Celeste of @shemadecake: Her celebration cake had to have all the birthday things! Which meant it had to be the ultimate birthday flavor, funfetti which she paired with an Oreo Swiss meringue buttercream. Her plan for the design was for it to be fun, but also be modern and elegant. We think she did the a splendid job achieving all of these! Celeste choose our party pastel nonpareils to be featured in her bold and beautiful wide stripe that goes down her cake. Celeste likes to include flowers on most of her designs. She dusted white roses with pineapple yellow luster dust, very berry pink luster dust and summer sky light blue luster dust to add a fun pops of color. Who knew you could use our luster dust that way?! To top the cake she wanted to include as many toppers as she could. Her choice of Sweet Tooth Fairy's mini confetti balloon toppers, iridescent star cake toppers and tall pastel rainbow birthday candles work perfectly with the roses and make for one special celebration cake!
Why do you love to make cakes? I love making cakes because it is such a creative challenge and I love seeing people’s faces when you bring them something so special made just for them!
What is your favorite cake to enjoy? I love so many cake flavors it’s hard to pick just one! But my favorite is probably chocolate mud, which is a really rich Australian chocolate cake, it’s kinda like a brownie but even denser.
Hillary of @cakeygnome: She wanted her celebration cake to be whimsical, girly, colorful, fluffy and fun! I She loves anything with random sprinkles and rainbows which is her preferred way to celebrate! This cake is Cake by Courtney’s peach crisp cake with a yummy peachy filling and the most fluffy buttercream In the world. Staying true to her style she embellished her fun birthday cake with our sky blue nonpareils, bright pastel mini sequin sprinkles and rainbow sugar toppers. The top of the cake is decked out in more sprinkles, iridescent star cake toppers and tall rainbow birthday candles.
Why do you love to make cakes? Birthday cakes are my absolute favorite kind of cake to make! My favorite thing about cake decorating has to be the creative outlet it lets out of me! I dream in rainbows and sprinkles and unicorns are just bottled up inside of me! Cakes give me a way to get all this out for the world to see and enjoy!
What is your favorite cake to enjoy? I would have to say SallyBakingAddiction vanilla cake is hands down my favorite cake to eat. I have eaten an entire vanilla cake of Sally’s...and I’m not even ashamed!
Leanne of @mayandmariebakingco: This is a double-chocolate cake, filled with raspberry buttercream and iced in vanilla Swiss meringue buttercream. I filled the mini jewels candy mold, jewels chocolate mold and silicone numbers lollipop mold with white chocolate and brushed them with super pearl white luster dust to create the “jewelry” on the side of the cake, the accents beside the cake and the fabulous cake toppers! To top this wonderful celebration cake, I added a white-chocolate drip, sprinkled Sprinklefetti jewel tone sprinkle mix, created color-swirled gems using the silicone gem candy mold and finished it off with macarons and big icing swirls using Ateco jumbo frosting tips.

Courtney of @bellysbakeshop: This whimsical shag-tastic cake screams PARTY to me! I've been dying to create a shag cake and this was a perfect opportunity to do so and have some fun with different kinds of frosting tips! I was mega-inspired by the colorful party decor offered by Bakers Party Shop and just knew I had to make a celebration cake that would complement the fun aesthetic! My cake is birthday confetti with edible cookie dough filling (contains no eggs, used heat treated flour) and frosted with Vanilla Swiss meringue buttercream and topped with fiesta small glitter birthday candles. To set the stage for my party cake I used the Hip Hip Hooray mini banner set as the backdrops and scattered pretty pastel confetti on the tabletop.

Amanda of @afewcakes: For my celebration cake I made a confetti cake, with confetti buttercream filling and went with a unicorn theme, but not like the typical unicorn cakes that you see. I knew it needed to be set on the pink Sweet Tooth Fairy cake stand for this special occasion. Lollipops were used as the cake toppers because they're something new I've been excited to try out on cakes. Bakers Party Shop carries a variety of hard candy molds that were perfect for design I had in mind and I used iridescent paper straws at the stick which helps them stay put better in a cake because of the hole. Using a variety of lollipop shapes created the unique layered look to my birthday cake. The Pastel Unicorn Rainbow Sprinklefetti sprinkle mix went perfectly with this theme and embellished the top of the cake, the lollipops and cupcakes.
What is your favorite cake to make? My favorite thing about making cakes is definitely the decorating part, getting to see all the preparations from the week come together and my vision (or sketch) come to life. Also getting to see my clients reaction when they see their cake is the cherry on top!
What is your favorite cake to eat? My favorite cake flavor is Neopolitan.

