Sweet 16 Birthday Cake

Sweet 16 birthday cake

Turning 16 years old is a big deal. In some countries, it is the age when you are allowed to get a driver’s license, which is actually a really big deal. However, it is important to have a great party. It definitely must be different than the usual parties. It doesn’t matter whether you want a big party or a simple family gathering, it must be different than the usual birthdays.

Now, one of the most important things to consider at your birthday is the cake. No matter whether you have a huge party with 200 guests or just a small family gathering, you will have a cake. It is actually a symbolic thing for anniversaries.

There are 2 types of people. Firstly, there are those people who want a huge cake, no matter what. Secondly, there are those people who will buy a cake according to the number of guests they have. Now, the usual portion of cake is of 100 g per person. So, for 20 people, you should buy a 2.3 kg cake, as you have to put a little extra for those who want more. I advise you to buy your cake according to the number of guests because people rarely eat cake leftovers. Not only you will pay less but you also won’t have to throw away the cake leftovers. However, if you really insist having a huge cake while you have just a few guests, I advise you to pack them the rest of the cake. Give everyone another portion or two to take home. In some cultures, it is actually a tradition to give your guests some packed cake to take home.

When it comes to the design of the cake, there is an infinite number of possibilities. You can always look for inspiration on social media websites. Also, you can ask the person responsible with your cake design to show you some photos of previous cakes he has made, so that you can get some inspiration from there. Now, if you want it very personal and customized you can have a photo of you or something you really like on top of your cake. You can also go for a vintage pattern drawn on your cake, it is elegant and it looks amazing. Besides these, you can have your cake in the shape of something you like. For boys, there is always the football ball option. For girls, it can be in the shape of a pair of shoes or a purse or whatever you like, really. If you are throwing a huge party, there is always the classic huge cake which opens up and you can come out of it.

All in all, I advise you to customize your cake, especially at your sweet 16 anniversary because it will be a moment you will never forget and you need something sweet to remind you of it. I also advise you to order your cake according to the number of guests you have.
