Easy 70th Birthday Buttercream Cake

The 70th birthday cake pictured below is one that is easy to create at home. I made this cake for my lovely mother-in-law. 

To make this cake: bake 1 large rectangular sheet cake and 1 ring cake to get this look.

Simply cut the cake into long pieces for the 7 shape. The 0 is created by cutting the ring cake in half. It is elongated with a few pieces of the sheet cake to make it look more of an oval shape rather than just a round circle shape.

The beauty of this easy cake is that once it’s been iced you can’t see where it has been joined. So don’t worry about it being perfect to start with. The icing can cover any mistakes.

Ice the cake with buttercream and tie a ribbon around the bottom edge of the cake. You could decorate the top of the cake with anything you like. Fresh flowers, fake flowers, candy…anything you can think of.

This cake below would also be a fun one to make. You could make a number template from cardboard to block out an area where you don’t want the sprinkles to go.

  1. I think for a 70th birthday, simpler designs might actually be more appreciated. Sometimes less is more, especially with elegant cake toppers. Not everyone wants something over the top.

  2. ever tried to make a cake and it ends up looking nothing like these fancy ones. guess it’s the thought that counts right? haha
