Design your perfect celebration cake

Sometimes picking a cake design is easy, however often choosing the perfect cake idea can be a little overwhelming – your recipient likes so many things. How do you choose?

We love working with our customers to create the perfect celebration or birthday cake design, we want you to have a showpiece that the receipient will love and is a showpeice for the party.

Choosing cake elements

We understand why people want everything, it is a milestone birthday and they want to celebrate that person’s life achievements.

Also, we understand that most people don’t buy a handmade cake every year – they are for big milestones and special occasions – and everyone wants their money’s worth and wants to make sure they are choosing the perfect cake!

However, you need to narrow down the options. You’re not ordering a photo album, a mood board or setting up an online dating profile, we’re making you a cake. We have limited space to play with and we want it to be a beautiful showpiece to wow your guests and the birthday boy/girl.

We advise you try and think about what their one main passion is so we can create a cake design theme around that single idea. The more elements you add, the more cluttered it looks.

Less is more

In our experience, cakes with lots of different mismatching things look odd. We cannot create a beautiful cake when we need to put a donkey, next to a fishing rod beside a pair of football boots. They don’t go together in real life, and they look peculiar next to each other on a cake. It ends up looking plonked, cluttered and can look like not much thought has gone into the cake design.

Ask the cake designers

If you’re unsure about choosing the perfect cake, you can contact us and speak to our cake designers to discuss your cake and we can help you decide on the best route to take. We’ve made thousands of cakes and know what works, trust us and listen to our advice. We’re here to help you create that photo-worthy cake and lasting memories of that special occasion.
