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 cutter in the size/shape that you want on your cake. 

And did I mention that cute cake topper? Here is where you can order a personalized God Bless cake topper and here is where you can order a name cake topper.

Back to the cookie cutter and sprinkles....

Place the cookie cutter on the frosted cake.  I recommend that you dump the sprinkles into a small bowl and use your fingers to start sprinkling all around the outside edges of the cookie cutter.  Do this while the frosting is fresh and soft, before it starts to harden.

Use a lot of sprinkles close to the cookie cutter so that the frosting is almost fully covered. Then as you move outward from the cookie cutter, use less sprinkles so they are more spread out.  When you’re happy with how it looks, pull the cookie cutter straight up to reveal your masterpiece.  I’ll be honest…I did get out the tweezers and strategically place a few sprinkles at the very end, but that’s only because I’m a bit neurotic.
