31 Days of Themed Cakes


Here are 31 days of themed cakes to enhance your history, science, geography, and Bible lessons! Talk about having your cake and eating it, too! The history cakes include iconic symbols from specific time periods, like a jukebox for the 1950’s and a gramophone for the 1920’s. Geography cakes feature maps, and Bible cakes bring to life stories and concepts from the Bible. The science cakes help to teach the anatomy of an amoeba, a skin model, or the solar system.

During the month of October, I will be posting each of the remaining cakes on this fun list, categorizing the cakes into the different academic subjects.

Cakes can be a great way to culminate a unit study, celebrating the completion of a topic in science or history. You can even go all out and have a themed party with decorations and invitations, all centered around the topic of study!

    This is so fun!! I love the hands on creativity to put learning together with cake. Reminds me of a project I did in highschool…We had to create a cell out of materials and I made a cake. I used different candies that looked like all the different parts of a cell. It definitely helped me retain the info on all the parts of a cell! I still think about that cake when I think about cells. Haha!

    These are so cool! I’m not sure I have the skill for this. Haha. Plus I’m sure after a month, I’d have gained 100lbs. lol.

    I frequently make fun birthday cakes in order to improve my skills. This week I found a chocolate cake mix in the cake aisle of a local supermarket. At other times I use free cake recipes I read in a magazine I buy. My family and I have a lot of fun baking the cakes on Saturday afternoons. We also make cakes in addition to raise more money for charity as well.
    For example a few months ago before Christmas last year one Saturday afternoon we made a fruit cake. I then ate the entire cake at church service the next day. Recently we baked up six mini bunny shaped cakes to eat at the weekly church service. That was a treat. I love making cakes.
    Next week on Saturday afternoon the current plan is this. I want to make iced cakes to put on a tray. At some point I also want to try baking a few other cakes. I find that yes the cakes are fairly easy to make. You can certainly prepare all sorts of cakes if you get down to it. It’s much cheaper that way. I have visited a bakery in town and looked at the cakes in a supermarket. Nothing beats the quality of my old school homemade cakes however.
    Seriously. In the distant past I have made a mini chocolate mug cake and Valentine’s Day cupcakes more recently. Making cakes is ultimately worth the cost. Good luck.
