Whether the future bride is a Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda, or Samantha, you need to celebrate with one last single night in the city. For a fun bachelorette party idea, design a cake with all the ingredients for a perfect girl's night: heels, pearls, martinis, and one very sparkly diamond ring.
3. Pole Dancing Cake
If you're taking this hen party to Vegas for the weekend, you may be tempted to visit Magic Mike Live or take a private pole dancing class. What better way to commemorate the weekend then by recreating those moves in buttercream form?
Decorate your own bach and bridal shower cake by decorating your own pole dancing cake. This custom cake topper from Amazon includes the future bride's name, along with a tasteful silhouette of her dancing moves.
4. Boob Cake Pops
If the girl of the hour requests a lingerie shower, then give the lady what she wants. These adorable cake pops take things up a notch, where a pair of pops are decorated as busts in frosting lingerie.
To make your pops, try this yummy recipe. You'll also need a cake pop (or donut hole) maker and lollipop sticks. Be sure to give the bride a new lingerie wardrobe. Each sexy outfit can double as party decorations.
5. Classy Donut Tower
There are no hard rules when it comes to bachelorette parties. Therefore, if your girl's top-ranked treat is donuts — not cake — then build a donut tower "cake" for your girls night.
Stack a series of frosted donuts in a tower, then use a fun cake topper to finish off your creation. This adorable topper would be great for a bachelorette or engagement party, displaying the words, "She said yes!" in handwriting across a pink banner.
6. Champagne Flute Cake

Ready to toast to the happy couple? This all-pink boozy cake would be fun as a bachelorette or engagement cake.
While birthday cakes get candles, a BACH dessert calls for something a bit more 21+ friendly. This adorable cake is covered in (filled!) mini champagne flutes, allowing you to raise your glass to the bride-to-be.
7. Wedding Dress Treats
If your girl spent months (let’s be honest — years) picking out the perfect wedding dress, then commemorate her wardrobe addition with a gorgeous cake. This wedding dress cake is actually dozens of party cupcakes expertly puzzle-pieced together into a bridal gown shape.
To recreate this gorgeous confection, you simply need dozens of chocolate cake cupcakes with white frosting. Then, sketch the outline of a bridal gown on a sturdy piece of tagboard, and place the cupcakes inside your design.
8. Happy Ever After Cake
If the theme of the bachelorette weekend is "Disneyland or bust," you need a cake to complete the weekend. This cake topper represents every Disney princess's dream come true: It says "Happily Ever After" in cursive.
You can create a tasteful, simple dessert by decorating your cake in white and Minnie-Mouse pink, then adding some glitter for good measure. Simply add the Disney wedding cake topper before serving.
9. Nostalgic Party Cake

With wedding planning stress at an all-time high, your future bride may long for the days when things were much simpler. Give her those warm, fuzzy feelings with a few throwbacks from her childhood.
This fun cake represents the bride's favorite TV show from the '90s: Friends. Decorated as Monica's front door and topped with the classic Ross-Rachel line, "He's her lobster," it brings back fond memories from decades past. Snap a few pics posing like the iconic six characters to commemorate the evening.
10. Six-Pack Abs Cake
If you want to make your bride blush, you can certainly go with a naughty cake. But if moms (or grandmas!) are in attendance at the bridal shower party, you may need to take things from X-rated to PG-13.
Rather than go for the risqué penis cake, try a tasteful (and tasty) six-pack abs cake instead. This cake decorating tutorial shows you how to make a dessert in the shape of a shirtless man — provocative enough for your BACH party, yet family-function approved.
11. Drunk in Love Cake
Is your favorite party girl ready to walk down the aisle? As your BFF trades her single Saturday nights for staying in with the love of her life, give her a fun party cake for her last hurrah.
This gorgeous cake would work for a bachelorette or Valentine's Day party. Covered in buttercream white roses, it's finished with a glittery gold topper from Etsy that reads, "Drunk in love."
12. Corset Cake

This boudoir corset cake would be perfect for a bachelorette or bachelor party. Refined yet seductive, it's a fun way to represent the future bride.
