Custom Birthday Cakes: Types
Custom birthday cakes come in different types, styles and sizes. The main custom birthday cake types include sheet cakes, single tier cakes, multi-tier custom birthday cakes, custom birthday cupcakes and more. Before choosing, it’s quite helpful to know the number of guests who will be attending the birthday party. If it’s the right number of guests, multi-tier custom birthday cakes will be the right choice instead of sheet custom birthday cakes. The more guests, the more tiers that can be added to the custom birthday cake, or alternatively a side sheet cake of the same colors and flavors can accompany the main cake in order to feed large amounts of guests and bring the cost of the custom birthday cake down.
Custom Birthday Cakes: Styles & Ideas
Before planning out the theme and style of your custom birthday cake, it is helpful to know the birthday person’s interests and passions. Usually when designing custom birthday cakes customers choose an interest or hobby and have the custom cake match that in some creative and attractive way. Custom birthday cake themes have included fashion and shopping (LV bags, Chanel bags, designer heels, and more), fairy tale themes such as Cinderella, sports themes for the boys, fishing and other hobbies, and much much more. Basically, the sky is the limit and whatever you can think up, we can make. Our highly skilled and extremely experienced cake masters have done it all when it comes to custom birthday cakes, and if you think of something they haven’t done, they are eager for the challenge! Creativity is the key with custom birthday cakes, and the sky is the limit!
Birthday Cake Flavors and Fillings
As for the flavor of the custom birthday cakes, there are many options but lots of people go with the basics of chocolate, vanilla or strawberry. Perhaps the most exciting part is the cake filling, which adds an extra element of delicious to the custom birthday cakes. These creamy fillings can come in chocolate, vanilla, strawberry as well as less traditional flavors including dulce de leche, raspberry and tiramisu. For a complete list of cake and fillings flavors for our custom birthday cakes check out the cake flavors page.
Custom birthday cakes can also come in the form of custom birthday cupcakes. For something with that creative customized feel, but easier to dish out to the birthday party attendees, custom birthday cupcakes are just the right thing. These custom cupcakes are similar to custom birthday cakes in that they come in tiers, but usually the top tier is a custom cake and the bottom few tiers are the custom cupcakes as in the picture below.
