Animal-Shaped Cakes

What could be more fun than a cake shaped like a lion, shark, dog or unicorn? We have made many animal-shaped birthday cakes for kids and they’re always a huge hit.

Fantasy-Themed Cakes

You might also consider a cake that’s a little more out of this world—like a cake shaped like an alien, monster, or dragon. Castles, pirate ships, and certain schools for witchcraft and wizardry are also popular.

Food-Themed Cakes

Kids just love cakes that are shaped like other foods—like pizza, hamburgers, ice cream cones, and watermelons. You could order a cake in the shape of your child’s favorite food, or a type of food that will be served (in real form) at the party.

Sports-Themed Cakes

If you’ve got a budding athlete in your family, make their day with a cake shaped like a soccer ball, football, or miscellaneous piece of sports gear. You could also order a flat sheet cake decorated like a sports field.

Purse-And Shoe-Shaped Cakes

Little girls and grown-ups alike love our cakes that look just like real purses and shoes. This is a great cake choice for a beauty or dress-up themed party.
