Birthday Cake Decorations Tips For Any Budget!

There is no doubt that birthdays are special occasions, which is probably why people try as best as they could to keep it that way. One of the most elaborate things people get for birthdays, besides some ridiculously outrageous gifts, is the birthday cake. The price of decorated birthday cakes can range anywhere from fifty dollars to a few hundred dollars. But at any rate, or any budget you are working with, there are some very vital things that you should bear in mind to make sure that the birthday cake adds to the special occasion and is appreciated by the one person who it matters the most to; the birthday boy/girl. So here are some birthday decorating tips that will fit into any budget, sizeable or small!

Ever hear the expression, “it’s not what you say. It is how you say it”? Well the same principle applies to giving. It’s not what you give, but how you give it that will make any birthday cake loved and appreciated whether it required experts and blueprints or a mom, dad, sister, brother or friend who took the time to make you a specially decorated cake. A lightly decorated birthday cake that is given out of affection rather than obligation will convey how you truly feel about the special birthday person any day over a lavishly decorated cake! So when it comes to birthday cake decorations, cost should be the last thing to worry about because some things are expensive, but many other things are priceless!

Another tip for decorating a birthday cake is to remember who the cake is for. If it’s not for you or your birthday rather, then don’t get a cake that is shaped like your head and decorated to look exactly like you! It’s vital to make any birthday cake special for the person whose birthday it is. What’s the point if you spend a sizeable fee on a perfectly decorated birthday cake in the form of your favorite TV character? That would really be defeating the whole point of a birthday cake, so whatever the budget, make sure that the cake reflects the birthday boy/girl.

Any birthday cake, elaborately or modestly decorated, should not be the main focus of any birthday party. Many people who spend a lot of either time or money on a birthday cake and are proud of their accomplishment are usually guilty of obsessing over it. For instance, if a mother spends countless hours in the kitchen making and decorating a birthday cake for her kid and then brags on and on about it, it would probably would have been better if she’d just shell out $50 dollars and get the kid a regular cake and celebrate the kid’s birthday, rather than doing all that ‘work’ and celebrating her own accomplishment, or worse, celebrating the cake!

On a final note, it should always be borne in mind that, above anything else, birthday cakes should be fun! It doesn’t have to be decorated according to the Queen’s standards and it certainly should not be dull. Believe it or not, many people reckon that character birthday cakes or airbrushed picture cakes are fun no matter what. But sometimes it just gets dull, especially for kids who see the same things year after year. So remember, fun is the order of the day, or cake rather!
