Cakes For Men: Decorating Ideas

There is a long and rich history behind the cake design. It is believed that the first cake design took place over 3 thousand years ago in the ancient desert of Egypt. Royal Birthdays was celebrated with extravagant flat cakes that looked like cakes but were made from edible cake mix. In the early 17th century, bakers developed the idea of creating multiple-tier and frosted birthday cake designs, which often included floral designs.

After the French Revolution, when King Louis XIV began to introduce new civil laws in France, he banned any kind of flavoured cake or sweetened cakes. This eventually affected not only French cake design but cakes from all over Europe. People had to come up with ways to make their favourite cake taste different, especially if it was meant to be an accessory for an important birthday celebration.


The cake design has changed over the years, however, and there are now several famous ones that are parts of birthday party traditions, such as birthday cake toppers, Mickey Mouse cake toppers, and much more. If you want to have your cake decorated, then you can have a professional baker to create a cake design for you. However, if you have the time, then you can also do some of the decoration yourself. Cake decorating has gotten so much easier in recent years. For example, you no longer need to use heavy cream or buttercream icing to design a cake, because you can now use fondant or buttercream in its place.


You can also have a cake decorated according to a theme. For example, if you are celebrating a baby’s birthday, then you can have a cake decorated according to baby colours. You can even use pink frosting if it is the baby’s favourite colour. You can also use cake design books or magazines to get ideas. You can also look online for tips on how to make a cake look decorated. Tons of websites offer information on cake decoration.

Some people also like to have a themed cake design. They can dress the tiered cake in blue for a baby’s birthday party, or they can dress it up in a red, pink, and white theme for a baby girl’s birthday party. If it is a surprise birthday party, then you can have the cake designer add a personalized cake topper on each cake. A personalized cake is great because it shows that you took the extra effort to make that special day even more special for the person that is celebrating. A good cake designer can be very creative when it comes to ideas for themed cake designs.

Design Options

Some men prefer more masculine cake designs. For a man’s birthday, you could get him a cake that says something like “Happy Birthday, sir” or “To Your Health, sir”. Cakes that are shaped like tools or sports equipment are also very popular for men.

Other men like cake designs that have a masculine flair to them. No rule says you have to have a cake that looks like it was designed by a male. You can decorate it however you want it to, and the icing will show it. If you are having a male friend or relative to celebrate his birthday, then why not have a cake with an athletic theme? Maybe, a cake decorated with equipment, or a sports ball, or even a cake with athletic shoes on it.

For the birthday cake of someone that does not share your interests, then it may be a good idea to get them something that is unique and different. A unique cake is always a hit. Red velvet cake makes a great base for any type of cake design. Some of the most popular cake decorations that use red velvet cake lines are cupcakes, pies, cookies, muffins, and cupcakes in birthday cake form. With so many options available, it is easy to come up with a cake that someone will love. It is not hard to find something that they will be happy to display.

Can You Have Flowers On The Wedding Cake?

The question often comes up asking, can flowers on cakes make your wedding or baby shower memorable? Is this something you can do yourself or do you have to hire someone to do this for you? The answer is both Yes! and No!

Now unless you’ve been living under a rock (this is cool), you’ve probably been pretty resistant to the idea of putting fresh flowers on cakes. After all, the thought of killing a tree to have your cake is probably not the image you want to have in your mind. They are also sometimes dangerous, as with many flowers. But wait, they are edible flowers!

Edible Flowers

Decorating cakes with edible flowers can add flair to any event. It adds flavour and variety when decorating with flowers. Also, it adds a natural look and isn’t that what decorating is all about? When using fresh flowers, you have to be careful as you aren’t just adding colour, but you are also adding fragrances. Each flower has a different scent. Using flowers will create an atmosphere where the aroma is more predominant than the taste of the flowers.

Even though edible flower food safety is becoming a thing of the past (due largely to the fact that it is required by law in many states), there are still some tips that should be followed when using them. First, you must use a non-toxic type of floral tape. This should be non-toxic enough so that it won’t cause any harm to anyone, but still will allow air to circulate. You will want to avoid using a glue that is glue-based. These glue-based adhesives are toxic and can cause burns, and if the icing is edible, your cake could even become malnourished from the glue.

Also, you should avoid adding fresh flowers on cakes that aren’t already prepared. When creating a cake, or preparing a cake for someone else, you need to make sure that they are not going to be ingesting dangerous amounts of food while being exposed to them. When you decorate a cake, and especially when you are adding fresh flowers to it, you need to take this very seriously. Don’t leave fresh flowers on a cake to be eaten…

But most importantly, you should keep fresh flowers on cakes out of the reach of children. If children were to find fresh flowers on cakes, it would probably cause them to suffer from a potentially fatal poisoning shock. This would certainly violate numerous childhood health laws that are in place for just this reason. Even if flowers on cakes are used to add a touch of natural flavouring or colour, kids need to understand that these flowers are dangerous and that there are real dangers that come with having flowers on cakes. Children simply cannot be trained to enjoy flowers on cakes…

Extra Tips

If you are adding flowers to your favourite cake, but you are unsure whether or not it is okay to do so, you may wish to ask the cake decorator who created the piece of cake for you. They will know whether or not flowers on cakes are appropriate. As with most things in life, if you have a choice, it’s always better to be safe than sorry.

Finally, another common question that people often have about adding fresh flowers on cakes is about taste. In general, the answer to this question is that yes, fresh flowers on cakes taste good. However, the best way to find out if flowers on cakes will taste good for you is to simply give them a try. By all means, look through the local cake store catalogue for ideas on what flowers to use – or even browse online for some inspiration. The important thing is to remember that there is no right or wrong answer to the question “Should flowers on cakes?”
