Day 26: Easy cake decorating ideas

Excused the randomness of this post, but I just wanted to share with you some ideas I've used over the years that are simple enough anyone could duplicate.

Cake topper
This is one of my favorite things to use as a cake topper especially for wedding cakes.  I like it because you can color it to match any color scheme and it can be a memento the couple can keep and use in their home.  It's simply a wooden letter (about 4" or so high) that you can get at any craft shop.  I just painted it and hot glued it to a dowel rod.


 This was for my nephew's first birthday and the "1" could still be used as a memento.

Names on cake
I was really happy with the way this turned out.  My family spent a weekend at the lake with 2 other families so I made a cake for us and I decorated it with all of our names.  The names are written in cursive around the cake.  Granted I don't have the neatest cake cursive writing, but I just love how you have to do a double-take to really see the names.


Chocolate mosaic
I used this for a friend's groom cake.  It's chocolate that I broke into pieces and just stuck to the side with frosting.  I also added chocolate shavings to the top.
What about you?  Do you have any go-to cake decorating tips?  I'd love to hear 'em!

I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your site?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to
say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.

Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.

Maybe you could space it out better?
