Sweet 16 Birthday Cakes

Sweet 16 birthday cakes are one of the most important parts of a sweet 16 birthday, besides the great company and creative fun!

Chinese Zodiac Cake

Baking a cake with the Chinese zodiac of the sweet 16 birthday girl is a fantastic idea. For the birthday girls of 2009 the Chinese zodiac sign is the Ox! For the birthday girls of 2010, the Chinese zodiac sign is the tiger.

So here are a few cool sweet 16 birthday cake ideas for your Chinese zodiac cake! I would first recommend decorating the sweet 16 cake with Chinese theme colors. Red is a very popular color in Chinese customs, for it symbolizes great fortune. Consider purchasing some red icing to decorate your cake with. Other common and popular colors include gold, burgundy, and cream beige shades.

When you are considering a Chinese zodiac theme for your sweet sixteen cake, inspire yourself by looking at Chinese art and popular decoration. Consider writing the happy birthday message in Chinese letters! You can learn how to write certain words right on the internet, just look it up and you shall find! Another great tip is to purchase a bag of fortune cookies from any bulk store. Lay the fortune cookies around the sweet sixteen cake, and make sure there are enough for every guest at the party. When you purchase the fortune cookies, make sure there are actual fortunes inside of the cookies!

Next, find the correct zodiac sign for the birthday girl. If she is a tiger or an ox, decorate the cake either in the shape of the animal or just paint it right on the cake with icing! You can find stencils at any craft or party shop, which will help you design the animal correctly. Find the proper colors to decorate the animal with, or you could even use one solid color to color the animal in with, for example black!

Astrological Cakes

If the birthday girl is a big astrology fan, why not bake a unique astrological theme sweet sixteen cake! The first step in baking this cake is finding out what her astrological sign is. If you are unsure, here are the dates of each star sign:

* Capricorn: Dec 23- Jan 19

* Aquarius: January 20- February 18

* Pisces: February 19- March 20

* Aries: March 21- April 19

* Taurus: April 20- May 20

* Gemini: May 21- June 20

* Virgo: August 23- September 22

* Libra: September 23- October 22

* Scorpio: October 23- November 21

* Sagittarius: November 22- December 21

Once you have the astrological sign down pat, it is time to plan the decorating! You can find the design for each astrological sign on the internet or in any astrological book.

The great quality of baking an astrological sweet sixteen cake is that all of the astrological signs are very simple to design! A fantastic idea is to write some of the positive qualities about the characteristics of the astrological sign on the cake with writing icing!

Have fun and play around with ideas, make up some design ideas on paper and the sweet 16 birthday cake will surely be unique and fabulous!
