There was just one flavor in the beginning but now we have a plethora of flavors available in the cake shops worldwide. We can define cake as a dessert that is baked in different flavors. Even though we can order cakes by visiting bakeries, now you have the luxury of ordering them online through e-commerce gift websites.

You can order a birthday cake for your naughty baby boy on his birthday in shapes he likes. The cake can be ordered in shape of a car, Batman, or even mickey mouse.  The only thing you have to do is select the flavor, color, and shape of the cake. Designer cakes like this will usually weigh at least 2.5 kgs. If you are planning a birthday party for your baby doll, a cake in the shape of the Barbie doll can be the best choice.
