52 Customized Birthday Cakes

From Cartoon Villain Cakes to Edible Droid Confections

— July 10, 2013 — Lifestyle
One of the best parts of planning a birthday party is choosing what kind of cake to have, and these cleverly customized birthday cakes are some fantastic examples of confections that have been made to replicate pop culture icons and Sci-Fi films.

Deciding to order a customized birthday cake is a great way to add some originality to a party. While buying cupcakes or desserts from your local corner store or market is the easy route, personalizing your cake with designs that reflect your style and interests is much more appealing and sentimental. From cakes designed to resemble characters from the Star Wars films to those shaped like haute couture handbags, these customized birthday cakes will definitely add a nostalgic and heartfelt touch to any celebration.
