Mexican Theme Sweet 16 Cake

Sweet 16 cakes allow so much room for creativity. We’ve had so many different themes, and this cake is one of our favorites lately!

The sombreros, tacos, and blanket are all made of fondant! The floral and swirl decoration is hand drawn with buttercream inspired by the traditional Mexican embroidery used on clothing.

We made another version of this cake without the tacos and sombreros, focusing on the beautiful features of the embroidery pattern.

We’re looking forward to using some of these design elements in our Cinco de Mayo celebration coming up, too!

Hope this post gave you some inspiration for a Sweet Sixteen cake or any birthday cake!
