Band Cake Ideas

A band-themed cake is appropriate for a music or rock-star birthday party, a party celebrating a band's new album and other music- or band-related events. A band cake can take on many different styles to encompass various types of music and the bands who play it. Rock or jazz, punk or metal and even marching bands all can be features on a cake.

Band Character Drawing

A band cake can feature a character drawing of one member of the band or of the entire band. This type of cake is appropriate for a birthday or event that has a specific band as the theme. If a band has reached a goal or accomplished something big, such as getting a single played on a radio station, this cake would be a good choice. Use coloured icing to create heads and clothes and use black icing to add details such as eyes and hair.

Cake Topper

If you are having a specific band as a theme for a party, try to find small figurines or other items that can be used as a cake topper that represents the band. For instance, you can use the children's show "The Fresh Beat Band" as a theme for a children's party. Find small figures of the band members at a toy store or use stickers featuring the members as a cake topper. To use a sticker as a cake topper, attach the sticker to a piece of card stock and put a toothpick between the sticker and the card stock and insert it into the cake.

Band Logo

If the band you want to feature has a logo, use that logo on a cake. Choose a sheet cake and draw the logo on top. In the case of a school marching band, use school colours and an image of the mascot to decorate the cake. Add musical notes to the cake as well to indicate that the cake is to honour the band and not the school in general.

Other Band Cake Ideas

There are other ways to create a band cake. Place a band CD on the top of a cake. A round cake that is slightly larger than a CD works well for a band-themed cake. You can simply write the name of the band on the top of the cake and add musical notes or instruments onto the cake too. Other band cakes can include creating the look of a band poster or a ticket on the cake top. Use a picture of a band performing on stage. Utilise black silhouetted figures rather than specific people to feature a generic band. A cake shaped like an instrument is another way to feature a band. For instance, create a guitar-shaped cake and add the name of a band to the cake top.
