Looking for something different? Here are 10 ways to take your cake up a notch and help create a memorable centerpiece to help celebrate your special event.
Add Some Glitter!
Example: Lavender Princess 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!Find more sparkle in these cakes here.
Give Your Cake Some Height
Example: Monogrammed and Button Themed Wedding Cakes
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
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!Want more? See our other toppers here.
Have A Sculpted Cake Created
Example: Drum Set Bar Mitzvah Cake
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!See our other hand sculpted cakes here.
Add A Personalized Monogram
Example: 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.Find other monogrammed cakes for your big day here.
Bring On The Bling!
Example: Bows and Bling 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.Find more cakes with bows here.
Add Cupcake Liners To Your Cupcake Tower
Example: Sarah’s Peapod Baby Shower Cupcake Tower
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:
Show Your Wild Side With Some Animal Print
Example: Leopard Print Birthday Cake
This leopard print cake is “Wrapped” together with hot pink bands and large glittery bows to accent the animal print. An added touch, take a closer look at the animal print cupcakes in a mix of zebra, tiger and leopard print with matching bows!Find more animal print cakes here!

Sports fanatics will love seeing their team colors and sport on display. We have done soccer balls, basketballs and footballs amongst others to complete a sporty cake.Looking to take your cakes up with a sports theme? See our other sports cakes here!
