Match the Party Theme – If the party has a theme, the cake with certainly stand out if it fits in with the overall décor.
Coordinate Colour – A simple way to choose icing and decoration colours is to match them to the guest of honour’s favourite colours. Another option is to fit the colours into the party theme.
Consider hobbies and interests – Hobbies and interest lend great inspiration to a celebration cake. A cake that incorporates their hobbies or interests will not only make the cake unique to them but will certainly make their big day even more special.
The guide below shows approximate serving sizes for round and square sponge cakes. This is based on cutting into portions of 1”x 2”. Please note these sizes are approximate and it depends on the person cutting the cake.
Use a very sharp straight edged knife. Using a serrated knife will shred the cake and make the portions harder to gauge.
