Photo Cakes: Run out of birthday cake ideas? Making a cake with a translucent, sugar "photo" is easy, and enjoyable by birthday boys and girls of all ages. Just take a favorite photo to your local cake decorating store, and they can prepare an edible version of it for a few dollars. Follow the instructions provided, and you can add it to the top of a simple, iced cake. Voila! Instant birthday gratification!
Birthday cakes are also good in making people still hang around after most of the events of a birthday party. In most cases, after eating, singing and playing, cakes are used in keeping the environment lively instead of having an environment which is boring.
