I did a couple of fun things last week that I thought you might like to see.
I baked the always delicious fudge sheet cake for a dinner that was organized by Sue, who also just happened to be having a birthday that day. Her husband called to say that he had planned on taking a birthday cake to the dinner but since I was bringing a cake he wasn’t sure whether his cake would be too much. I suggested a solution — I would write happy birthday on the cake I was taking. He like that idea.
Unfortunately, I didn’t inherit my mother’s ability to write on cakes. Have you ever tried it? I find it really hard. But since I last tried it years ago, because of my cake ball obsession a few years ago, I’ve become familiar with candy melts which are melted and then used for dipping and decorating cake balls. So, I had a brilliant idea! I’d see if I could make the lettering out of the candy coating on wax paper first and then put them on the cake!
It worked so well I also made some dots to fill in around the words.
And, as a last touch, I sprinkled a little sparkly pink edible confetti on the letters just to make them stand out more.
And speaking of sparkly, I am responsible for making favors for a spring banquet at church in a few weeks. I’m going to make the pretzel candies and crock pot chocolate covered peanuts (you can find the recipes over to the right in my Recipes category if you’re interested)
