I have been asked to do a birthday cake for my daughter's good friend. The trouble is I am feeling a bit uninspired plus I am a bit out of practice, to top it all last year when I offered a piece of cake to the birthday girl's ultra fit triathalon competing dad, he declined and looked at me like I was trying to feed him toxic waste. So in short, I don't want to break my back over this cake.
The theme is pajama party for a bunch of little girls. I have seen a lot of cakes here on CC and online with lots of little heads sticking out from under the blanket on a bed, but I don't want to be spending a huge amount of time sculpting little heads, it is not my strong suit. Any ideas for something simple yet striking??
Well, I'm no expert at all, but I did throw my daughter a pajama party birthday and the cake is under my photos. I didn't bother with all the little heads either. It was my very first ever fondant cake, so don't judge me!! I had planned to do a robe and bunny slippers, but ran out of time. I don't know if that helps at all, but it is a very simple design - all the girls LOVED it.
A cupcake cake is great for the occassion as it's fun & different. I love this cake for kids parties as it's requires less work & is fun for me to do :0)
You don't have to decorate the whole cake, nor do you have to do each individual cupcake either :0) Ice the top add a simple design & you are done!
