Types of birthday cakes for 16th boys
Plain sheet cake
The first type of cake that we want to talk about is a plain sheet cake. A plain sheet cake can be purchased at most grocery stores and bakeries, but it’s also quite easy to make your own! If you choose not to purchase one or would like something more unique for the big day, there are many different styles of cakes available online from our website as well as other sites such as Etsy. You can order either custom designs made by artists who specialize in making decorated birthday cakes or even create your very own with their fun DIY design tool. These types of customized sheets will cost anywhere between $35-$250 depending on what you’re looking for and how much effort/time goes into creating them; however, if you don’t have time to make your own it’s always an option!
Sheet cake with decoration
The second type of cake that we want to talk about is a sheet cake with decoration. These are simply sheets cakes that have been decorated by professionals and can be found anywhere from $35-$250 depending on what you’re looking for in your design. Most places will offer custom designs made just for the birthday boy or girl as well as pre-made designs such as cartoon characters (i.e., Hello Kitty), pets, sports team logos, etc… You can also find many different types of decorations online if you’d like someone else to create something special for you without all the hassle! Cake Decorating Ideas has some great step-by-step instructions along with images to help you create your own masterpiece if baking isn’t really something you enjoy doing.

The third type of cake that we want to talk about is a novelty cake, otherwise known as the more “fun” cakes such as cupcakes or donuts with faces on them! These can be found at local bakeries and grocery stores for around $25-$30 depending on what design/theme you choose; however it’s still an option to make these yourself (which will cost anywhere from $0-20 depending on how much time goes into creating them). If choosing this route, there are many different tutorials online including images to assist in helping bring life back into plain vanilla baked goods and making sure they look just like their cartoon counterparts. While these cakes may not be as expensive as the other two types of cakes mentioned above, they are still a very popular option for young kids and teens to have on their big day.
Other simple small cakes – Boy 16th birthday cakes
Lastly, if you’re someone who just wants something simple such as an ice cream cake or cupcakes without faces on them we would suggest simply purchasing one from your local grocery store (i.e., Kroger) or bakery ($20-$30). Most bakeries will offer these along with plain sheet cakes that don’t require any special designs; however, there is also another great resource online known as Bake It Pretty where you can find pre-made decorated birthday cakes in both custom and pre-designed themes/designs starting at $45! This site offers many different options including the most popular cartoon characters such as Hello Kitty, Sesame Street (Bert & Ernie), Angry Birds, etc… for both boys and girls.
