Want a fun and budget friendly way to have a fab cake at your next baby shower or birthday party? Check this out! I love to decorate and design; it’s another form of DIY that translates into an outlet of creativity for me. I am by no means a “Betty Crocker” (hence the reason I enlist some very talented ladies for my cake decor), but I do love to experiment in the kitchen.
It all started with my son’s birthday party last year when I found myself in a last-minute panic to find a fab cake for his 1st birthday that took center stage for his sweets table. Instead of baking my own, I ordered up a basic three-layer, simply iced cake from my local Target bakery and added the rest myself!!
The next few cakes were for a baby shower, an Easter party and The Plush Event—they all had a similar design approach.
And, here is the most recent from my baby shower!
The options are endless. If you feel like whipping up a box cake, you can save a few bucks, or take a shortcut and have a local bakery do the baking for you and save by adding your own custom decorations/embellishments. Either way, both are budget-friendly, custom, high-end looking options. Happy Caking! Have some cake decorating tips to share? We’d love to hear your ideas!
