Puzzle Birthday Cake Ideas


Puzzle-themed birthday cakes are a fun addition to a party. Whether you are having a mystery party or a birthday party for a puzzle buff, a puzzle birthday cake is an appropriate and fun way to tie the theme into all aspect of the party, including the cake.

Puzzle-Shaped Cake

  • Create a puzzle-shaped cake. Take a sheet cake and cut it in half. Make the cut resemble a jigsaw cut. Frost and display the cakes apart from each other. Alternately, use ready-to-bake sugar cookie dough to create a cake. Roll the dough out to a quarter-inch thickness, and cut the dough into randomly shaped puzzle pieces. You may have to recut the lines after baking. Place them on the cake, write "Happy Birthday" on the top and add flowers or other decorative elements to the cake top.

Puzzle Cake Topper

  • Create a puzzle out of a picture of the birthday girl. Make the puzzle yourself by printing an 8 x 10 photo of the birthday girl and mounting in on cardstock. Cut the picture into puzzle shapes. Reassemble the picture and lay it flat on top of the cake. You can also have the puzzle professionally made. Many photo processing places offer this service.

Jigsaw Puzzle Piece Cake

  • Create a puzzle out of a cake to reinforce a puzzle themed birthday party. Put a baked cake into the freezer until it is frozen. Score the lines of a puzzle on top of the cake with a sharp knife. Make a horizontal cut about a quarter of an inch under some random pieces so the piece can be removed from the cake top. Refreeze the cake and the removed pieces. Frost both the pieces that remain on the cake and the separated pieces. Place the puzzle pieces randomly around the cake top to appear that the puzzle is only partially put together.

Puzzle Birthday Cake Invitations

  • Make an invitation to the party by using a photo of a birthday cake, and write all the important party information on the invitation as well. Mount the card on cardstock and cut it into jigsaw shaped pieces. Hand deliver the cards to the guests. Guests must first put together the puzzle before they can read the party information or see the image of the cake.