Shay of Cakes by Shay @everyday.sprinkles: Bakers party shop is my go-to cake & party supply shop! Not only do they have the cutest cake decorating items (just look at that sparkly Happy Birthday cake topper) but they have great customer service and I love supporting small businesses! I was so excited to make a cake for their 10th birthday. My cake is a chocolate and vanilla marble cake filled with homemade strawberry sauce frosted with vanilla bean buttercream. I love adding texture to my cakes which was done by painting on buttercream in a pretty shades of pink and lilac. Then gold leaf and ombre lilac nonpareils were added. The finishing touch was adding fresh flowers to the top of the cake, blowing up some balloons and hanging a fun gold tassel banner. Happy 10th birthday Bakers Party Shop!
What is your favorite thing about making cakes? I started baking cakes and created @everyday.sprinkles just over a year ago. It started as a way to bring joy to my family and a fun hobby that has turned into a true passion. I have enjoyed learning and growing everyday through the cakes I make.
What is your favorite cake to eat? Vanilla with fresh strawberries and I love adding beautiful flowers to my cakes!
Manuela of @cakebymanu: For my celebration cake I made a vanilla cake with white chocolate Swiss meringue buttercream and filled with homemade raspberry purée. For the decoration of the cake I was inspired by polka dots, many polka dots which I used mini circle fondant cutters to punch out. The top and bottom edge of the cake is decorated with Sweet Pastel Sprinklefetti sprinkle mix. I used the 1.5" round lollipop mold and the heart lollipop mold to make chocolate and hard candy lollipops to decorate the top of the cake and add that extra special detail. Edible cake toppers make a cake even more special because it gives you two treats in one!
What do you love about making cakes? What I love the most about making cakes is that I get to express my creativity in every possible and new way with every cake.. and I get to eat it too!

Lilian of @sweetsbylily: My celebration cake is a delicious Confetti cake frosted with vanilla Swiss meringue buttercream. Bakers Party Shop has a huge selection of nonpareils. I picked out a few pretty pastel colors and scattered them on the cake along with strategically placing candy pastel rainbow sprinkles and candy white cloud sprinkles. For the top of the cake I used a large rainbow candy mold to make an edible cake topper. And what better way to share what this cake was for then to spell out "celebrate" on the cake using Sweet Tooth Fairy's cake letterboard set.
Why do you love to make cake? I'm a stay at home mom so I love making cakes because it's my way of destressing and taking some time to myself to create something beautiful.

What is your favorite cake to eat? My favorite flavor cake is chocolate caramel.
Johneris of @rosesmama_bakes: For my celebration cake I made vanilla sponge that is filled with quava compote and iced in cream cheese frosting. I love working with color and texture to create a layered look. Nonpareils were used on the painted buttercream and the top is decorated with flowers, a variety of hard candy lollipops I made using hard candy molds, the number 10 topper is made of chocolate from a lollipop mold and the final piece is the tall metallic gold party candles. My cake sets on the pink Sweet Tooth Fairy cake stand. Happy birthday Bakers Party Shop. I hope you love your cake!
Why do you love to make cakes? I love baking because, well honestly I started baking a year and a half ago after I had my little rose, as a way of having an income, while I take care of my daugther at home. I started learning and learning and I simply fell in love with baking, I just love it, I feel the talent runs in my family because my grandmother used to be a kid's birthday party stylist, and my mom is an event planner, decorator, interior designer. I love to see people's face when they see their cakes, each cake is unique and special, and I love that, to create different style depending the person.
What is your favorite cake to eat? I love chocolate.
Brittanie of @brittanie.bakes: Funfetti is the ultimate birthday cake flavor, and topped with sweet vanilla buttercream you can't go wrong! I'm a sucker for cakes that have toppings you can pick off and eat before slicing, so I added white chocolate covered popcorn with the brand new Hip Hip Hooray Sprinklefetti sprinkle mix! And seeing as how it's a birthday for the ladies who are Bakers Party Shop, Esther & Shauna, each little cake absolutely needed a lovely, metallic gold party candle. The Hip Hip Hooray mini banner set and mini hooray pennant garland where the final touches to my celebration cake presentation.
What is your favorite thing about making cakes? I love the versatility! So many of the same ingredients, but a few little changes in flavors or design and you can end up with something completely unique. I love creating the special cake that others celebrate their happiest moments with!
What is your favorite cake to eat? I'm a sucker for a dense carrot cake with cream cheese frosting! Best way to eat your vegetables, right?!
