If you are looking for some cake designs that will have a hint of playful innocence and look strikingly attractive, just opt for a lovely carousel cake and you are good to go. As the name suggests, the carousel cakes are made of nicely built merry-go-rounds that are comprised of small make-believe animals such as horses and/or unicorns as seats. These cakes are well known for being very beautiful, and are often preferred as birthday or wedding cakes. Coloration is an important aspect for carousel cakes, and nice shades help to accentuate the brilliance of these cakes. The colors that are most predominantly preferred for these cakes include pink, lilac, lavender, purple, blue, white, red, golden and orange. Sometimes the upper portions of the carousel cakes are decorated by designs such as stars, flowers, or flags. The cake can only be comprised of a carousel; alternatively it can also be built on top of a two or a three tier cake.
