birthday cakesSince the middle of the 19th century birthday cakes have been an essential part of most everyone’s annual celebration of the day they were born. Often times the cake is covered with lit candles while friends and family sing the familiar “Happy Birthday to You” song.  Birthday cakes can wow both kids and adults alike, which is why it’s the cake that is remembered more than anything else for many years into the future.

“You know you’re getting old when you get that one candle on the cake. It’s like, ‘See if you can blow this out.'”

There are many bakeries that can make birthday cakes in all different shapes and designs that can help make the birthday party you’re planning most unforgettable.  You’ll want to find a cake shop that will fulfill all of your birthday cake needs from kids ice cream birthday cakes, to specialty cakes with super hero or princess themes,  or traditional birthday cakes.

The frosting on birthday cakes can either be the best or worst part of the cake. It’s always a good idea to sample both cake and icing before placing an order. Local cake bakeries (cakeries) can design a unique birthday cake topper using a wide variety of frosting colors, sugary flowers, and other edible creations to make your birthday cake as simple or fancy as you can imagine.

The birthday cake is the perfect addition to any birthday party. Many professional bakeries in your local market are capable of delivering the birthday cake to the venue where your event is being held. You’ll need to coordinate with the bakers about delivery time and place, and any other important information about the birthday party you’re planning that they may need to know.
