If you're ready to roll up your sleeves and start making your own alphabet cake, here are some of the most popular options that you might consider making:
BLOCK STYLE ABC CAKE
If you like the idea of creating a block type ABC cake, this is one of the easiest of all cakes to make. All you need to do is to make three square cakes. Then frost each layer as you begin to stack them together to form the block. Once all of the layers have been stacked, then frost the entire cake. If you're still working on creating a smooth surface when you frost your cakes, you could opt to cover the entire cake with fondant which would instantly give it a smooth, professional look.
Next you'll want to accent your cake a bit by piping out a decorative edge using a pastry bag and one of the tips of your choice. Using colored fondants that coordinate with your party colors, cut out the ABC letters using letter-shaped cookie cutters and adhere them to the sides of your cake using a bit of frosting. Lastly, add a birthday message and you're good to go.
Make your favorite cupcakes and frost them to coordinate with your party colors. Then top them off with some colorful sprinkles and place ABC letters cut out of fondant using letter cookie cutters in the center of each cupcake.
ALPHABET LETTER-SHAPED CAKE
Depending on how large you want to make your letters, you'll need to either bake three square or rectangle cakes. After they have cooled, place them in the refrigerator for about 30-45 minutes to firm them up, which will make it easier to cut them into the letter shapes. Meanwhile, create your A, B, C templates. If you have artistic skills then draw the letters free-hand, otherwise print them out on your computer. Then cut out the letters, frost them to coordinate with your party colors, and place the cakes side-by-side on a cake plate. You can also accent the letters with tiny flowers or fondant dots.
