sweet 16 birthday cakes

It was my daughter's 16th birthday, and I had been taking a fondant cake decorating class in my spare time. So this cake turned out way better than expected!

The cake itself is a 14-layer buttercream cake. I would recommend putting cake in refrigerator for a day or two before decorating.

I decorated this cake using fondant and color gels. The fondant was store bought. I used food color gels to color my fondant. I then covered the cake in pink fondant. I then did cut outs of green and balls of black fondant to design the cake.

It was a huge hit.


Now that you have observed the many different varieties of sweet 16 birthday cakes, it is time to consider how to create your own. The first step is to determine the color scheme that you are utilizing for the birthday party celebration. Most parties integrate combinations of pink, white, and black; however, there are other popular color schemes such as purple and black and blue and black. Once you have determined what colors you will use, you must consider how many guests will be attending the celebration and how much money you have to purchase special supplies for the cake design, such as cake pans and toppers. If you are interested in getting started right away, you may utilize the following instructions to create a memorable birthday cake:
