A handcrafted birthday cake is the ultimate present. From towering layer cakes to one-bowl wonders, our favorite birthday cake recipes have a few things in common: they’re fun, festive, and require at least one candle.
Our best birthday cakes include floral, fruity numbers (like a tiered take on strawberry shortcake) and rich, fudgy crowd-pleasers (our Inside-Out German Chocolate Cake is a chocolate lover’s dream). With so many options, you can truly match the cake to the occasion: Want an excellent French gâteau for your pal saving up for a vacation to Paris? A drip cake to wow your kids? A no-fuss icebox cake for a poolside gathering? Cupcakes for a large group? We have a solution for any sort of birthday celebration.
It’s your celebration, so adorn it with buttercream ruffles and display it on a beautiful cake stand, empty it out and stuff it with candies, or cover it with sprinkles and serve it directly from the pan.
