Sofia’s Cakes was at the Solaire Resort and Casino a couple of weekends back for Dr. Linnet’s 60th birthday celebration.
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.

Sofia’s Cakes was asked to put together a Minecraft-themed cake for Juan Alfonso’s 7th birthday party at the Sonera Clubhouse in Ayala Westvale in Alabang.
For a more personal touch, we’ve decided to provide original Minecraft action figures, as we’ve been told Juan Alfonso collects these. So we worked two sets onto the Minecraft cake. Continue reading A Minecraft Cake for Juan Alfonso’s Birthday
When putting together a birthday celebration in Tagaytay, there are quite a few things you need to put on your to-do list: party food, invitations, the program, games and activities for the day, the decor, giveaways and souvenirs, and quite possibly the most important thing of all– the birthday cake.
While Sofia’s Cakes Tagaytay-Amadeo Road specializes in custom wedding cakes, we also get requests for special birthday cakes, and cakes for other special occasions.
One-tier cakes are great– usually made of fondant, if you have a particular design in mind. By itself, it makes any social gathering a lot more festive. And if you want to scale up your party a bit more, you can always get more birthday cupcakes, additional dessert cakes, or even a themed candy-and-dessert station.
Here are twelve one-tier birthday celebration ideas you might want to use for your Tagaytay party planning efforts: Continue reading 12 One-Tier Birthday Cake Design Ideas
