Do you need a Christmas cake idea?

Every party needs a cake, and Christmas parties are no exception.

Here are some fun cake designs to go with your Christmas party ideas.

Merry Christmas Cake

This cute Christmas themed cake would work for just about any party. Decorated trees, gifts (made out of squares of chocolate - yummy!), and a nice bow decoration around the outside of the cake. It is related to the season, but generic enough to work for any party - whether an adult Christmas party, one of the office, kids or teens.

Christmas Tree Cake

To make a cake like this, you can use a Christmas tree cake pan. There are several cake pans available in different sizes and materials, or you can bake a sheet cake and "carve" it to the desired tree shape.

This tree is decorated with sprinkles. Some other cake decorating ideas for decorations on a Christmas tree cake are to use jelly beans, gum drops, gummi bears, M&Ms and peppermints.

Nutcracker Cake

The Nutcracker ballet is so closely associated with Christmas!

To make a nutcracker themed cake, it could be very easy to just put a nutcracker on the cake. You can find them in all sizes at just about any store! The best buy that I have found is at the dollar store!  If you can find very small nutcrackers, you could place them all around the bottom of the cake.

Another idea that this cake uses is to decorate with figurines representing characters from the ballet. Characters to include could be the Sugar Plum Princess, the evil Mouse King, and of course the Nutcracker himself.

Doll Cake

Barbie Doll Cake

Barbie can make an appearance at your festivities - make her a beautiful dress in Christmas colors!

Other Fun Holiday Cakes

Another fun Christmas idea that we have an example of is to serve a snowman cake.

There are also very cute cake pans that you can purchase in all sorts of shapes!

Shapes include:

  • Candy Canes
  • Santa
  • Reindeer
  • Alpine Villages
  • Gingerbread Houses
  • Christmas Bears
  • Angels
  • Sleighs
  • Nutcrackers

You can also choose to create a favorite cake as a toy, such as ball, doll, or train.
