Welcome to Cakes Likes A Party. This blog has been a looooong time coming and it will be quite a journey from here. Soooo… in a nutshell, I am Annika and was nicknamed “Annicakes” by my cousins a long time ago. This tag has since been adopted by many of my friends, family, husband, and now my oldest son but has been shortened to “Cakes.”
I grew up with a mom who loved a good party, loved creating beautiful things, and loved her friends dearly. It must be in the DNA because I sure like a good party too.
I have a background in graphic design, most recently having worked for blogging lovelies Sugar Inc., and along with highlighting the parties I throw, I’ll chat about anything party-related and share invitations I’ve designed as well. Eventually I will link to my etsy shop where you will be able to purchase printable PDFs. In the meantime, feel free to contact me about helping out your party planning process. I’ve done everything from invites to renting out party packs.
If you’d like to advertise, that will be coming soon, so shoot me an email and I will keep you posted!
Anyway, let’s celebrate party peeps! I’m so excited that you’re reading this and hope you find some inspiration here at Cakes Likes A Party.

    I love all the stuff you’ve done! I ran across your 30 plus 1 Cuban themed party and love all of your ideas!

I’m totally sold!!

  10. Hi! I came across your site purely on a whim and am so excited I did! You possess some qualities I know I have but don’t execute so well… If possible can you PLEASE share some of your expertise with me? I’m trying to figure out how to throw a cars/race themed birthday party for my will be 1 year old son and 3 year old daughter later this year. My challenge is not making it so boyish as my daughter just happens to LOVE cars (and not just the movie). Thanks so much!!

  11. I loved the bubbles themed party! So cute! I am planning my daughter’s 2 year old bubbles themed party. I would love info. Invites, personalized bubbles, bubble bath with tags, ribbons, etc. all the details! Thank you
