Are you getting ready to plan your daughter’s sweet sixteen party? Chances are, you are already feeling a few emotions. Your little girl is not going to be a little girl any longer. She will be celebrating the day when she is moving from girlhood into a new phase of life: womanhood. Pretty soon, she will be wanting to borrow the car. Pretty soon, she will be dating. Not too many years from now, she will graduate high school, then college, and she will move out on her own. No, your little girl is not a baby anymore.
Obviously, you will want the day to be very special. Her sweet sixteen, such an important landmark, needs to be celebrated just right. When you start planning, and hopefully, you are planning early so that you do not feel rushed, you will have plenty of decisions to make. One important decision will be the cake. In some ways, sweet sixteen cakes are just as important as wedding cakes later in life. This is why choosing the right one is so important.
If you need some cake ideas to help you get started choosing the right one, here is some direction that will surely lead you in the right direction.
Think about what your daughter wants. After all, it is a day all about her, so choose something that meets her wishes. Do not leave her out of the choosing process and take her to the bakers to select the type of cake, icing, and decorations. Let her have input on how it will look.
Make sure the cake matches the theme if your party will have one. Many girls choose to enjoy being a princess on their sweet sixteen. If your daughter wants such an event, then make the cake reflect it with glitter and roses. You could even top the cake with a glass slipper or a bouquet. No matter what the theme will be, talk over ideas with your baker so that you can make the cake match the event.
Consider unique and fun ideas. You could have your daughter’s picture placed on a cake or you could choose a cake that is shaped in a special form like a purse or a car, depending on what your daughter would like.
When you get ready to plan your daughter’s birthday, make sure every detail is in order and choose just the right cake for the event.
