If you're a mom, you likely have a ton of cereal in your house. It's great for a quick breakfast, snack and you know what else? Decor on your cake! Yes, cereal can be an adorable way to shake up your cake decor without taking extra time and money! Here are three ideas to use what's in your cupboards to decorate your next party cake!

Fruity Pebbles Cake

This cereal is a kid favorite and it's also so bright and beautiful as decor on your cake! Fruity Pebbles are more popular than ever! Duncan Hines has a Fruity Pebbles cake kit in stores and recently Nike and LeBron James did a collaboration for Fruity Pebbles tennis shoes! Decorating your cake is simple and doesn't require much time either.

To decorate the cake, you'll want to put the cake on a sheet pan and spread the Fruity Pebbles around the bottom of the cake. Next, gently start to bring the Fruity Pebbles up the side of the cake. I tried using a spoon but found using my hands was so much easier! Press the cereal gently to the side until you have your desired look!

Honeycomb Cake

How sweet do these honeycombs look on the cake? It's perfect for a '1st Bee Day' theme or 'Sweet As Can Bee' party theme too! I love that it brings a little dimension and life to a simple white cake or really any color cake would look nice!

You can add the honeycombs around the base of your cake in lines or in a diagonal across the cake, either way looks cute!

They look like little boulders or dirt and you can place them around the base of your cake or in piles with your construction vehicles on top!
