When you celebrate a big day, a cake is often the centerpiece for your celebration. For example, when you were a child your mother used to make a very elaborate cake to celebrate your birthday. She would cut an entire cake in a certain shape and then use it as the centerpiece to her living room. Now that you are grown up and your family have moved to a different house you may be wondering what kind of cake would work for your party.
The first thing you need to do when considering a cake is to think about what type of theme you are going to use for your party. You can have any cake theme you like. There are so many different themes for cakes, such as fairy tale, jungle, and princess. You can also have just a basic cake, such as the type you have in your grandmother's house. If you are having a more modern birthday party then you might want to choose a simple cake with the basic designs. You can even have a chocolate and vanilla birthday cake.
It is also a good idea to ask your child what kind of cake he or she likes the best. Most kids would say their favorite cake is a chocolate cake. You can give the child a cookie cutter to fill out the cake in his or her design. That way you can show him or her what cake they have made and what the finished product looks like.
Next decide if you want to buy or make your own cake. It is always a lot cheaper to buy a pre-made cake. However, you do not have to buy the cake from the store. There are many bakeries online where you can purchase cakes for your party. The only problem with buying pre-made cakes online is the shipping cost.
You should consider having a second cake. This can be done by making a smaller one in a round shape and cutting off a corner of it. You can decorate the remaining side of the cake with a layer of chocolate icing and frosting it with a white fondant. You can cut a small piece of fruit or a candy cane into the middle of the cake and add a straw, plastic straw, or a candle to make it look more festive.
If you choose to serve an ice cream sundae, you should buy a nice shaped cake with a large round top and put ice cream and some fruit on the top. and have the top of the cake covered in the fondant. You can also add the ice cream to the top and serve it with whipped cream. It will have the same effect as a traditional sundae.
One great way to have the cake look like it was made years ago is to make it look like it has flowers on it. You can do this by using different colors of roses, and if you choose you can put the cake on a cake stand. or you can even paint your cake with fondant and tie bows to make it look like the real thing.
You can also add special touches to the cake with flowers and fruits. You can add a wreath, ribbons and other decorations.
Another option for your cake is to make the top of the cake to look like a beach ball. All you need to do is to roll up your cake with an old sheet of plastic wrap, and then place it on a cake stand.
When you first bring the cake into the party room and place it on the cake stand, it may appear to be a little messy. You can buy a few balloons and glue them around the edges and let them float around the top.
The last option is to take a cake decorating class. If you can afford it, this is probably the best way to get the best result out of your cake.
