OMG, I’m in love with these gorgeous number cakes. They are a wonderful alternative to the traditional birthday cake.  Today I am sharing both beautifully decorated number cakes as well as tips on how to make them.

Number Cake Using a Mold

Lekue silicone cake molds are available in numbers 0-9.  You can create your own number combination for a special birthday party celebration.  An easy yet elegant way to decorate a cake is with a variety of berries.   I love the look of leaving the leaves on the strawberries.

I found this picture floating around Pinterest, however the link attached to the photo was not a working site.  I wanted to share it because I feel it helps to see how they put the actual cake together to form the number.

As you saw above, you can form cupcakes into the shape of your desired number.   It makes it easy to serve as no cutting is required.  The number 2 cake above is festive with the floral pattern on both the cake and the serving board.

In need of a large serving board?  You can use a large piece of cardboard or corrugated poster board and cover with foil.

The patterns below will help you decide how many cupcakes you will need to create the desired number.  Depending on the size you want, you can use either regular sized cupcakes or mini cupcakes.
