Chinese cakes, or dangao in chinese pinyin are elegantly decorated in various forms. The most popular, is bright colours such as golds and reds often with a model of an animal that is considered powerful or lucky, such as the dragon. The Chinese save such elaborate cakes for weddings and seldom decorate or buy them for birthdays. Chinese birthday cakes are often small, inexpensive and very sweet tasting.
The less extravagant forms of Chinese cakes are elegantly decorated with natural colours such as greens and browns, often depicting leaves or trees. These Chinese cakes are often for special celebrations other than weddings.
Chinese themed wedding and birthday cakes are becoming increasingly popular in the west, as their unique design and flare appeal to all ages.
