I love a homespun chic cake decoration for Easter and these take the cake (see how I did that)!
1. Robin’s Egg Cake
What to do: Frost your cake using a frosting tinted robin’s egg blue. Cover your surface with paper towels (trust me, this gets messy). In a small bowl, stir together 1 tablespoon cocoa powder and 3 tablespoons vanilla extract. Dip a clean paint brush into the cocoa mixture and tap off any extra. Holding the brush in one hand, tap it against the other hand over the cake to create a splatter effect. You can also flick the bristles with your index finger toward the cake. Decorate with purchased malted eggs.
2. Peep Show Cake
What to do: Frost a two tiered cake with a pale yellow frosting. On the lower tier, pipe rosettes around the sides of the cake only. On the second tier, place peeps around the perimeter. PRO TIP: Leave the peeps joined as they come packaged as they are easier to shape around the cake. Save one peep for the top!
3. Jelly Bean Tower Cake (with pom poms natch)
What to do: Frost 3 different tube cakes with a thick layer of tinted frosting. Then, painstakingly, add jelly beans to cover the cakes. Top with pom poms (optional).
4. Malted Vanilla Cake
What to do: Frost the cake with a copper tinted frosting. Place a mound of store bought cotton candy on the top of the cake and top with malted Easter eggs.
