In case you’re in the midst of making that Occasion Cake and trying to decide what the best thing is, this article will help you choose the perfect occasion for your cake. Sometimes, it is difficult to know how to write a particular occasion and be creative about it. Here are some occasions that make a fabulous cake for that reason.
First, let’s talk about the most common occasion that can be turned into a cake. Perhaps you’ve seen birthday cakes on most pages. For that reason, birthday cakes are considered the best thing for an Occasion Cake. Birthday cakes are fun and easy to make and most birthday cakes are decorated with colorful icing to make them festive.
If you have ever been to a kid’s birthday party, chances are the birthday cake was of some type of chocolate. Kids love chocolate! You can make a birthday cake out of a mixture of chocolate cake mix and fondant or silicone molding. This combination of two chocolate ingredients creates a wonderful chocolate dessert.
Just because the Occasion Cake is chocolate does not mean that the person eating it does not like other types of chocolate. Some people, especially those who don’t have a sweet tooth at all, will simply enjoy eating vanilla cake. Of course, if you are serving the Occasion Cake as a gift, then you want to ensure that the chocolate isn’t too overpowering.
Chocolate and vanilla are not the only options for chocolate cake. You may have heard the term gingerbread being thrown around. The reason for this is because gingerbread and chocolate go hand in hand. Often, when the Occasion Cake is given as a gift, a frosting or a topping is made out of it. It could be a nice addition to your Occasion Cake.
Chocolate and peppermint may sound weird but they are absolutely delightful. The cakes are often topped with these flavors and of course, the icing is typically white chocolate. You could also top the Cake with other ingredients such as fruits, nuts, or even Christmas ornaments.
Another good example of a fruit-based frosting for the birthday Cake is blueberry; You might also look for blueberry flavored baking powder. You can use the latter to frost your cake.
For those who are traditionalists, you can always use vanilla instead of chocolate. Also, you could use chocolate frosting. Frosting the Cake with one of these two flavors would make it perfect.
If you have a recipe that includes a filling for the cake, you can either use the filling for the birthday Cake or purchase a pre-made version. For instance, you could get a cake topper filled with flavored frosting that you already have. You could also use the pre-made frosting to make a topper that matches the Cake you are planning to serve.
Variations can be added to the Cake by simply using different flavors of frosting. You could use one flavor frosting on the top and another on the sides. This would create a very different taste in the cake.
The last occasion that can be considered for this type of Cake is Halloween. A small cupcake or tart might be a very scary looking thing for your party Cake. The key here is to create a cupcake with frosting that has a spooky or cute design that will give it a little bit of a Halloween character. Another idea is to make a devilish grin look like a glowing eye.
Deciding what the best thing to serve as an Occasion Cake is not hard. Just take a look at the occasions listed above and see which one you feel has the best chance of making a good Occasion Cake.
And remember; when you want to bake a little surprise for someone you know and surprise them with a little present; why not consider a Halloween Occasion Cake that you can create yourself
