Decorating a cake shouldn’t be reserved for birthdays, shouldn’t be difficult and shouldn’t be boring! This year I #putapigonit for my own birthday cake…well, Candace actually made it…I just stuck the pig on it, but who’s counting. The paper polka dot crown made it all festive. Below are a few of my favorite ways to decorate a cake. All simple and all simply full of delicious fun.
Decorate your cake to match your look! Kewpies for me!!
Cover it in kumquats!
Make it merry and bright by covering in pink frosting and adding a gold star!
Add some fall leaves and leave the sides naked! (make sure to clean the leaves well before putting on your cake)
Make it scary…in a cute way….smoke machine optional.
Girly swirls and pom poms you can never go wrong with.
Top it with candy!
How about a peep show topper!
Get figgy with it (yep, just said that…kind of hate myself right now).
Balloon Animals for the cake topper win!
Or if all else fails, polka dot it with some gum balls and set a bitchy dog next to it.
Bottom line…bake a delicious cake and have fun with the decorations!
