Neon Cake Ideas

by Shanna
(Puerto Rico)

Q: Hi!! My name is Shanna and my friend Nicole is turning 15 in June. I'm helping her plan her party, and the theme we chose was Glow/Blacklight. I was wondering what to do for a cake? The party colors are basically going to be (neon) orange, yellow, green, pink, blue, and purple. The thing is: we don't know how to make a cake for this party! Please help!! xD

To create a black light cake or a neon cake sounds challenging, but in reality it's not too bad!

First of all you want to select your desired shape of cake. I personally like a two tier square cake, but all shapes would be suitable. Next you want to select your colour theme. For a regular black light cake any colours will work, but usually you would want to create your colour base to be neon colours (e.g., pink, blue, green, yellow, etc.).


For the icing portion of the cake there are a couple of options. There are a number of ways to create these colours for your icing. Start with a vanilla icing and mix in some neon icing colour. Or you can purchase pre-made Neon Coloured Fondant.


For your design purchase glow in the dark stars, moons, planets or “stickers” that suit your theme. I have seen these Glow-In-The-Dark Stars, butterflies, retro peace theme, pirate theme, dinosaurs, etc. Use the ones that typically you stick on your walls and ceilings and make sure no one eats any! Set the stickers out in the sunlight before the party and stick them on for the party and let them glow.


This neon cake will be such an interesting center at any glow party! Good luck and have a great party! Be sure to come back and tell us all about it!
