Want to make/buy a neon (UV) cake for my Daughter's 12th Birthday

Forum: Cakes & Cake Decorating

Hello, my name is Lisa. My daughter is having her 12th Birthday Party in December 2013. The theme is UV (Ultra Violet!), and I thought it would be a nice surprise if I could get her a neon (UV) cake made!! AS I am not a cake baker/maker, wondered if you had any ideas and suggestions for this? Only have a couple of weeks left, so any comments would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks

I’m not sure where you’re located, I’m sure you can find a good baker in your area-hopefully we can guide you if we know your area.

Some tips if you decide to try yourself:

UV cake stand with glowing cupcakes:




You can make the frosting ‘glow’ the link I sent was a jello method but I’ve seen it done with turmeric as well.
If you google ‘glowing’ cake/buttercream you’ll get some ideas. The second link was to a homemade stand I saw here on CD, I imagine it was covered with some paper (or even painted).

Depending on the design you want you could use some led lights or even glow sticks.
