Are you looking for stock market cake ideas to celebrate the investor in your life?
My dad and I both enjoy trading and this got me thinking about a stock market themed birthday party (adults can have themed parties too)!
We’ve compiled a list of our top 10 favorite ideas to give you a little inspiration when planning your own Wall Street cake.
Top 10 Stock Market Cake Ideas
Some of these stock market cake ideas are easy to reproduce, while others are ideal for more experienced bakers.
No matter what your skill level, you’re sure to find a Wall Street cake or a Bitcoin cake that works for your stock market birthday theme.
1. Have a Bullish Birthday
I love this stock market birthday cake by Divine Cakes by Miritza because it’s colorful, yet not too busy.
The candlestick charts on the front and the bull on the top really make the cake.
I think anyone who considers themselves a beginner in the cake decorating world could easily reproduce this fun cake, which is one of the reasons it’s at the top of my list.
2. Big Bitcoin Cake
Candy Patricia shared this big Bitcoin cake. I love the stock tickers along the bottom of the cake!
The top features a giant Bitcoin, making it an excellent choice for crypto investors.
While decorating the sides of this cake would be quite easy, the upper Bitcoin has a lot of detail and may be a bit harder to complete.
3. Buy the Dip Cake
One stock market strategy is to “Buy the Dip.” Nonn@’s Cakes does an excellent job of creating a cake that you can even personalize.
You can include your friend or loved one’s favorite stock’s ticker symbol and price per share. You can also change the colors of the fondant.
I love that the coins are both on top of the cake and piled up around the cake.
4. Bull or Bear Market Cake
Nancy Bardt shared this astounding Bear or Bull Market Cake. So much detail in the stock market symbols that you can’t take your eyes off them.
This cake almost feels like it’s more for decoration than eating. I’d suggest surrounding this cake with smaller Bitcoin cupcakes that guests can grab and eat at the party.
I like these Bitcoin Cupcake Toppers by RSVP Party Decor:
5. Stock Market Theme Cake
This intricate Stock Market Theme Cake is designed by Aubree Haute Chocolaterie.
If you’re looking for stock market cake ideas for men, this is a good pick. It features an investor sitting on the edge of the cake.
Surrounding the investor are coins, buy and sell signs, a briefcase and a bull.
You can personlize the cake with American money symbols and the name of the friend or family member you are celebrating.

7. World’s Greatest Investor Cake

You can personalize the ticker symbol around the bottom of the cake, as well as the birthday message just abovit.
8. Wall Street Cake
Planners Costa Rica posted this truly amazing work of art!
The cake has multiple tiers with the top tier showcasing the buildings in New York. The bottom tier is decorated with the Wall Street sign.
A golden bull sits above both tiers with dollars and coins surrounding the base.
9. Money Cake (Profit Cake)
This Money Cake by Teju’s Cake Creations has a wrap around the sides displaying stock market ticker board.
What makes this cake different is the cool keyboard topper. Among the traditional letter keys are keys that read “Trade,” “Shares,” “Buy,” “Sell,” and “Stock.”
10. Cupcakes: Stock Market Themed Decorations
I know these are cupcakes and not one singular cake, but I wanted to include them because they inspire a great deal of stock market cake ideas.
The cupcakes by Cupcakesnouveau feature a variety of toppers. You’ll see the run up and run down symbols, dollar signs, Dow Jones toppers and even a trading laptop.
You could create other stock market birthday cake toppers, such as Bitcoins, bulls, bears, or your favorite ticker symbols.

Stock Market Birthday Theme
When going with the stock market birthday theme, you’ll want to move on to decorations and food options after you select your Wall Street cake.
Here are a few ideas to get you started.
Stock Market Themed Decorations
Choose your color scheme first. You may wish to go with gold, as that is the color of Bitcoin. Another option is green and red to symbolize buying and selling stocks.
Grab a tablecloth, napkins, streamers and balloons in your selected color scheme.
Next, print out some Million Dollar Candy Bar Wrappers to wrap your own chocolate bars. You can lay these around your table or give them away as gifts.
Create a backdrop behind your table that looks like a ticker symbol board.
Add some gold bars or gold coins around the party area. Bull and bear figurines will also work well for a stock market birthday theme.
You can cut trend signs out of construction paper or cardstock, or use the construction paper or cardstock to create a candlestick chart.
There’s also the option to create fake stock portfolio online and then print it out to set-up somewhere on the table.
Stock Market Themed Foods
Consider including a few stock market themed foods among your decorations.
Rice Krispy treats can be dyed green, formed in the shape of a rectangle and decorated with a dollar bill sign using icing.
Oreo cookies can be sprayed with edible gold food spray to resemble Bitcoins.
You can also set out traditional birthday party snack foods and set a card in front of each with the company’s ticker symbol and current price per share.
