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.
There are ways you could prepare good cakes which everyone would love. Adults like themes like a diary, a champagne bottle, or things which depict a favorite sports character. Therefore, cakes for adults do not need to be that vibrant. You may just have something simple with the name and good wishes of the person written on it. In the case of cakes for kids, you should consider what kids generally like. In the case of birthday parties for children, you could have designs showing baby blocks, puppies, teddy bears, blue skies, flowers, yellow ducks and the like.
