A simple ribbon with a bow is a timeless classic decoration that doesn't take any time at all.

Try this technique:

You don't need the extra decorations if it is for family. I haven't tried this yet but plan to soon.

You can also use a cake comb and use it for the side of the cake, smooth the top, and add a border. Fast and easy go to for family. I have done it many times. You could even add sprinkles, jimmies, or fruit to the top of it.

I love the one where you put Kit Kats all around the outside like a basket and tie a ribbon into a bow around the middle, then fill the center with M&Ms. Its so easy and so cute!

I'd go with the 1M roses. You'll be done in 5 min. flat!

I agree with bakerliz. The rosettes are easy and fast and look beautiful. Mine is still my husband's favorite.

I love it when people put one simple peony flower or daisy on top w/ some ribbon.

How about a buttercream ruffles? All you need is the rose tip. Easy and fast. I agree with the others the petals or the rossettes are fast and easy too.

Karsn for that cake you only need a 1M tip and you just make swrils sarting from the center of each rosette. until the cake is covered. Iambakers site has a tutorial I believe
