When looking for the right cake it’s important to remember that while the guest of honor’s preference is crucial, this central party dessert needs to please everyone. There is definitely a happy medium where the right cake can meet the demands of the birthday boy/girl while still leaving guests demanding seconds. Avoid going to exotic, especially in the case of adding fruit or other distinct ingredients to interior layers.
Don’t forget about the cake; the spongy layers that hold up the frosting are just as important as the creamy filling. Maybe a cake creation was quickly discarded by unhappy guests due to dry layers. Flavor is also important as using a very distinct variety, such as lemon or carrot cake, may be off putting to a majority of the party attendees.
When in doubt, stick with chocolate. More specifically keep to the classics: a sheet cake covered in chocolate frosting is sure to go quickly as kids and adults alike will be snatching up pieces in a hurry.
Explore other types of cakes beyond the traditional sheet or round two-layered variety. Cookie cakes can be a great option especially for larger parties. Now that most of the larger grocery stores also offer their own cookie cakes, these specialty birthday desserts are no longer an expensive alternative and can be a fun change of pace. Ice cream cakes, a long time favorite can offer the best of both worlds as some vendors even feature hard cookie crusts. Frozen yogurt pies/ cakes can offer a lower calorie option that is equally delicious and a change from the typical birthday dessert.

Everyone seems to wait on who takes and eats the piece of cake where the face or head of the celebrant is lying.
