When you start thinking about themes for Novelty Birthday Cakes the possibilities are truly endless. Making a great cake can really tie the whole party theme together and is literally the icing on the cake, so take some time to brainstorm ideas.
The trick is to really let the creative juices flow and not be intimidated by something that you think might be too hard. There is a way around everything so don’t limit your thinking at the start. In reality if the theme you select does seem too hard, there is always likely to be some toppers or props you can buy to put on a beautifully iced cake. This is the simplest, but still highly effective way to make a novelty birthday cake.
So where do you start? The first thing to do is consider the birthday girl or boy. Carefully consider who you are making the cake for and list out all the things they are interested in – hobbies, sports, crafts, animals, flowers, foods, fashion etc. Also talk to them and establish if they are having a party and what the theme is. This could make deciding on cake theme very easy.
Once you have some general information to get started on you can begin to brainstorm ideas for the theme of Novelty Birthday Cakes. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
Girls – Ponies, big cupcake, handbags, jewellery box, princess, fairies, castle, Barbie, flowers, butterflies
