A common question we get here at Sofia’s Cakes: “What are my options for a birthday cake?”
In cases like these, clients may have found a birthday cake design in one of our cake galleries:
- Birthday (and special occasion) cake pegs for kids
- Birthday (and special occasion) cake pegs for grown-ups
The short of it is, you can have any chosen design as:
- A 1-tier cake
- A 2-tier cake
- A cupcake tower (1-tier cake + cupcakes)
- A 3-tier cake
Let’s get into each option in detail.
One-tier cakes are great for small birthday parties, usually more intimate private gatherings, and are frequently character-inspired.
Typical size is 8×3″ or 7×4″ round, but may also be requested in a square cut.
Cost for a 1-tier birthday cake in fondant or buttercream starts at Php2200.
Most of the cakes we work with are 2-tier cakes, and these are usually commissioned for baptisms or christenings, 7th birthday parties, and even for debuts, anniversaries, and other special occasions.
2-tier cakes are ordered for larger-sized parties, if you have a headcount of about 30 to 60 guests.
Cost for a 2-tier celebration cake varies:
- A small-sized 2-tier cake (4×4″ 7×4″) starts at Php2500.
- A regular-sized 2-tier cake (5×4″ 8×4″) starts at Php3000.
- A large 2-tier cake (6×4″ 9×4″) starts at Php3500.
For 2-tier cakes, both tiers are made of real cake. Use of original toys, action figures or playsets is optional.
Cupcake towers are particularly popular for kiddie parties, as they allow for easier handling and distribution. Cupcakes also give an added design element, which is great for styling candy stations or dessert stations.
Cupcake towers have a 1-tier cake (as detailed above), and can have 25, 50, or even as many as 100 cupcakes on the tower.
- 25-pc cupcake tower: price starts at Php3500.
- 50-pc cupcake tower: price starts at Php4500.
- 100-pc cupcake tower: price starts at Php6900.
A 3-tier cake is usually meant for grand occasions, such as debuts or anniversaries. Many of these designs are patterned after our Tagaytay wedding cakes, only adjusted to match the desired color palette or motif.
Our typical 3-tier celebration cake has the approximate sizes: 6×5″ 9×5″ 12×5″. The entire middle layer (9×5″) is made of real cake.
Prices start at Php5900.
