- Stick to 1 or 2 layers. You can get these done in 1 day by avoiding long periods of dry time. To add some fun to the design include some wet on wet icing patterns. Same dry time, but a more detailed design.
- Limit your icing colors. It can get overwhelming quickly when you use too many. Choose 3 - 4 colors to work with.
- Skip the fancy borders. Especially if these are heading off to the youngsters' class.
- Use an edible marker. When it comes to the details you can skip the piping bag and grab an edible marker. Same adorable little details - much quicker and easier on the hands.
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!
Ok, so this isn't really for Valentine's Day, but it did have a pink blanket.....
I made my very first cat cake! More specifically a sleepy kitten in a basket cake. Everything was edible (this little kitten is fondant) except the little guys whiskers. The basket itself is actually piped buttercream that I gently painted with food coloring. Hope you like him...or her. This little kitty doesn't have a name.
