1 Topsy-Turvy Colors

This is one of the cutest cakes I've ever seen. And as you'll see, topsy-turvy designs are extremely popular for sweet 16 birthday cakes – maybe because it's such a fun, topsy-turvy time!

2 Zebra Bling

See? This one incorporates zebra print as well, along with quite a lot of dazzle.

3 Fun and Flowers

Fun and Flowers Via Claudine: Sweet 16 Birthday Cake

These flowers are absolutely gorgeous. The icing work is lovely as well, but I'd maybe consider a slightly different design for the 16.

4 Frilly Ombre

Frilly Ombre Via Sweet 16

This cake is exquisitely feminine, and so pretty. You could get a design like this in any color palette, but the ombre is a must.

5 Tiffany Blue

This shade of blue is extremely popular for sweet 16 cakes. The overall look is so sweet!

6 Camo Crazy

Camo Crazy Via Sweet

I love that this cake uses camouflage along with the pink. It proves that girls aren't all the same, and some of us love being outdoors, going hunting and fishing, and accessorizing our rhinestones with camo.

7 Neon Fun

It's a great idea to choose a cake with crazy colors. You really want them to pop!

8 Sweet Stuff

I'm all over those lollipops, those are gorgeous. Of course, the feathers lend a super fun touch as well.

10 Damask Cake

Damask Cake Via Cakes, Cupcakes & Cakepops

I adore damask, so I would've loved this cake at 16. Would you choose this color palette?

11 Flowery Cake

Flowery Cake Via You have to see Rosette ...

You're a daisy if you do! This proves that you don't necessarily need three tiers to have a gorgeous cake.

12 Superstar

Superstar Via Custom Sweet 16 Cakes NJ ...

This is a great way to make any 16 year old feel like a star! I love the geometric shape as well.



Animal print makes a great choice for birthday cakes, and zebra print is particularly popular. I love the color combination here.


BLING and BOWS Via Cakes

There is a lot of dazzle on this cake. I also love the color scheme, which is so feminine.

15 Roses and Bling

Roses and Bling Via Sweet 16

The colors on this cake are so sweet. It's more antique looking than the above cake, but the bling keeps it fresh.

16 Skyline Cake

This is really stunning. The design on this is gorgeous, especially that skyline.

17 Purple Craze

Purple Craze Via Sweet 16 birthday cake

Here's another topsy-turvy piece, but the color makes it awfully royal. The purse detail is quite fierce.

Are you a fan of masquerades, or are you buying a cake for someone who loves a good masquerade? This would be excellent for a costume-themed party.

From the quilting to the flowers, this is gorgeous. It's perfect for anyone who loves pastels.

Cupcake towers are still hugely popular. This one is great because it also includes an actual cake.

21 Cake or Present?

Is it a cake, or is it a gift? It's both, and it's super pink, too!

22 Pink Damask

I'm still wild about the damask! Why does it look so good with pink?

Here's another take on Tiffany blue, and it is stunning! I love the way the cake design incorporates the gift.

The color palette on this cake is really one-of-a-kind. Love pink as I do, this is a welcome change.
