Sally Sells Sea Shells

Starbucks Lover

This cake will make all the Ugg wearing, Starbucks coffee drinking girls go crazy. It instantly stands out with cupcakes that imitate hazelnut frappucinno. This is a Sweet 16 cake that you and all your friends will want a bite (or sip) of.

 

Gluttonous Paradise

Now this is a cake that you’ve probably never seen before. I like to call this one, a food lover’s dream. Every type of food you could imagine in one cake. The crazy part is that this cake doesn’t look like a cake at all, but cut open into it and you’ll be met by a vanilla cake interior. Just be prepared for some heavily confused stares – everyone is going to want to get their hands on this one.

 

The Bookworm

For all the book lovers out there, this one is for you. It’s a very clever cake that features three stacked books. A creative option would be to add titles to the books that feature the birthday your name, which will definitely make the bookworm in you warm with joy.

 

Floral Princess

The princess has arrived! This cake is for the girly girls who just can’t get enough of their flower obsession. This beautiful cake is light, elegant, and features floral decor on the bottom and top tiers. It gives off an airy and delicate vibe, which will be perfect for the lovely, 16 year-to-be princesses out there.

The 5 Best Cakes For Your Child’s Fall Birthday Party

Birthdays are all about cake, cake, cake, cake. I mean come on, did you think they were about anything else? We all just want a slice or two at our birthday celebration, but it is important that the couple of slices are worth the extra calories. We comprised a list of 5 darn good birthday cakes for you, or your child’s birthday celebration that will leave your mouth watering.

 

Candy Wonderland

Talk about a little kid’s dream all in one cake. Almost every type of candy (Hershey’s bars, lollipops, sweet and sour rolls, white chocolate covered wafers) has been wedged into this cake that faintly reminds us of Alice in Wonderland meets Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory. This is definitely an eye-gasmic cake.

 

Unicorn Dream Cake

There’s something about unicorns that peak almost every little girl’s interest. They’re cute, they’re mystical, and magical – just like this cake. It’s important to get creative with kid’s cakes because as much as they like eating, they also like something that looks good to eat. Therefore, we think it’s the perfect cake to set your daughter (or son’s) unicorn or pink-themed birthday party with.

 

M&M 3-Tier Cake

M&M’s are great on their own, and on cookies, but I’ve never tried them on a cake. So after having this, it tops my list of must have cakes. It has more M&M’s on it than you’ll need in a lifetime. Now thats’s saying something 😉 Your kids will go crazy for this one (and so will you).

 

Windmill Chocolate Cake

I call this a chocolate cake with a twist, get it? The chocolate chunks at the top of the cake are placed in a motion of a windmill, which definitely adds a dynamic aspect to the classic chocolate cake. This cake is sprinkled with chocolate chips on the exterior and has a moist delectable interior that will have you coming back for thirds.

 

Chocolate Truffle Tiramisu Cake

This is another one for the chocolate lovers. This tiramisu cake is for slightly older taste buds (perhaps 15 years and up) in order for it to be fully appreciated. Tiramisu cake has a way of looking almost too perfect. In a way it’s reminiscent of a iced chocolate macchiato, with hints of coffee and truffle bites; which is why this cake has made our top 5 best cakes list.
