3 Things to Consider:

  • If you have a party theme in mind, how can you decorate your cake to fit in with it?
  • Will the party be formal? casual?
  • If you're planning an elegant affair, steer clear of cutesy decorations and go with a simple and sophisticated design. Perhaps incorporate a color you'll be using in your party decorations. With a casual party, anything goes.

  • Does the guest of honor have a favorite kind of cake?
  • If the answer's yes, it would be a thoughtful gesture to make it for the party. Bonus: you've just narrowed your options and that makes things simpler. Yay! Simpler is a good thing.

Once you decide how you're going to decorate your cake, get off to a good start with our best buttercream frosting recipe, our chocolate buttercream icing recipe or one of our recipes for fondant icing.
