"Creative cake ideas indeed!"

Welcome to the creative cake designs and ideas gallery. Listed on this page are general cake designs and decorating ideas that do not fit into any of my existing cake category (as you can see in the navigation bar on the left).

Each of this cakes were submitted by generous readers like you. If you too have a great and creative cake decorating idea, you are most welcome to submit your work of art here. Scroll down to the bottom of this page for the submission form. Alternatively, you can read the submission guidelines and use the submission form in the 'Submit A Cake' page.

There is no limit to the number of cake designs you wish to submit, but each submission must be accompanied by at least one picture of the cake and a description of how you made and decorated the cake. While I have previously accepted submission with very short description (less than 300 words), I no longer accept such submssions as I want the cake ideas on this website to be of good quality and of benefit to everyone.
