Cake Gallery: Cookie Cutter Shapes

I needed a cake for my son’s 1st Communion party.  I was NOT loving the grocery store cakes with the baby blue buttercream roses.  And I did NOT have the budget for a gorgeous layered cake from a fancy bakery.  I can bake a really good cake, but my decorating can be hit or miss.  Hmmm..... When you’re having a house full of guests, it is NO time to mess around with a potential decorating disaster.   I found the perfect solution that can be used for all kinds of different celebrations…pretty fail-proof.  All you need are sprinkles and a cookie...

Cake Gallery:  Neon Yolk Sprinkles

When I first found Neon Yolk sprinkles, my heart skipped a beat.  They couldn’t be any more beautiful and perfect! I love to bake cakes, but just don’t have the time for intricate decorations.   I already loved sprinkles, but these mixes take easy cake decorating to the next level….no, they take the elevator straight up to the luxury penthouse.

Cake Gallery: Animals with Party Hats!

Fancy sculpted fondant animals are nice, but grabbing a plastic animal from the toy box for the top of your cake is 9 million times easier!  To prevent a heavy animal from sinking into the cake, I went back to the toys and got a little plate from the play kitchen and put it on top of the cake before covering it with frosting.  That gave the heavy gorilla a sturdy place to stand.  And those party hats.....aren't they cute!  It took about 3 minutes to make each one.  I got the party hat pattern here.  Here is where you can order...

Cake Gallery: Star Wars Jedi Master Cake

There's nothing to the cake decorating on this one. Just plain white frosting.  The magic is in the Stormtrooper marshmallow pops!  I was inspired by this blog post from Catch My Party and the little guys couldn't be easier to make!  Marshmallows, edible marker (I used Wilton brand from Michael's) and lollipop sticks.  Make a whole army of them! Stick some in the cake and serve more along side.  Here is where you can order a personalized cake topper for your Jedi Master.  Avalon Sunshine cake toppers are the easiest way to decorate your cake without any stress or decorating skills....

Cake Gallery: Frosted Animal Crackers

I love sharing cake decorating ideas that require absolutely zero decorating skills.  This one is awesome because those frosted animal cookies are soooo yummy! And they have a healthy dose of sprinkles...my favorite food group.   There isn't much to explain.  Just frost the cake and place the cookies where you want them.  Done.  One bag of cookies covered this 9" round 2-layer cake.  If your cake is any larger, or if you plan to sample the cookies as you decorate, you will want to buy 2 bags of cookies.   Here is where you can order a personalized cake topper...
