Blowing out the flame of the candles on your debut cake can be among the highlights at your debut, and so you want your cake to be beautiful as it can be. However, with so many ideas popping your head, you might find it hard to choose the flavor and design. Don't you worry; we've got you covered. Here are four factors you can consider when choosing your debut cake.

Budget
Consider your budget before anything else, as this will be the basis of the rest of the factors. If you're on a tight budget and you want a towering cake for your debut, consider having faux layers and at least one edible layer. Doing so will allow you to achieve your dream debut cake while spending less.

Design
The design of your cake will most probably depend on two things: your theme and your personality. Make sure the different elements, like your cake's color and shape (and don't forget the topper!), complement each other and represent your taste. Also remember that your cake should strike a nice balance with the rest of your details.

Size
When it comes to the size of your debut cake, consider the number of your guests. Are you throwing a large party or just an intimate affair? Consider these things as they will help you determine whether or not there's enough cake for everyone. It is advisable that you tell your baker the total number of your guests so that s/he can help you decide which size you should have.

Flavor
For the flavors, keep in mind that the cake should satisfy not only your taste buds, but those of your guests, too. During your cake tasting session, have someone whose opinion you value to accompany you. This is so you can count on another person's feedback and it's not a one-sided thing. Or if you'll have several edible tiers of cake, have each of them come in different flavors so that your guests can choose whatever they like.
