Novelty Sweet Sixteen Cakes
Embrace her personality with a cake shaped like a shoe, shopping bag, or cell phone. While a specialty bakery will be happy to fulfill your novelty cake request, you can try your hand at baking these fun cakes yourself by using novelty cake pans or by cutting and piecing together sheet cakes.
Princess Sweet Sixteen Cakes
If your teen is a princess at heart, treat her to an elaborate tiered cake iced with smooth fondant and adorned with edible pears and dragees.
Photo Sweet Sixteen Cakes
Take a walk down memory lane with a photo birthday cake decorated with a baby picture, summer camp snapshot, or Halloween photo of the guest of honor. Chances are you won't be able to pull this cake off at home-instead, order through your local bakery.
Non-Traditional Sweet Sixteen Cakes
Instead of choosing a traditional iced cake, your teen may opt for a "grown-up" birthday dessert, such as tiramisu, fruit and yogurt parfait, or cheesecake. (Be sure to have a small sheet cake on hand so you can keep with the candle-blowing tradition.)
Have fun celebrating this milestone birthday for the special young lady in your life with a sweet 16 birthday cake that is sure to be remembered for a lifetime.
