Make anniversary celebrations memorable with unique cakes that are sure to form delectable centrepieces for the occasion. Tier cakes are popular for celebrating anniversaries, as they serve a large number of people and look grand for the occasion. For uniqueness, try serving cupcakes or sheet cakes decorated with images or numbers celebrating the anniversary occasion. Use fondant to cover cakes so that they appear neat. Fresh flowers also form an easy decoration when placed in the middle or sides of cake tiers.

Wedding Cake Replica

Anniversaries are perfect occasions to duplicate your wedding cake and rituals. Use your original wedding cake topper to bring back memories of the occasion. Describe your original wedding cake and give a picture of the cake to the cake decorator so she can replicate the cake you had at your wedding. Or, use your wedding's colour theme and a different cake flavour and design, if desired. If you are not serving a large party, replicate only the top tier of your wedding cake for the anniversary.

Number Cake

Number cakes are popular for celebrating milestone occasions like anniversaries and birthdays. Depending on how many people you are serving at your anniversary party, get a cake depicting the number of years you are celebrating, or get a regular sheet cake with the numbers written on top with frosting. Use number candles to represent the number of years being commemorated. For a grand look, use metallic silver or gold numbers and place them on the cake as additional decoration.

Edible Images

Edible images are the latest trend for all types of cakes. They are perfect for anniversary cakes, since they can depict the couple's old wedding picture, a recent photograph or even their honeymoon photograph. Bake two heart-shaped cakes and fill and frost them once they are cooled. Place an edible image of an old picture on one heart cake and an edible image of a recent picture on the second heart cake to show how the couple have grown together. Obtain an edible image by ordering it online and place it on the cake after frosting it smooth. Finish with a shell border on the perimeter of the cake and pipe a congratulatory message.

Anniversary Cupcakes

Cupcakes are another new cake trend for celebrating birthdays, anniversaries and special occasions. To make anniversary cupcakes, arrange prepared cupcakes on a cake board in the form of the number of years being celebrated. Frost the cupcakes all over to make a cupcake cake, and pipe decorative borders on the edges of the cakes. Alternatively, serve individually decorated cupcakes instead of a whole cake. Pipe a bunch of flowers on each cupcake and write the number of years beside the flowers. Place the cupcakes on a platter to serve as an attractive centrepiece.
