20 Birthday Cake Ideas that Can be Prepared Easily

There is this new trend going to, perhaps not so new, but the Birthday Cakes got to be unique now, and they should be related to something that is one the favourites of the Birthday Boy or Girl.

And coming up with a unique Birthday cake design is not easy, let alone preparing the Birthday cake. I have been in a similar situation myself, and I took to Instagram for ideas, I am posting it here on the blog for everyone who might find this useful.

Remember that it’s just the idea and not the recipe because baking a cake is pretty similar, the next action, that is called dressing, is where the creative part begins and these ideas shall help you with the creative part. You can check out our Cake section to learn about baking a cake.
