Be it your boyfriend, fiancé, husband, father, son or brother, all love to be pampered with yummy cakes on their birthdays! There are myriads of theme cakes you can try out.

Theme Cakes

Besides focusing on the flavor, you can also highlight the cake by giving it a nice theme depending on the likes of your loved ones. If they love camping more than anything in the world, get a camping theme cake.

Theme Cupcakes

Cupcakes are great for birthday parties, as it eliminates the need to slice the cake. If your loved ones love football, baseball, etc., decorate it accordingly. Place it on a cupcake stand and your birthday centerpiece is good to go!
