custom made birthday cakesThere’s a lot of stress on parents when planning their child’s birthday party. Each is an important milestone on the way to adulthood, with a chance to create everlasting memories. So, parents work hard to get every detail right from the decorations right down to the birthday cake. Often, the party revolves around a particular theme. Having a special cake match the theme is essential to the overall success of the party. When searching for custom made birthday cakes for your child’s party, choose Ava’s Cupcakes.

Ava’s Cupcakes began in 2011 when Michelle Spell opened her first bakery to offer gourmet, fresh-baked cookies, cakes, and pastries. In 2012, Michelle competed and won season 4 of the “Food Network Cupcake Wars: I Love Lucy 60th Anniversary.” Additionally, The Daily Meal recently voted Ava’s Cupcakes as one of the best cupcakes in America.

With more than two decades of culinary experience, Michelle loves introducing consumers to new and exotic flavor combinations. Of course, she bakes up signature nostalgic flavors as well. Not only do the cakes look beautiful, but they taste delicious too. Making cakes for any occasion, including custom wedding cakes and kids birthday party cakes, there’s no limit to the exciting and unique options. Whatever the theme or idea, Ava’s Cupcakes can create a stunning custom cake with a delightful flavor to match.

Popular Theme Parties

Notably, to make the birthday memorable, many people like to throw a theme-based party. With an idea or concept at the core, all the decorations, games/activities and cake reflect the theme. Today, among girls, unicorn-themed parties are very popular. And princess or spa parties are those timeless classic themes that girls always love.  Among boys, popular themes are superheroes, Lego, or Pokemon. Additionally, the latest popular movie is always a good choice as well.

While getting decorations and paper goods to match the theme is easy, making a special themed cake is more difficult. That’s where Ava’s Cupcakes excels. As a mom of 4 children, Michelle understands the importance of getting the cake just right. Moreover, as an experienced pastry chef, she can create a stunning cake unique to your party theme.

Cost of Custom Cakes

Chiefly, bakers charge based on their experience and the difficulty of the cake. Typically, exotic flavors, as well as special dietary cakes such as vegan or gluten free cost more. In addition, the more ornate and challenging the design, the higher the cost. Lastly, the taller the cake or the more layers a cake has, the more expensive it is too. When you speak with Michelle, she will design exactly the cake you have in mind and give you a quote.

Of course, it’s important to order your cake as early as possible. Some bakeries recommend placing your custom cake order at least 2 months in advance. Michelle requests a minimum of 7 to 10 days in order to design and create a delectable, unique cake for your celebration.
