Whether you're gearing up for a bowling-theme party for an adult or child, a bowling pin cake proves the perfect addition to the festivities. Understandably, you want your creation to rate as a strike, not a gutter ball. Fortunately, different cake ideas exist to appeal to anyone from a weekend baker to an aspiring cake designer.

Bowling Pin and Ball

Two sheet cakes and one round cake can serve as the foundation for a bowling pin and ball cake. A paper template of a bowling pin can help create an authentic-looking pin. A round pan makes a perfect pattern for the bowling ball. White and chocolate frosting, along with some authentic details, will create a creative cake that will definitely give you a strike with partygoers.

Simple Bowling Pin Cake

A simple solution is a large, flat cake complete with white frosting, which will present a blank canvas for the bowling theme. A bowling lane drawn in a contrasting colour of frosting -- with mini bowling pins in a strike formation at the end of the lane -- will make the cake's theme clear. A bowling-inspired message such as "You're 40? Un -- bowl -- lievable!" can tie everything together.

Double Pin Milestone Cakes

Two bowling pins cut out of two different sheet cakes can serve as a double pin sensation. White frosting and one or two fruit leather bands on the neck of each pin add authenticity, along with a single -digit number on each cake to denote the guest of honor's age. Those who haven't reached double-digits in age can still have double pins -- one pin with the single-digit age and one pin with a milestone message such as "Happy Birthday."

Extra Help

You can use any size sheet cake to cut out a bowling pin or ball -- it all depends on the number of people involved in the event. Paper templates of a bowling pin and ball will make cutting out the shapes easier. A small bowling pin-shaped cake would make a suitable display piece or a personal cake for the guest-of-honour, while a sheet cake decorated with a bowling theme could be served to the party attendees.
