Cake! Cake! Cake! Who doesn’t want their cake & eat it too?
To a party a cake is so so important – it can either make or break it … well maybe not, no one can actually break a great party even if there’s no cake at all. But can we all just agree that everyone loves cake.
For me, I’m a party stylist, and even though I like to think I’m an expert cake decorator I’m reminded often that I’m not. LOL cookies are more my speed.
We all see those big fancy cakes and they can be SOOOO intimidating… I’ve put together this post to show you they don’t have to be.
These simple cakes will put the cherry right on top of any party. And you can do them all yourself!
Shhhh… just between us I’ll let you in on a little secret I like to use to make this process even more stress less I go to my local bakery and just order a simple plain white cake and then just decorate it myself with a super cute topper…. I know, I know that’s major cheating, right?!
Lets jump right in..
BOOYAH!! This one is SO easy, Take a simple frosted cake and dress it up with a funky cake topper.
If you want to stay a little more on the “traditional” side try funking up your cake with some fun candles!
Add to the sweetness & add some Cotton candy. Pre-cut your cake and add a little something to each slice to make each guest feel super SWEET!
Now it can’t really be a party without Balloons can it?!
Your guests are sure to be blown away with these super easy & quick balloon toppers.
Bring back those party hats!! How cool would it be to get life size party hats for your guests to wear to match these Mini ones!!
Flowers seem to be super in this year, especially with all the rain we got here in California over the winter. I used this next cake as the inspiration behind our Summer Sunset Garden party
Quick Tip: when recreating this i recommend trying it on a fondant frosted cake or really make sure your cake is chilled… the twine will destroy your buttercream frosting.
Warning: Animal Crossing!!! how stinkin’ CUTE are theses little party hat wearing animal figurines! Dress them up and stick them right on the top of your cake and you’ll have a stampede of people talking about it all day long!
RAWWR… these cakes are DYNO-mite! Again add some simple figurines you can pick up at your local craft store and BAM ready to serve up the fun!
After all these super cute cakes i really want a slice now!
I hope this showed you all that decorating your cake doesn’t have to be super stressful or super expensive either. Sometimes simple = better.
Leave a comment down below on your go to simple cake. any tip and tricks on baking your own VS store bought and as always share if you recreated any of the above!
Cheers & Party on…
