I am neither a baker, nor a cake decorator. My one and only foray into cake decorating was an Elmo cake six years ago for my daughter's second birthday. It was a fantastic flop. There was so much red food colouring in the icing that it stained the kids' hands and teeth.
Now I buy their birthday cakes. I usually order from my local bakery. A fresh, made-to-order, sponge slab cake with fancy icing is quite inexpensive. Michel's Patisserie has a large selection of reasonably priced celebration cakes or if you prefer an ice cream cake, Wendy's is the place to go.
Cupcakes are the trendy alternative to the traditional birthday cake. There is no cutting up or plates involved and they can be handed out at the birthday as party favours. To join the cupcake craze, visit Tabitha's Place Cupcakes & Celebration Cakes (Hamilton), The Cupcake Parlour (West End and Broadbeach), or the new kid on the block The Patty Cakery (Coopooroo). With cupcake flavours like Snow Bunny, Musk-a-teer, and Fairy Dust, it is sure to be a success.
Which do you prefer, the cake or the cupcake? Where do you think Brisbane's best birthday cake, or cupcake, is? Leave a comment and let us know what you think.

After looking for a Brisbane Wedding Cake Decorator, my wife and I decided to get our cake from Antonia's Cakes and Crafts. We arrived at her shop where she invited us in and gave us samples while showing us her Gallery. She was so beautiful and easy to deal with. Now we keep going back for our Birthday Cakes. Check her out, tell her Lucas sent you! www.cakesandcrafts.com.au
