|Give it some thought: Use your imagination to come up with an idea that is a "custom-fit" for the birthday guy or gal. Think about things that they like to do, or things that they are interested in to get you started. My sister is a Starbucks fanatic, so these cute little coffee cupcakes were a perfect fit for her. Yep, these are cupcakes, baby! Caramel Macchiatto and Strawberries and Cream Latte. YUM!|
|Find a picture of your idea, or sketch one out on paper. Make a copy of the picture, scaling it to fit your cake. Take the picture to your local bakery and have it made into a sugar transfer, or transfer the design onto the cake yourself using a frozen buttercream transfer. I transferred the design onto this cake using the design from a paper plate!|
|Think outside the box: Add some dimension to your cakes by using food, flowers or cake toppers. For this camping cake, a forest of evergreen trees was created by covering upside down ice cream cones with green frosting, and a tent was made by propping pop-tarts up on their sides.|
|Lay it out: Once you have an idea of what you want to do, create a layout. Decide how you want the cake to look, and where you are going to place your picture, your writing, or any cake toppers/decorations you plan on using.|
|Embellish: Embellishments put the finishing touches on your masterpiece! Frosting borders around the edges of the cake make it look professional and are really easy to do. Ribbon makes a great border, too! Just measure a piece long enough to wrap around the cake and tack into place. You can see how it looks on this tier cake.|
That should be enough to get your imagination working. With a little bit of thought and a little more effort, you'll be pumping out creative birthday cakes in no time!
