Milestone Birthday Cake Ideas _ If you're celebrating a special or milestone birthday, then you could make a cake in the shape of the age like a number 1, 16, 30, 50, 100, etc. Depending upon how many guests you plan on serving will help dictate the ultimate size of your age cake. Although this is a great idea, this type of cake isn't something that you would want to create year after year. It's best kept in reserve for a very special age.
Birthday cakes are usually of different types, depending on the ingredients used. People of different ages also have different tastes for them. For instance, kids usually like chocolate flavored cakes. The decorations and icing are always unique and striking and many mothers have always been very creative with the preparation of birthday cakes for their children. In the case of teenagers, they are a bit more mature and are not likely to go for a birthday cake with cartoon characters. Therefore, they like cakes which are simple in designs or cakes with styles such as bikes, cars, teen stars, chocolate bar, baseball, cakes, and so on.
