Great Birthday Party Ideas and Great Happy Birthday Ideas have pictures of 50th birthday cakes. The cakes are designed in both elegant and casual styles to match the formality level of a variety of 50th birthday celebrations.
Cakes shaped like the number 50 are among the cake selections. The cake can be iced in the guest of honor's favorite color or accented with gold, as gold is the color most associated with a 50th birthday. A cake that features the style of the 1950s is an option as well. A cake in the style of a 50s diner or a teddy bear wearing 1950s fashion, such as a poodle skirt or bobby socks, is colorful and may be fitting for a themed celebration.
