Birthday Cake Trends 2019

We stopped and spoke with Teresa from She Baked about what the top trends in birthday cakes are for 2019 and these are the results.

  1. Drip cakes

Drip cakes are popular with all ages and for all different celebrations.  It’s not hard to guess why, who doesn’t want to scoop up dripping icing with their finger!



  1. Lolly tops

Perfect for kids and kids at heart. Topped with anything from lollypops, to chocolate, and all manner of sweet treats. These tempting towers are certainly a delight.

  1. Rainbow

Ok, rainbow pretty much anything still goes. Rainbow inside, rainbow icing, rainbow toppers. Bright rainbows, pastel rainbows. They will always be a crowd pleaser.

  1. Naked cakes

These started to appear in 2018 and 2019 will see the naked trend continue for the teen to twenty something scene. It’s casual elegance will keep it on trend for a while to come.

  1. Unicorn

We haven’t seen the back of the unicorn craze. Not only as kids come to the age where unicorns are life, cake makers are adopting and adapting the trend to many other animals. Teresa has herself made a llama, horse, and bunny in the same style.



6 Cookie numbers

The decorated cookie burst on to the scene and for those with birthdays after its peak and with cookie number fomo the trend will stick around. This is a great trend for significant number birthday parties too.

We’d like to thank Teresa of She Baked for allowing us to use the photos of her beautiful cakes.

  • We booked a Bop till you Drop disco party for my daughters 5th birthday and it was fantastic! We had 14 little girls dancing and singing their hearts out. The party was utterly perfect! Anisa was so much fun and her energy endless. She kept the kids captivated from start to finish. They had such a fantastic time. I will be raving about this for a while I can promise you.

  • Thank you Bop Till You Drop for the amazing entertainment you gave to all the children at my daughters 6th birthday party. All the kids had an amazing time singing and dancing, with parents coming up to me at the end of the party or texting me to let me know how much of a great time their kids had at the party, and it was all thanks to your team. They made my daughter feel very special on her day!

  • We just had a Bop Till You Drop Science Party today with 14x 5 year olds, and they all loved it! Volcanoes, rockets, magic milk, slime. What could be better? They put on lab coats and were able to participate in the experiments. My daughter really liked Shannon, our Bop Till You Drop Host. Thanks so much Shannon! Much credit to her for being such a patient, engaging, and energetic host. We have now had 2 great experiences with BTYD. Thank you!

  • What a fantastic party you created. I literally just booked the hall and brought the food and you guys made it a party!!! Disco lights, microphones and a song choice that was perfect for all the 7 year olds plus the few younger ones we had at the party. The energy of your hosts was amazing!!! They didn’t stop dancing and jumping the entire time and it made the entire party so easy for me as every single one of the kids was completely engaged in the party the entire time!!!
