Birthday Cakes

Who doesn’t love a birthday party! There’s nothing better to cheer a person than being surrounded by their friends and family on their birthday.

50 Topsy Turvy Birthday CakeYou’ll also want the birthday cake to be as special as the day itself.

The cake not only has to look spectacular, but must taste divine too. Your choices range from traditional fruitcake to delectable red velvet, all layered with delicious filling. Keep in mind that very soft cakes, like gateaux, mousse or cheesecake, are not suitable as they will not support the decoration.

Theming Your Cake

You might like to choose a theme that honours your birthday guest’s favourite hobby, colour or sporting activity. And the inscription can be as simple as ‘Happy Birthday’ and their name, or something more personal.

Perhaps you would like a cake in a particular shape – for instance a ball for a rugby-mad sports fan.  These are ‘sculptured’ cakes and you can see more examples in our novelty cake gallery.

How much will it cost?

The cost of a cake is in direct proportion to the amount of time spent on decoration, and bespoke sculptured cakes take more time and require more ingredients (and more wastage). If budget is a consideration, then we can achieve a wonderful result with one of our dessert cakes decorated with your choice of theme  – plus you will get more cake for your money!

Just Desserts Christchurch is perhaps best known for our birthday and celebration cakes, because each cake is as unique as the person it is made for. Traditional designs or something completely new, we guarantee a birthday cake that will not only taste great, but will look fabulous too!
