5 amazing birthday cake ideas on TikTok

In the social media age, a cake is a piece of art that’s meant to be shared with the world.

When a simple grocery store sheet cake just won’t do, why not try one of these five creative and delicious birthday cakes? After all, these bakers prove that desserts can be high art, too.

1. Roblox cake

This gaming platform just got a lot sweeter. Using a cake comb, a block embosser and a lot of frosting, TikToker Liz Nicolaou (@loveisbakeable) transforms a standard cake into a gamer’s dream

2. Mini sprinkles cake


Happy birthday to me! And now I’ll eat this whole cake 😋💕 #birthdaycake #minicakes

♬ Birthday – Katy Perry

This tiny cake is perfect for a one-person celebration! TikToker Lindsey (@lindseybakedthis) specializes in adorable cupcakes and mini cakes, and decided to make one for herself on her birthday! The chocolate center, sprinkle frosting and pink drip topping come together to make a tiny, perfect cake. She even topped it with a single candle. Happy eating!

3. Castle cake 

Featuring fondant, ice cream cones and molds, this cake has it all! This castle takes a lot of time and artistry to create, and Mimo (@bakemydaymimo) delivers with an adorably delicious final product.

This adorable red T-Rex cake took a lot of patience and tools to make. Baker John (@johndenim) was inspired by Jurassic Park but wanted his cake to be a smaller, cuter take on a terrifying, havoc-wreaking dinosaur. 

5. ‘Starry Night’ cake 

This cake is the perfect treat for an art history lover. TikToker Sara (@artofsuga) really captured the Van Gogh painting. It almost looks too beautiful to eat. Viewers agree! Many TikTokers commented on the talent and artistry that went into this delicious masterpiece.
