Whether they are playing guitar in the garage and trying to go on the road or plastering their rooms with the latest teen idol, music is a huge part of any teen’s life. Music themed cakes can be in the shape of a guitar, be decorated with drums, or feature the image of a favorite pop star. Just take a peek at their most played songs on their MP3 to determine which type of music to feature.
For the teens that spend most of their free time roaming the mall or trying on endless outfit options a fashion themed cake is the perfect choice. A handbag or pair of shoes make great statement decorations for the top of the cake or represent all of their favorite shops with simple writing or a map of the mall.

Being a teenager is dramatic and often involves big dreams of becoming a star or at least meeting one so a Hollywood themed cake is a great option for any teen. Whether it’s a cake resembling a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame or a play on their favorite vampire movie or television show, a Hollywood themed cake is certain to make them feel like a star for the day.
The camaraderie of playing sports in high school or even just rooting for the same team as friends on either the local or professional level is incredibly valuable and bonding for teens. A sports themed cake featuring their favorite game or team is a great way to remind a teen just how important they are to their network of friends and teammates as well as their family.
