white & blush birthday cake ideas that are simple & chic

According to Julia Child, “a party without cake is just a meeting”. I think this is especially true for birthdays! The first thing that comes to mind, when I think of a birthday cake, is a vanilla cake with white frosting and pink piping so light, that it is blush.

In case you haven’t noticed, colour isn’t really my thing. On that note (when done right) I really love a very light ballerina pink blush. I may have also done ballet for 10 years.

This year, for my birthday party with the girls, I outsourced a cake from Jaide and Joel’s Bakery. Jaide also happens to be my best friend’s sister and I adore her dearly.

Normally I’d make by own cake, but I had vegan guests coming. While recipe testing, for a gluten free and vegan cake, was definitely not on my birthday week agenda, the Italian in me needed to see that everyone was able to enjoy a slice of cake.

I ended up ordering a vanilla cake with white vanilla frosting and blush pearl detailing. I also paired the cake with this sparkly white cake topper that I found on Etsy.

Ordering the cake not only took care of both dietary restrictions, but it was SO good. This is coming from a cake snob.

So yes, it was $50 well spent.

Nonetheless, below are some of the photos that I gathered for ideas on how I wanted my cake to be decorated for the party. I ultimately wanted something simple to tie in my party’s white and blush theme.
