Birthday Bash Cake

This birthday bash cake idea was submitted by Julie M of Rochester, NY, USA.


Cake decorating tips by Julie:

My brother asked me to make a cake for one of his friends, and he said I could be creative with the design. I was delighted to hear that, and had fun with incorporating rainbow colors and balloons. The birthday inscription is on both sides of the cake, and each of the letters has a little candle wick and flame on top!

Gift Box Cake

This gift box cake idea was submitted by Christie May of Melbourne, Australia.

Decorating tips by Christie:

I made this cake for my father's 60th birthday. It's a yellow cake decorated with butter cream and fondant. The base icing in white is butter cream because my dad loves butter cream. And the ribbons were made of fondant.

Candle Cake

This candle cake decorating design is submitted by Dixie-Karen Bibeau of United States.

Decorating tips by Dixie-Karen:

I used the Wilton Sports Ball pan and one Duncan Heinz orange cake mix (I work full-time, I take shortcuts). Sliced a little off the bottom of one half so it doesn't roll around. Covered bottom half with buttercream and then with marshmallow fondant (the only kind to make--get a recipe off the web). Sandwiched the two halves into a ball with chocolate buttercream, then covered the top ball with buttercream and fondant. 

Next day, I piped cornelli lace and dug out a nest for the candle. Surrounded it with silk poinsettias, and voila! Cake. 

The only problem is that people don't think it's cake until you tell them, and then some of them won't believe you.

Our niece allowed us to decorate however we wanted, my husband was smoothing out the frosting when he lifted the spatula and the first spike was formed. So he started playing and the Spiked Wedding cake was born. 

By simply lifting the spatula to form the peaks and the cake turned out wonderfully.Our niece loved it. This is our favorite one we have made so far.

Chocolate Anniversary Cake with Couple Topper

This chocolate anniversary couple topper cake idea was submitted by Veena Azmanov of Israel.

Decorating tips by Veena:

I made this cake for an anniversary. The bottom tier is a 9" chocolate cake, and the top tier is a 7" butter Cake. Both these amazing recipes from this site. 

I covered the cakes with rolled Chocolate Fondant and detailed with rolled fondant lace. I've recently been very facinated with sugar models and been practising them for the last one month. These are my first offical sugar model that went on a cake. The couple was thrilled and it really made me proud. If you like to see more of my cakes please visit my site
