Medieval Party Cake Ideas

When it comes time to think about the birthday cake in the medieval theme, ideas and possibilities are abundant.

You can either make your own cakes or have them custom-made, but whichever path you choose, here are some ideas:

  • Dragons. One of the mythological favorites throughout history have been dragons. You can have a cake in the shape of a fire-breathing dragon.
  • Castle. Intricate or simple, a castle is a fun way to present the birthday guy or girl with their cake. Candles can be small torches strategically placed around the exterior of the castle walls.
  • Sword. Simple and easy to make, a sword is symbolic of the medieval age.

Medieval Party Game Ideas

With your medieval theme that you've created, you can have any number of wild and exciting games that were popular during this period of time (though it's probably best to steer clear of the axe throw).

Some ideas include:

  • Ring toss. Popular during this time period, the idea is to get a small ring (about a foot or smaller in diameter) around a chalice. Using plastic 2-liter soda bottles cut in half will suffice for this game. They can get three tosses and the prize could be up to you. In medieval times, a kiss from a fair maiden was a worthy prize.
  • The Goose and the Feather. This medieval game was a favorite of peasants and royalty alike. In it, your guests sit in a circle facing each other. Each has a goose quill tucked into the back of their pants. One person is a fox and walks around the outside of the circle. When the ‘fox’ grabs a quill that ‘goose’ has to jump up and try to catch the fox before he or she can get back into the open space. If he does, then that goose gets to keep their spot, otherwise they’re the fox.
  • Human chess. Your guests become pieces of a giant chessboard and two people (the birthday person and one other) square off to try and win the game. To successfully take a piece, a sword battle takes place.
