Birthdays parties are not only about decorations, but also cakes! I think aside from the decorations and treats for the kids the cake plays a very important role! That's what guests look forward to the most. With cakes nowadays it makes it even more interesting as to what the cake is going to look like. I remember when cakes used to be chocolate and one sheet; now they have pictures or they are shaped depending on your theme. There are so many crazy, fun, and creative bakers out there it's hard to decide who to choose. I try and ask for pictures of past events and cake tastings. Now not only do you want it to look good, but taste good too! What good is an awesome looking cake and when you serve it to your guests they have don't enjoy it. We always try and impress our guests, and THE cake is a key component in any event. Have fun and find a creative baker for your event. Remember always taste before you pay.
