Food is no longer judged solely on how it tastes – presentation contributes to the overall appeal. This is obvious with cakes, especially the personalised ones, which are aesthetically designed to capture the personality of the recipient or the joy of the occasion.
‘Interior cake design‘ is how this is more commonly known today (yep, I only just heard of that expression too!). Cakes of this ilk make perfect gifts because they show that you know the person very well and that you took time to consider the things that are important to them.
The look should complement the occasion and as Helen Brennan, Product Developer for Celebration Cakes at M&S shares, it is important that desserts should look as good as they taste. They have to be aesthetically beautiful to add to the overall flavour to entice the consumer.
Here are some ideas for your own interior cake designs:
A interior-layered cake with a matching mini bunting is perfect for the occasion. You can even top it with a pram-styled carriage or a teddy bear wrapped in pink and blue blankets. The gender is be revealed as soon as the mum-to-be cuts the cake.
You want your little one’s birthday party to be safe yet still enjoyable for the children? Do away with the traditional pinata and just make a cake with all the surprises inside it – you can hide an assortment of candies and chocolates.
Ballerina-inspired Birthday Cake
Is your kid into ballet? This ballerina-inspired cake would surely make her feel special. Not only that, this would inspire her to perfect her craft even more. Create a design that would go well with the entire theme of the celebration.
Proud of your age? Why not flaunt it with a creative number cake? You can make this with all butter sponge cake, filled with raspberry jam, and butter cream, then cover it with soft icing for a more heavenly taste.
