Taylor Swift Eras Cake Series


Welcome to the Taylor Swift Era’s Cake Series. This whole thing started back in 2017 when I created my first cake series inspired by the 1989 album. At the time, I was helping take care of my mom who was sick with cancer. I was blogging just for fun, and I needed a creative outlet – some sort of distraction from all the doctor’s appointments and medications and sadness. And my mom also happened to be a big Taylor Swift fan. So for me, the first cake series helped provide some relief.

Now, 6 years later, I am a full-time blogger and run a baking supply company called Sweets Indeed with my Dad and Brother (which I know my mom would find absolutely hilarious).

And with the Eras Tour underway, I decided to embark on another Taylor Swift Cake Series – this time Eras style.

10 cakes to represent her 10 albums (using some of my favorite Sweets Indeed products)

Unfortunately, my mom is not around to see this series, but I like to this she would have loved them. And I hope you do too.

Debut Album Era

Her debut album era is all about those country roots. She released this self-titled album when she was just 16 years old (basically a baby!), but she was already showing the world what a talented writer she was. With her cowboy boots and guitar, Taylor toured as an opening act for many popular country artists and started her career toward becoming the pop icon she is today.

The Taylor Swift Eras Cake Series begins! And of course, we are starting with the Debut Album. Let me know if you think I captured this era properly. Putting these cakes together has been such a fun process – especially because I have been able to use so many of our own products. Here’s what I used for this cake: @cookiecutterkingdom tipless piping bags @sweetsindeed turquoise gel food color (part of our set) @sweetsindeed blue edible glitter I can’t wait to hear what you guys think! #taylorswifterastour #taylorswiftsongs #taylorswiftalbum #cakedecoration

♬ Stay Beautiful – Taylor Swift

Fearless Era

The Fearless Era is a remarkable one. Not only did she begin to gain more widespread recognition from critics and fans, but the girl also became one of the youngest people ever to win a Grammy for “Album of the Year”. There were so many directions I could go for this cake, but I ultimately decided that this was an era filled with so much hope, sparkle, and a touch of country. And with her first tour as a headliner, I wanted to give a shoutout to that Fearless Guitar and fringe dress.

Taylor Swift Eras Cake Series – Fearless Era. There were so many directions I could have gone with this one, but I decided that this was an era filled with so much shine (and I really wanted to make that Fearless Guitar) – so I tried to use all the sparkly products we have! Fun Fact: This album contains my favorite Taylor Swift song of all time “Forever and Always”. It got me through a hard breakup and I still love it to this day. Here is all the stuff I used for this cake: From @sweetsindeed – Platinum Sprinklefetti – Rose Gold Drageé Sprinklefetti – Gold Edible Glitter – Silver Edible Glitter – Gold Edible Luster – Gold Edible Glitter Spray – Lemon Yellow Food Color From Cookie Cutter Kingdom – The best tipless piping bags ever! #taylorswifterastour #fearlesstaylorsversion #taylorswiftsongs #cakedecor

Speak Now Era

To me, this album is all about romance – the good, the bad, and the ugly. From the initial excitement of a crush, to being head over heels in love with someone, to then being completely wrecked by that person you thought was your everything. It’s all on there. So for this cake, I wanted to do something fun while also capturing the album’s idealized version of romance. The whimsical rice paper sail and the sparkling topper make this one of my favorites in the series!

Red Era

This was the era where Taylor began to dip her toe into the world of pop. With this album, she experimented with a wide variety of genres, secured her first number-one single, and gave us the best breakup song…like, ever. Also, shoutout to my favorite performance when she ROCKED out on the piano at the Grammy’s. Like the album, this cake has a going on. But I still love it.

Taylor Swift Eras Cake Series – The Red Era. Is it jsut me, or does Taylor wear a LOT of hats in this era? The Red Era is a great one. It’s the era where Taylor transformed from country princess to a Pop Star. With this album, she experimented with a wide variety of genres, secured her first number-one single, and gave us the best breakup song of all time…like, ever. Shout out to my favorite performance when she ROCKED out on the piano at the Grammy’s. Like the album, this cake has a going on. But I still love it.

1989 Era

With the release of 1989, Taylor transformed from a Nashville country darling to a New York City Pop Queen. As her first full pop album, 1989 was super fun and flirty, and it had some serious hits on it. The album imagery was heavily focused on polaroids – so I decided to lean into that for my cake design. Each one represents something different from this awesome era.

Taylor Swift Eras Cake Series- The 1989 Era. With the release of 1989, Taylor went from Nashville country darling to a New York City Pop Queen. As her first full pop album, 1989 was super fun and flirty, and it had some serious hits on it. The album imagery was heavily focused on polaroids – so I decided to lean into that for my cake design. By week three of trying to make these things, I was very much regretting that decision. It turns out that making an edible polaroid to stay on the side of a cake is a LOT harder than it looks. But I am pretty obsessed with the topper in this cake.

Reputation Era

 While this era looked all dark and moody on the outside (her comeback after years of hiding away from the pubic), the truth is, the album itself is really about her finding herself and falling in love. And I am here for it so much. It also has some amazing full-volume car-dancing pop songs on there. For the cake, I obviously leaned into the dark and moody vibe and made sure to give a shoutout to the zombie Taylor and the snake 🐍 (which she brilliantly owned in this era). This is definitely my favorite cake of the series!

Lover Era

Definitely the most colorful era in Taylor’s career, this album not only focused on romantic love but self-love and inclusivity. With the vibrant visuals, music videos, and upbeat pop songs I wanted to create a cake that matched that happy “Lover” energy. And of course, I added plenty of pink and heart accents!

The Lover Era Cake. Definitely the most colorful era in Taylor’s career, this album not only focused on romantic love but self-love and inclusivity. With the vibrant visuals, music videos, and upbeat pop songs I created a pink and blue watercolor look for this cake with a lot of pink accents (I am obsessed with the glitter heart). I also attempted a new technique (the ripped edge) and then decided at the end to change the paint color from blue to pink. Because sometimes we change our minds. And that’s ok.

Folklore Era

This surprise album was a huge departure from the last few eras as she presented us with a much softer indie-folk sound. She embraced a more natural and muted aesthetic and spent a lot of time hanging out in the forest with trees.

Now Folklore and Evermore have similar vibes – but I decided that Folklore should be simple (yet naturey) with a muted color palate.

Evermore Era

Evermore is the sister album to Folklore – aka a lot of time in the woods with a more mature indie folk sound. Becuase I decided to stick with a black and white color palate for the Folklore cake, I knew I wanted to create the moss-covered Piano for my Evermore cake.

Midnights Era

Taylor announced her 10th studio album as “a collection of music written in the middle of the night…exploring old memories and midnights past”. We all have stuff that keeps us up at night. It’s what makes us human. But no matter who we are or where we live or what’s going on in our lives – just outside our windows, the same moon and stars shine over us all. And I think there is something comforting about that. So for this final cake, I went for a start night sky.
