trending birthday cake designs

Cakes have marked milestones for many generations. They have evolved over the decades and have stood the test of time as a symbol of love and giving. A cake can give any occasion a festive flair with its impeccable versatility.

However, finding the perfect cake is often tedious. A new trend fleets past social media every moment of the day and it is toilsome to keep up with them.

We’ve compiled a list of some of the trendiest designs 2024 has seen to help you find your perfect cake. 

Minimalist Cakes

In cake designs, minimalism is a unique and time-tested method. Unlike traditional cakes, this one is understated, which makes it stand out. The cakes are usually dressed only in icing and are minimally embellished and this demeanour makes it easy on the eye. You can tailor the shapes, colors, and flavors according to the occasion.


An unusually shaped cake with a bold smudge speaks volumes.  Gradient ombre effects could be used to achieve a more austere effect. It's especially beautiful at a classy, color-themed event where you'd rather let the cake speak for itself. Consider blending several pastel colors if one is too stark for you. Toujours’ Rainbow Minimalist Cakes with a subtle splash of color adds elegance and class to any social gathering.

Hand-Painted Cakes

Hand-painted cakes are as artistic and creative as the person who painted them; imagination is their limit. It transcends pastels and splodgy hues to portray floral still-lifes and elaborate expressions. In the past, hand painting on cakes was relegated only to fondant canvases but now extends to buttercream, whipped cream and cream cheese frostings.


The watercolor cake is one of the classic hand-painted cakes. As is, it looks stunning and can be used as a base for any kind of cake design. Toujours' Watercolor Rose Cake is the perfect example of this. A modern twist on the classics is the textured art cake and the monochromatic ombre ruffle cake. The fun yet elegant design makes for a good show stopper at social events. 

Bohemian Aesthetic

Bohemian-inspired cakes are an effortless way of adding class to an event. They use a palette of earthy tones and hues to create a refined, cultivated ardor for a social event. The naked sponge cake is a vogue take on this aesthetic. The traditional recipe calls for Victorian sponge cake, covered in little to no frosting on the sides.

A woven textured cake deviates from the naked sponge cake. It accentuates elegance and makes a confident statement piece. Its unconventional texture is credited to intricate icing designs on the exterior of the cake and makes an aesthetic ground for minimal cake decor.

Pinata Cakes

The possibilities are endless when it comes to pinata cakes. It has a solidified chocolate exterior and can be customized to fit any occasion and can hold within it anything you desire- cakes, cupcakes, cookies, greeting cards, and gifts. This is a fantastic way to impress someone you care about and smashing a cake provides a much more memorable cutting ceremony.


This trend started with a heart-shaped pinata cake on Valentine's Day, then expanded to globes, half-spheres, animal heads, and even cakes. Toujours's Cupcake Pinata Cake is a great choice for any celebration. It conceals a range of sinful chocolate treats and a delectable cake of your choosing. 

Statement Décor

An elegant decorative piece can add an air of sophistication to a simple cake and leave a lasting impression. Isomalt sails have recently taken social media by storm. A sugar substitute, isomalt makes clear cake decorations that are aesthetically pleasing. Classic tinted isomalt sails are known to add a touch of elegance to a minimalist cake or social event. Similarly, Chocolate Sails can add a romantic touch to your cake. The soft velvety chocolate emulates Isomalt sails and adds an element of grace to a minimalistic cake. Toujours’ Chocolate Sails Cake is a testament to the class and elegance of this piece.


Two-tier Celebration Cakes

Whether it’s a birthday, anniversary, or simply a new beginning, every occasion calls for a celebration cake. Two-tier cakes have become the new trendsetter for making all celebrations bigger and better. From decorations like shards, floral pipes, themes, and customisations to standard or unique ways of setting up the two cakes, the design possibilities are unlimited. Two-tier confections make a sweet surprise for those who believe that there’s no such thing as too much cake.


Mini Cakes

If there’s anything better than one cake, it is four cute little cakes! An assortment of mini cakes is a great gift for those friends or family members with a sweet tooth. Select decorations that go well with the occasion, simply have hand-piped personalised messages, or have a mix of both! The mini cake designs will come together effortlessly and make hearts melt.

An event can also be elevated to a higher level of the class by incorporating an element of nature into the cake. Crystalized or edible flowers make tasteful ornaments to minimalist cakes as they add a whole new dimension of flavor and guise. Toujours' Ivory Rose Cake offers a range of exquisite flavors and an artistic floral arrangement on an aesthetic cake.
