1. Floral

Flowers on a cake is one of the all-time classic birthday combinations. Almost any type and colour of flower can be made out of gum paste or buttercream – whether or not it's in season. BONUS: If it is in season, use the real thing!

If you love a floral bouquet and buttercream, join our Buttercream Flowers Class to learn how to pipe realistic dahlias, roses, forget-me-nots and more.

2. Sprinkles

Nothing says BIRTHDAY quite like SPRINKLES! They come in a huge variety of colours, shapes and combinations. Some of our favourites are edible-gold-dusted jimmies, pearl dragees and the classic rainbow nonpareils.
Use sprinkles in funfetti cake, as decoration or in a sprinkle surprise explosion!
