You can always go for a sheet or layered cake without thinking twice. But when planning for your elder ones, avoid ice cream cakes or cheesecakes, considering their health conditions. 

Dietary Restrictions

Birthday cakes do come with a lot of calories and fun-filled memories. Either you can choose both or decide to cut on the calorie part with prior instructions. Also, if you are a vegan, chat with your baker, instructing the needful.
