AHey i am new to cake decorating i have made a few cakes and enjoy doing it its my sisters birthday coming up on 22nd so looking for some simple but pretty cake tutorials that i can try any help will be appreciated :)
What does your sister like? Perhaps you can make something that pertains to something that she is passionate about.
I've been known to riff on the number itself: a speed limit sign for 55; playing cards for 52; the old Emergency! TV series for 51, phonograph records and/or Victrolas for 78, and so forth. If I were making a 76th birthday cake for somebody who wasn't self-conscious about the age, I'd do something on the Second Continental Congress: either Independence Hall, the Declaration of Independence, or the Liberty Bell (or more than one of the above).
Not quite sure how 22 would fit in with that strategy; just try free-associating on the number (though all I get when I do that is a local freeway!).
When I want a quick, easy yet beautiful cake, I go to the rose swirl (I am baker) technique or the buttercream ruffles. I don't have to mess with fondant and they look so pretty and girly!
AShes really girly i was thinking maybe something with butterflies or one with spots and stripes
You should browse the galleries and see if you can find something that you like. That's where I go when I need inspiration!
22..."2 little ducks" !!!!!
This is what i ended up with (it says kirsty)
I agree! This cake is nice and girly, and you can stick some butterflies on wires on the cake and it would still suit your theme and look right

ETA: your cake looks lovely :)
