Unique Cake Ideas For Eid

Here are some of the cake ideas inspired by the Muslim culture.

Mosque Cake Ideas:

A mosque constructed by cake will be an awesome sight on Eid. What better way to celebrate a religious festival than a cake depicting the Prayer place? There a lot of ways you can create a mosque cake.
For unique and creative ideas you can also get help from some amazing helpbooks offering many ideas which you can use.


Make a 3D Mosque:

You can make a 3D mosque using different cakes. For the base use a rectangular sheet cake and on top of it place an inverted semi-circle cake to depict the dome of the mosque. Cut narrow rectangular pieces of cake and place them vertically on the corners of the rectangular base to show the minarets. Cover in icing or fondant as you desire.

Make a Carved Mosque cake:

 For this you will need a template from which to cut out the shape. Find a picture of the mosque which you want to make into a cake. Print it out and make Xerox copy of it increasing it 3 to 4 times in size. Take a sheet cake and place the template on top. Carefully cut out the boundary of the cake and cover carefully with buttercream making sure to cover the sides smoothly so that the crumbs don’t fall off. After that use different icing colors or fondant cutouts to finish the cake.

Quran Cake Ideas

You can also create a cake showing the Holy Book-The Quran. You do not have to write any verses on it as it will be considered unrespectable to cut the verses but you can write an Eid message on the cake like 'Happy Eid', 'Eid Mubarik' or 'Eid Greetings'.

Just carve a cake in the shape of a book and decorate it. Calligraphy is also very traditional in Arab culture so the Eid message done in calligraphy will also look beautiful.

Cakes For Eid-ul-Azha

Eid-Ul-Azha is celebrated by giving a sacrifice of a Lamb, sheep, cow or camel and distributed it's meat among the celebrators. A cake on Eid-Ul-Azha can be done very creatively and beautifully.

  • You can shape the cake in shape of the animal you have sacrificed. Make a template of the animal as described above and decorate as needed.
  • Mould out some animal toppers from fondant and top your cake with these toppers.
  • You can also buy some animal decorations to decorate your cake. 
  • For a simple cake write an Eid greeting on the cake or use one of the many toppers available in markets.

Unique Cupcakes For Eid

Make some batches of cupcakes if you don't want to have a single cake. Decorate them with moon and stars for Eid-ulFitr and different animal shapes and Eid messages for Eid-ul-Azha. You can use many different colour combinations and decorations for decorating your cupcakes. 

Test your creative skills by making lots of cupcakes and decorating them differently. You can:

  • Mould out little animals from fondant and use those to top your cupcakes with.
  • Make the letters of EID MUBARAK moulded from fondant and using a letter each on cupcakes complete the message. Set your cupcakes in a tray so everyone can read out the message.
  • Make crescent moon and stars. Mould them out or cut out the shapes. You can also use some star and moon toppers for the purpose.

Some amazing products offered by Wilton have made cake and cupcake decorating very easy. Make sure you get your own decorating sets for easy baking!
