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.
Animal Cakes: The younger set will especially enjoy a cake decorated to resemble their favorite animal. Kittens, puppies, pandas, and teddy bears are classic favorites. An easy way to decorate an animal_themed children's birthday cake is to use two round layers. Use the first round cake as the animal's head, and cut the second round cake to make ears and other features.
