50th Birthday Cake with Photo


50th Birthday Cake with Photo

50th Birthday Photo Cake - send a photo on a cake to celebrate a 50th birthday. A great idea for a birthday cake for any 50th.

Use a photo from your phone or digital camera, or find pictures of the birthday girl or boy on Facebook or other social media site.

The "naked baby on a rug" photo is a popular choice for a 50th, or how about an old school photo with a dodgy haircut!

Our cakes are of the highest quality and taste as good as they look! The light sponge is superb with a moist, soft texture that melts in your mouth.

They are available in two flavours - classic sponge with raspberry jam & buttercream filling, or chocolate sponge with chocolate buttercream.

Choose from two sizes:

  • Medium (8 inch) measures 8 x 8 inches (20 x 20 cm) and serves 20 to 30 portions. 
  • Large (10 inch) measures 10 x 10 inches (25 x 25 cm) and serves 30 to 50 portions.

Of course the number of portions depends on how you cut the cake! Our guide is based on a slice from 2 to 3 inches by one inch.

We use only the best quality ingredients including free range eggs. Because the sponge is completely enclosed in the icing they keep very well. We guarantee they will stay fresh for a minimum of 5 days, but usually they last even longer.They are square in shape, covered in white sugarpaste icing and sit on a thick cake board with piped royal icing shells around the base. For full details please click on the Ingredients & Product Info link above.

Our cakes are made and iced by hand. Whilst we try to make each one as square and as flat as possible, there may be slight variations.

If you are sending this as a gift you can include a personalised gift card after you add it to the basket. You will be asked for the delivery address when you check out.

You can have up to four separate pictures on this item. Let us know if you would like them laid out in a particular order, or we will arrange them as we think best

You can upload your photo or logo when you add this item to the basket, or leave it until after your order is completed. In the basket you can upload any image file including JPG, BMP, GIF or PDF. If you want to send any other type of file, or if you want to send it later then please complete your order and make payment. On the order confirmation screen you will see a link to an upload page where you can then upload, email or post any kind of picture.

Here are a few pointers:

  • The better the quality of your original picture is, the better the finished result will be. The actual size of your picture is not important, we will enlarge or reduce it to fit.
  • If you send a very small picture then some quality may be lost if it needs to be enlarged. As a general rule, if it prints well on paper then it will print well on icing.
  • If you are scanning a photo, usually a resolution of 150dpi works best.
  • Black & White photos work just as well as colour.

FANTASTIC!! So far, I haven't been disappointed. The cake went down a treat and I was lucky to get a piece at all. Thank you.

Hi, I meant to mail earlier to thank you for the 50th Birthday cake that you provided for my sister's party on December 29th. Despite the order being last minute the cake arrived on time and exceeded our expectations. It captured the image magnificently and the quality of the design and, indeed, the cake was of the very highest order. My sister was thrilled. Thanks again

Hi there, Thank you Caketoppers for a fabulous photo cake delivered for my colleague Jonny's 50th birthday last Friday. He was so pleased and everyone loved it saying that it was divine. Will order again! Many thanks.
