Different Cake Designs To Celebrate Milestone Birthdays & Occasions


When you have a milestone birthday or a special occasion to celebrate, an excellent way to do so is by having a fantastic 3D cake made in a specific design. There are many designs from which you can choose for the cake, and there are also many excellent cake designers throughout the country that can help you. You will want to find one that is close to you and book it early to avoid disappointment. Below are some cake design ideas to help you get started to know what is possible and the different options available to you.

Celebrating A 17th Birthday

In the UK, a 17th birthday is a special occasion as it means the person whose birthday it is, is now eligible to learn to drive a car. An excellent way to celebrate this occasion is to have a cake made in their favourite make and model of car, no matter what that is. Some of the popular options for car birthday cakes include:

  • VW
  • Mercedes
  • BMW
  • Audi
  • Ferrari
  • Lamborghini
  • Porsche

You can wind them up before their birthday and tell them you are getting their favourite car, although they may be slightly disappointed when they find out it is not real.

Celebrating An 18th Birthday

When someone turns 18 in the UK, they are classed as adults and can now vote and go to the pub for an alcoholic drink. An excellent way to celebrate this coming of age is to get them a cake in the form of their favourite alcoholic beverage. As it is a celebration, a champagne bottle birthday cake may be an excellent choice for you, but there are other alternatives you can consider. With the skills some of these cake designers have, you can put the cake next to an actual bottle of champagne, and it will look highly realistic.

Celebrating Getting On The Property Ladder

It can be challenging for young people to save the money they need to get on the property ladder, so it is worth celebrating when they finally achieve it. An excellent way to do this is to get some pictures of their new house before they move into it and commission a custom-made cake that looks like it. Watch their jaws drop when they see the mini replica of their new home, including all the details of the property that make it look lifelike.

Graduating University

Another milestone celebration that you may want to mark with a cake is graduating from university. There are many options for a cake design for someone who is graduating and surprising them for the occasion. You can have a cake made in the style of a diploma or a cap and gown that they wear when graduating. If they are going into a specific profession, you can also get a cake made to reflect this, such as a doctor, lawyer, or dentist themed cake.

These are a few options of cakes you can have made for a special occasion or milestone event, but there are many more besides. Contact your local cake designer today and see what options they have available to ensure your celebration, whatever it is, is an excellent one.
