A perfectly baked and frosted cake is quite delicious, but let’s face it, it’s the decorations that make it special, especially on your little man’s special day. Decorations level up the fun and festive factor, but the measuring, mixing, and mess can turn the process from fun to frustrating when you want a party-ready cake.
Even if you can bake and frost a cake like a champ, you don’t always have time to do it all. With a little creativity and some simple supplies, you can create a cake that will, well, take the cake on that special day.
