Decorating Themed Cakes

Are you planning on baking a cake for a special occasion, such as a birthday, anniversary or graduation? Giving it a theme will add the personal touch that’s sure to be appreciated by the recipient. Themed cakes can be as easy to make as they are fun!  You can create one with some basic design tips.

Select your theme: Obviously, you’ll want to think about who you’re building your cake for. What is the child’s favorite sport or hobby? How does the couple like to spend their time together? What extra-curricular did the graduate succeed in? Think about how you can incorporate these themes into your cake.

Determine the size: Find out how many guests the cake will be serving. This will help you determine how much room for detail you have in your design.

Pick your shape: Be creative when choosing the shape of your cake. If the graduate enjoys riding horses, you don’t need to create a horse-shaped cake; something related but simpler, such as a horseshoe will do. Round cakes are the easiest to bake and decorate.

Choose toppers: Cake Connection offers plenty of cake decorating supplies to incorporate into your creation. Add the right toppers and picks to complete your creation!

      Hello Nancy,
      My apologies for not seeing your message sooner! No, actually I stopped selling cakes about 6 years ago as our store got busier as well as my traveling around the country teaching…

    Superb site you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any user discussion forums that cover the same topics talked about here? I’d really like to be a part of online community where I can get responses from other experienced people that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Appreciate it!

      I’m sorry, but I actually don’t actively follow any of the forums enough to feel confident in recommending one over the others. You might have better luck asking in one of the pages on Facebook and see what others recommend.

      Diane 🙂
