Sweet 16 Birthday Cake Ideas

Sweet 16 Birthday Cake Ideas

A sixteenth birthday is all the time special. A 16-year-old is a class on his own - he or she is no longer determined a child, but is not an adult quite yet. This makes the planning for the birthday party hard, since you wouldn't want it to look like a children's party, but you don't want it to be too "adult" as well. Here are some sweet 16 birthday cake ideas that you can use.

Since the celebrant is young, color themes should also be young. Cake colors should be light, such as cream, pink, yellow and peach. Light blue shades as well as lilac and lavender may also be used. The colors and cake build must match the theme of the party. A layered fondant cake with pink or peach flower trimmings is ideal for parties with a costume ball theme. Celebrant can look like a princess with a balloon pink gown and tiara, and guests would wear costumes.

Cake Ideas

Another cake idea for the princess theme is to make small cupcakes and put them in a multi-layered cake stand. Trim them with tiny flowers made of icing. When arranged well, the cakes would look like tiny pots of flowers in a flower garden. You can use one color, or mixed pastel shades of pink, yellow and light orange. This cake would also be perfect if the party has a ballerina theme. A fairy theme would also be nice, with guests carrying wands and wearing shimmering pink wings.

With small round cupcakes, put colored frosting on top and arrange them so the cake would look like bubbles or balloons. This would look cute for a children's party theme, where guests can dress up like tiny kids. Instead of round cupcakes, you can also make quadrate or rectangular ones, and decorate each with colored frosting to make them look like tiny gift boxes. With a tiny creativity, have fun with a frosting bag and create patterns to simulate gift wrapping paper and ribbons. Or you can decorate them to look like tiny colored trucks or cars. This cake idea can be used for any party theme.

For large parties, 16 photo cakes can be arranged to make a photo album cake. Photos of the celebrant from age 1 to 16 can be located on each cake. Wouldn't it be fun for guests to see how the celebrant has grown and changed straight through the years?

So the next time person turns sweet 16, seeing birthday cake ideas should not be that difficult. You can browse straight through the internet and find pictures so you can show them to your baker. At this day and age, virtually any cake build is possible. So use your imagination, and be amazed at where it will take you.
