Celebrating a birthday with a delicious piece of cake is a long-held tradition that can make turning another year older just that little bit sweeter.  Everyone from the young to the old gets excited over the thought of how the cake will be decorated, what flavor it will be and most importantly - how will it taste?  When considering birthday party cake ideas, our bakery has got you covered with our beautifully handmade and hand-decorated traditional Danish birthday cakes that look amazing and taste even better.  The older we get, the more we appreciate a great cake, which is probably why we start our own birthday celebration by eating dessert first!

Types of Layer Cakes From Our Danish Bakery

Fudge Chocolate Layer Cake At O&H Danish Bakery, our Danish Layer Cakes are created with two important things in mind - personal attention and a perfect balance between the cake and frosting.  Every Danish Layer birthday cake is handmade to ensure that it is built to perfection and filled with our scratch made filling like our homemade raspberry jam, mouth-watering mousse or delicious buttercream.  Our extremely talented cake decorators then skillfully cover each cake with a smooth frosting and artistically hand-decorate the outside making these creations a fantastic addition to any birthday celebration.
