80th Birthday Cake Ideas

80th birthday cake ideas will put the wow factor in your birthday celebration with the best cake ever! All eyes are on the cake as the Honoree blows out the candles and the guests sing Happy Birthday. Your 80th birthday cake must be as exciting and unique as the occasion, so take some extra time to plan.




Personalize the cake to your Honoree.

Your job as the host is to be sure this special cake is a reflection of the guest of honor.  Consider putting the Honoree's picture on top of the cake, a favorite flower, hobby or cake topper should put the biggest smile on everyone's face.  To further ensure the success of the cake, use a great color combination that extends the color scheme of the party to the cake.

Customize the taste of the cake.

The first choice would be the favorite cake of the birthday Honoree.  For instance, if the Honoree loves chocolate cake, make a special effort to order or prepare a chocolate lover's dream cake.  Or consider using different flavored layers to make an incredibly impressive cake presentation.
