19 Celebration Cakes That Have a Whole Story Behind Them
There are people who think it’s easier to do something once instead of trying it many times. And sometimes they make cakes to express their feelings and ideas.
We can’t hide that we have a sweet tooth here at Bright Side. And we also love to laugh, as 10 minutes of giggling aloud can burn as many calories as there are in a small piece of chocolate. This article has it all, and in the bonus section, you’ll find out why it’s not so easy to make an inscription on a cake.

This cake is for teachers at a child development center.
“We attended classes there together with our children for a few months. The teachers and mentors struck us with their sympathy, calmness, and patience. So we wanted to make a gift for them. I had to think a lot about how the cake should be decorated, and I didn’t like any of my ideas. Suddenly, I saw this mother rabbit hugging her babies. She’s the embodiment of tenderness. And since it was Christmas time, I decided to add spruces made of meringue and snowflakes.”
“This order gave me a chuckle.”
“A stained glass cake for my high school art teacher whose favorite medium to work with is glass!”
“The surprise birthday cake my husband had made for me!”
The inscription on the cake: “I’m too young to die and too old to eat off the kids menu! What a stupid age I am.”
“This cake was for my friend/co-worker’s surprise birthday party at work. I made a surprise heart inside.”
