A 40th birthday is a great time to celebrate! If you’re going to be throwing a birthday party for someone who is reaching that milestone, here are some 40th birthday cake ideas for fabulous cake possibilities.
First, consider the old standby. A simple cake should work for this one, but have the number 40 written as big as possible. Then, surround the edges of the cake with 40 candles. Don’t forget to light them. And don’t forget to have a fire extinguisher standing by.
Second, why not try a photo reproduction cake? These are becoming more and more popular and they can be very beautifully done. You’ll need a favorite photograph of the birthday gal or guy. Maybe one with the spouse, or even with the kids. Phone around to local bakeries to find one that has the capability of turning the photo into a cake topper. They’ll make an actual edible photo to put on top of the cake. Most cakes I’ve seen like this are real conversation pieces. Everyone loves them. And then you get to eat it, and it’s always fun to see who gets to eat Uncle Larry’s head.
Third, try the hobby angle. Does your brother like to fish? Then, have a cake decorated with a fishing theme. Does your aunt like to golf? Golf-themed cakes can be super cute. There was a very beautiful cake at my local bakery that was decorated with shoes and handbags for a woman who loved shopping. Whatever the hobby, the bakery can do it!
Next, you can’t forget the “Root for the Hometeam” cake. Does your family love the Razorbacks? A cake in the shape of a hog, covered in bright red icing will always make people happy. And then you get to make fun of everyone because after they eat the icing, their lips and mouth will be bright red for the rest of the day. Any team colors or logos will make a super 40th birthday cake really special.
Lastly, don’t scoff at the tried and true tombstone/over-the-hill cake. Yes, it’s been done and overdone. But it also makes people laugh every time. And, truly, the 40th birthday is a great time to poke a little fun.
Whatever cake you choose, make sure to take a picture. Because the recipient is going to remember this birthday for a long time!
