We have family birthdays so they are pretty casual. Sometimes the cakes are fancy and sometimes they aren’t so this is perfect to plan for this coming year.

Yes please! I am a big fan of cake, so I’d like to try all of these. I tend to buy birthday cakes though since I’m not the best with decorating.

I wish I was a god baker…all of these cakes look amazing!! YUM!

Caitlin January 18, 2019 - 8:54 am

Choosing a favorite is hard! I love anything with cream cheese icing and also icebox cakes since my birthday is in August. #hot

I love anything with fruit or berries!! Some of these cakes look stunning, and oh so delicious!

What an incredible assortment of truly delicious sounding cakes. I had never thought about a peach flavored cake but I bet it is amazing. The chocolate mousse would be amazing right now but I might have to check out the recipe for the Pineapple Upside Down cake I don’t think I have ever tried one but they always look so good. YUM! Now I want cake for brunch.

I wish I had the creative ideas that these people do. I am definitely going to try to copy a few of them and see if I can do that. With my husband’s birthday coming up it would be fun to do something creative like this.

Cake is the best part of any birthday celebration, and everyone takes a piece. These cakes are amazing and all so unique. That pineapple upside down looks worth a try.

Heather January 18, 2019 - 9:38 pm

They all look so delicious. Now I want to eat some cake 🙂

Every Birthday we are looking for new cake ideas. Other than a chocolate fudge cake we don’t have many consistent ones. This is a great list.

Pam January 18, 2019 - 11:59 pm

I love cake so it’s hard to choose one of these to make first! But that raspberry goat cheese cheesecake sounds pretty good…

Lisa Martin January 19, 2019 - 12:25 am

These are all such beautiful cakes! I’m not able to create such beauty myself, but I know that cake is one of my favorite things for any party!

Tim B January 19, 2019 - 10:07 am

I would want to try the goat cheese one to be adventurous in trying new things. The chocolate chip cake would be my favorite and I know my kids would love the blue bear cake

Beth January 19, 2019 - 10:36 am

All of these cakes look so good! I’m a decent baker, but I’m not very good at decorating cakes. I hope you have a very happy birthday!

Cathy Mini January 19, 2019 - 11:10 am

Those are great cake ideas. I prefer the chocolate one as it is my favorite flavor.

Lynndee January 19, 2019 - 1:03 pm

Those birthday cakes are gorgeous indeed! I have a sweet tooth and these pictures are making me want to have a piece of cake right now.
