Can you tell me how to say "Also, will you make a cake for my birthday party?" in Spanish?  

Would you say: Además de eso, ¿Harás tú una torta para mi fiesta de cumpleaños?

Or would you say: ¿Además de eso, harás tú una torta para mi fiesta de cumpleaños?

Or some other way?

I would recommend the sentence, "Además, le hará un pastel para mi fiesta de cumpleaños, por favor?" which translates to "Also, do a cake for my birthday party, please?"

There are  a number of ways to make this request.

If you are making this request to a friend or anyone you are address with "tú", you can say: "Además podrías hacer una torta para mi fiesta de cumpleaños?". You can ask this question in a bit less tentative way using "Además podrás hacer...". 

If you would normally address the person you are making the request to using "Usted", the verb changes to "podría" or "podrá": "Además podría hacer una torta para mi fiesta de cumpleaños?/ "Además podrá hacer....?

Besides "además" you could use "también"
