10 Ways to take your CAKE up a NOTCH!

  • 1
    Add Some Glitter!
    Example: Lavender Princess Birthday Cake

    Princess Wand Girls Birthday Cake

    For the girly girl types- we can never have too much glitter! This two tiered birthday cake has a pink glittery scrolled number three against a quilted tier with a reverse scallop in pink. The magical wand has tons of purple glitter to spread happiness for the birthday girl and all of her guests. The birthday girl’s name shines in a sparkly silver glittered script and glitter is dashes around the entire cake. This cake will outshine above the rest!

    Give Your Cake Some Height
    Example: Monogrammed and Button Themed Wedding Cakes

    Button Modern Wedding cakes on Vintage Cake Stands

    Literally, take it up a notch! Do not be afraid to play with the height to achieve the look you want. It is easy to achieve height when serving a number of guests, but when you have a smaller gathering you can create height by adding a cake stand. Cake stands come in all different heights and can be mixed and matched to create a more dramatic presentation.

    Take a look at some dessert tables which show a variety of heights to pull the look together.

    Add A Figurine
    Example: Mile’s First Birthday Cake

    Jungle and Animal Themed Birthday Cake

    Adding a figurine topper is a fun way to personalize your cake for someone special. This birthday boy sits next to a number one dressed in a safari shirt and khakis with some animal friends to celebrate his first major milestone!

    One of our most popular personalized toppers are our pregnant lady toppers. These are fun ways to celebrate baby showers for the mommy-to-be!

    And for the truly adventurous do-it-yourself type we have a online toppers techniques class that walks you through step-by-step on how to create your own toppers!

    Have A Sculpted Cake Created
    Example: Drum Set Bar Mitzvah Cake

    Cakes for Bar Mitzvahs

    Sculpted cakes offer a unique way to display the celebrants hobbies, special interests or theme for that special day. We love creating sculpted cakes, but remember these complex cakes do cost more due to the additional labor involved, so they may not be appropriate for every customer. This Bar Mitzvah cake brings in a “Bang” with a snare drum, bass, drum and cymbals with drumsticks in motion. Sheet music lays at the top while music notes sound off!

    Add A Personalized Monogram
    Example: Purple Monogram Wedding Cake

    Purple Monogram wedding Cake

    This monogram was based off of the couple’s wedding invitation. Adding a monogram adds a nice touch and is an elegant way to personalize your special event.

    Bring On The Bling!
    Example: Bows and Bling Bat Mitzvah Cake

    Bat Mitzvah Cake!

    We are seeing more brides request diamonds and crystals on their cake to achieve a romantic and stylish decor. Whether it’s a subtle accent or a bolder use of bling, brides often look to to add bling on their cake to coordinate with their dress or crystals from centerpieces.

    This bold and blingy cake has an elegant quilted pattern with black dots at their corners. The letter “A” in script is blinged out in crystals and the oversized bows show off crystal brooches in the center of each bow.

    Add Cupcake Liners To Your Cupcake Tower
    Example: Sarah’s Peapod Baby Shower Cupcake Tower

    Cupake Tiers with Peas in a Pod Topper Cake

    This topper cake is accented by two peas in a pod cupcakes, but the look really comes together with the matching liners. Adding liners to the cupcakes tie the look together and make a beautiful presentation.

    We are also in love with filigree cupcake liners! These liners were a perfect compliment to a recent Great Gatsby themed baby shower cake we created:

    Vintage 20s Baby Shower Cake
