An alphabet cake is simply a cake that is shaped like an alphabet. So you can go with whatever alphabet you want. Although, the alphabet you choose must have something to do with what or who the cake is for.
So that if it is a cake for a baby shower, then B, will be the best alphabet to use as b stands for baby. If the cake is for your mom or dad, then you can go for the letters M or D respectively. You can also pick a letter based on the name of the person you are giving the cake to, by using the first letter of their name.
Another thing too is that an alphabet cake can spell out a word or a name. So you can have your alphabet cake spell F.O.U.R or S.O.R.R.Y or whatever you want. Whiles the one-letter cakes are often very big in size, if you are going for a word cake, it’s advisable to make them a bit smaller.
