Whether it’s good old-fashioned angel food or trendy Southern red velvet, birthday cake is still the highlight of any party for kids or adults. These days, however, the definition of “birthday cake” is expanding to also include cupcakes. Cupcakes are a good party choice because they are easier to serve, and more customizable than regular party cakes—the perfect answer when half your guests want chocolate and the other half crave vanilla.
Some of the trends in specialty cakes are topsy turvy, 3D, Fondant covered, edible photographs or whatever you can imagine. Then of course there are all of the cake, filling and frosting options. The possibilities are endless. In tiered cakes, each one can be something different. The size of the cakes can feed a few or hundreds of people. The cakes are like blank palates that are decorated with icing to create absolute masterpieces. Cakes can be designed to match a theme, color scheme or even the personality of the clients. All of this is taken into consideration because a special event deserves a special cake.
