"Inspiration for your
birthday cake decorating"

Birthday cake ideas, the internet is an endless resource when choosing a birthday cake design.

You can use photos of other peoples cake decorating ideas to take to a cake designer or as inspiration to make your own unique birthday cakes.

I have started a design idea list at the bottom of this page to help you come up with ideas for your own birthday cakes.

Fondant birthday cakes are very popular especially for that very special first birthday cake.

And it goes without saying that my chocolate cake recipes make delicious bases for any decorated cakes. At this link you will find recipes for my dark chocolate cake and white chocolate cake both of which I use as my birthday cake recipe base.

If you are looking at having a cake made by Inspired By Michelle cake flavours and contact details can be found on the Inspired By Michelle page.

All my cakes have generous layers of either dark chocolate or white chocolate ganache underneath the rolled fondant icing. You want to make your own cakes you can find both the ganache recipes in my fillings and frosting pages.

I love designing birthday cakes, sydney areas all covered as delivery or pick-up can be arranged. I have included some photos of my recent cakes to help you with your own birthday cake ideas - but remember the idea is to create a cake that is uniquely yours.
