Some Of Our Favorite
80th Birthday Cake Ideas

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.  

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.
