3.      Keep the Theme in Mind

Themed birthday parties are always a great time. If you have decided on a theme for the party then you need to keep that in mind when it comes to the birthday cake. You don’t want to have a cake that sticks out like a sore thumb. The cake should fit in with the theme of the party. If you are having a superhero themed party, then get a superhero themed cake.

4.      Don’t Get Complicated

We’ve all seen the amazing, sophisticated designs on the Great British Bake Off. While they are great, it can often be too complex and won’t work a lot of the time. You should think of one idea for your cake and stick to your guns. It’s better to be safe than sorry. Think of three design concepts and then choose one of them to go along with.

5.      Get the Theme Right

There is so much choice out there when it comes to theme. However, while some might sound interesting in concept, that can often not be the reality. You need to carefully select the theme of the event and cake and make sure that you are keeping everyone in mind. It is important that there are no unhappy guests.
