75th Birthday Cake

Celebrate the milestone with a cake

The 75th birthday is a major milestone in anyone's life, marking 75 years of living, learning, and growing. It's a celebration of a lifetime of experiences, and it's a time to reflect on the past and look forward to the future. This special occasion deserves a special celebration, and what better way to mark the occasion than with a beautiful and delicious birthday cake?

There are many different options to choose from when it comes to 75th birthday cakes. One of the most popular choices is a traditional birthday cake with buttercream and maybe even some edible decorations. These cakes are usually more favourable for a few reasons; firstly, they tend to be crowd pleasers, especially if you go for something like a Victoria Sponge cake. The second reason is that they can usually be easily adapted for a theme by adding decorations or toppers. The third, and possibly most important for a lot of people, they tend to be more reasonably priced.

Another option is a photo cake, which features a picture of the birthday person on the top of the cake. This is a great way to personalise the cake and make it a special, one-of-a-kind creation. You can choose any picture you like, and it can be printed directly onto edible paper using edible ink, which is then placed on an icing disc which is fixed to the cake with buttercream. This option is perfect for someone who loves taking photos and has many memories to share.

If you have an unlimited budget, then there are more options you can look into. For big celebrations with lots of family and friends to feed, a tiered cake might be the best option. Tiered cakes essentially consist of cakes stacked on top of cakes in different sizes. Usually, they are only two or three cakes tall, however, there are brave people out there who can create bigger tiered cakes with four or five, or more, cakes on top of each other. The benefit of tiered cakes is that you can have various flavour options in each tier, which means that most people will be able to have a slice of cake that is their preferred flavour. The alternative to a tiered cake is having several different cake flavours laid out as sort of a dessert table set-up.

Considering the style of cake is something that could be on your mind, should it be a naked cake, or fully decorated? Everyone is different, but as we mentioned above a simple cake often leaves room for flexibility. For instance, naked cakes can be easily adorned with flowers, toppers, or other edible decorations to make a classy cake or fit a theme. Fully decorated cakes are nice for extra special occasions, but not everyone is a fan of lots of fondant icing. You can obviously get fully decorated cakes that are covered in buttercream, but the issue you may find is that if it’s too hot, the buttercream will probably melt, and because buttercream tends to be soft, there’s more chance the decoration will be ruined in transit.

No matter what type of 75th birthday cake you choose, it's sure to be a hit. The key is to choose a design that reflects the personality and tastes of the birthday person. Whether you choose a classic, simple cake or a more elaborate and creative design, your cake will be a delicious and beautiful way to celebrate this special occasion.

Sponge has a great range of birthday cakes that would suit a 75th birthday, we mostly focus on simple cakes that taste great. That’s why we have a great range of flavour options available so that you can find their favourite flavour to present to them on their special day. Another thing to think about is whether or not they have a dietary requirement, sometimes it’s hard to find a cake that both suits a dietary requirement, as well as looks and tastes great. We have worked hard to create gluten free cakes, vegan cakes, and dairy and gluten free cake ranges that look and taste just as good as our standard cakes. This means that you have more options to suit your requirements for a 75th birthday.

If you want to give them an even bigger surprise on their big day, we also have some extra special cake options. Our Pinata cakes and Rainbow cake add an extra element; these cakes seem just luxurious in their appearance, covered in chocolate flakes, but when you cut and remove the first slice the surprise centre is revealed. The pinata cake reveals a cascade of chocolate beans when the slice is lifted away, while the rainbow cake reveals all of the coloured layers within the cake which is an equally nice surprise.

Whichever cake you decide to have as a 75th Birthday Cake, we’re sure you’ll find the perfect one to make them smile. And with Sponge, you’ll be pleased to know that we deliver all of our cakes across the UK. We also offer next day delivery on our birthday cakes when you order by 3pm. However, we do recommend selecting a delivery date a day or two in advance for a special occasion, in case there are any unforeseen delivery delays, but it’s good to know for any cake emergencies you may have.
