Easy Birthday Cake Design For Kids
Want to make your plain looking chocolate cake more appealing to kids? Easy. Just add M & Ms to enhance its look. This cake was for a young boy who asked that I make a chocolate cake for his birthday. Except for the border around the edge and base and the "Happy Birthday " inscription in which I used vanilla frosting to achieve a nice contrast, the cake was layered and covered with chocolate butter cream frosting . I wanted to make it look more attractive to the birthday boy and his friends and I figured the colorful candies would do the trick. I arranged the candies on top of the white border to conceal it. It looked so much prettier with all the colorful M & Ms. The boy was all smiles when the cake was served.
The colors were arranged in orders. For the inscription and the pearls around the base, I used the same small round piping tip. I made a contour effect on top with a triangle scraper.
