Celebrate that special someone in style! Art & Home has curated a collection of stunningly beautiful birthday cakes to help inspire your baking passions and delight to the guest of honor.
It’s not the candles that make the cake (nor how many candles happen to be on that cake), it’s what is inside – and outside – that counts.
In truth, a few of these cakes may not “actually” BE birthday cakes, but stick a few candles in them and – BOOM – suddenly they are birthday cakes!
An Exquisite Collection of Beautiful Birthday Cakes
From delightfully layered cakes to exquisite frosting and beyond, this collection provides some truly unique and wonderful cake baking and cake decorating ideas to celebrate one more year in the life of someone special.
I am neither a birthday cake baker nor a birthday cake decorator, so if you’re looking for recipes or how-to articles, you’ve come to the wrong place.
However, if you’re looking for eye-candy or visual inspiration for creating your next birthday cake masterpiece, you’ll find a huge collection of truly eye-popping designs.
Beautiful Black & White Birthday Cake
An absolutely stunning creation, this stark birthday cake screams elegance!

Galaxy of Fun Birthday Cake
What little boy (or adventurous little girl for that matter) wouldn’t love this space-inspired Birthday cake?
White Chocolate Lace Collar Birthday Cake
This cake would take some time and skill to create, but it is truly stunning.
Ribbons of Pale Blue Icing Birthday Cake
Perfect for a Spring birthday party, this delightful cake uses layers upon layers of blue icing ribbons to create a delightfully festive yet elegant birthday cake design.
Beautiful Butterfly Garden Cake
The combination of the butterfly garden motif and the unique spiral cut of the cake layers makes this birthday cake truly special.
Floating Pastel Butterfly Cake
Keeping with the butterfly theme, this cake uses a fairly basic white cake as a backdrop, but it’s the kaleidoscope of butterflies that makes this beautiful birthday cake remarkable.
Princess Castle Cake
Definitely NOT your everyday birthday cake!
Fruit Cornucopia Birthday Cake
A waffle cone holds an overflowing abundance of sweet goodness, creating a dramatic contrast against the crisp white cake.
The Ooopsie Doodle Cake
I love the unique angles of this very colorful cake. All topped with love.
Square Tiered Chocolate & Field Berry Cake
Normally when you see a tiered cake, the tiers are round. This one bucks that trend with stacks of square chocolate cakes, festooned with field berries.

This birthday cake looks like it was inspired by some of the top fashion designers in the world. Elegance and beauty all baked into a single cake.
Exposed Edge Chocolate Strawberry Cake
For those who want something a little lighter on the frosting, this cake forgoes the exterior frosting for an array of strawberries.

The best of two desserts combined into one fun and fancy birthday cake. Perfect for kids, but adults would love this too!

For those with a love of Spanish dances, this bold & beautiful birthday cake celebrates the birthday girl’s love of the Flamenco. Also perfectly suited for the Fashionista in your life!
