Though the cupcake trend doesn't seem to be going anywhere, with cupcakes now replacing cakes at many events, if you prefer the traditional method of slicing a cake with the ability to make the slice as big or small as you want it, and the ability to choose between the middle piece or the edge piece, with just the right amount of frosting for your tastes, Hello Cupcake now has the perfect treat for you (and your friends, family, co-workers, guests, etc.) with its new line of Celebration Cakes.
Available in 6", 8"and 10" rounds or Half Sheets, Hello Cupcakes new Celebration Cakes can be made in 10 different cake flavors, topped off with fondant and/or 16 different butter creams.
If you like the look of fondant decorations in simple, clean, and modern designs, you may choose between one of the seven designs below, though Hello Cupcake is happy to work with customers to custom design the perfect cake. (Please note: Hello Cupcake specializes in simple, modern designs, not 3D carvings of the White House, though they can make you a white house shaped fondant decoration).
If you prefer just a simple cake topped with frosting, Hello Cupcake has options for you too.

"Birthday Cake" Vanilla Cake with Vanilla Butter-cream

Coconut Cake with Coconut Cream Cheese Frosting and Toasted Coconut
These cakes may look too pretty to eat, but you will only think that for so long. I was able to sample each of the 5 cakes above.
The Gluten-Free Chocolate was a standout, and was essentially a fudge, though much lighter and creamier than a typically fudge bar. I normally stay away from chocolate on chocolate, but this cake was amazing.
The Coconut and Carrot Cakes were both very rich and dense.
The Vanilla Butter-cream on this Vanilla Cake was a tad too sweet for me.
The Lemon Cake with Strawberry Buttercream was my second favorite cake behind the Gluten-Free Chocolate. Fruit flavored cakes are typically my go-to cakes, and this one did not disappoint. The lemon cake was fluffy, and the strawberry butter-cream was not too sweet.
