Most people with cable television services have seen at least one type of cake making show. There are competitions around different “challenges” and reality programs about the lives of custom cake makers. Cakes are an incredibly hot trend in the world of food and entertainment, and this is one of the reasons that an elaborate birthday flower cake is a very common request made to bakers of all kinds.
There are many different ways that someone can have a heavily decorated flower birthday cake, and these can range from cakes using several different tiers and structural elements, to simpler sheet cakes covered with carefully crafted fondant flowers too. The essential issue is that any birthday flower cake of this kind is quite likely to be the centerpiece of the event.
This means that designing the cake is going to be a major part of the party planning, and this also means that it is best to work with a baker or decorator who is willing to incorporate your vision into their custom design for a birthday flower cake.
One thing that most bakers will request is that their clients have some general ideas before coming in to discuss the design of the cake. This means that it is always a good ideas to begin pulling images from the Internet, magazines, and other resources in order to give the baker an accurate view of the type of décor, structure and general appearance that you hope to have. Additionally, your visuals can include simpler photographs of the types of blooms or foliage you want to see all over the birthday flower cake as well.
Does this mean that you have to have a theme that is actually more developed than the simpler “floral” concept? The answer to such a question can easily be both yes and no. It really all just depends upon the individual, and the results that they hope to obtain with the cake.
Consider that many people are now receiving such elaborate cakes as an actual birthday gift. Usually, these recipients are fans of one of the many cake making shows on television, and this means that the baker hired for the job is going to have to have a higher level of expertise and experience if they are going to “compete” with TV stars. Alternately, many people purchase these cakes to use as a sort of alternative décor, with the floral cake serving as the most delicious centerpiece possible!
