With so much on the agenda for 2012, celebration cake recipes could very well prove to be an excellent idea. After all, we have had the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and we also have the world’s biggest sporting event – the Olympic Games – to look forward to.
If you are looking for ideas on celebration cake recipes, there are plenty of places for you to look. For example, you might want to head down to your local library where you can always expect to find an excellent selection. If you have access to the internet, you could also try looking here, and again, you’re guaranteed to find a myriad different ideas. You might even want to ask around friends and families as there are usually some of the best ideas and recipes closer to home than you may have first imagined.
Some of the ideas you might like to be thinking about at this time include the old and traditional favourites. The humble Victoria sponge is easy to make and always proves to be popular. There is nothing stopping you from decorating the finished cake more elaborately and in keeping with the occasion you are specifically looking to honour.
If you really want to go down the Olympics route: in other words, look at the international nature of this event, why not research recipe ideas from different countries. With this in mind, you might like to look just across the channel to the continent where you can find some gorgeous ideas from countries like Germany, Austria, France etc. The Black Forest gateau or Sachertorte (a very rich and sumptuous chocolate cake) are always immensely popular.
In short, the world really will be your oyster when it comes to celebration cake recipes in 2012. You can choose to be as adventurous as you want here. On the other hand, you may just fancy a couple of simple but nice cakes for a particular occasion; there is nothing to stop you from doing exactly this and many of the basic cake recipes can tend to be the biggest hits.
