How to decorate a store bought cake, embellishing it and personalizing it inexpensively. Have you done that before? Decorated cakes can be so expensive and I took a cue from Lauren on how to decorate a store bought cake and make it as cute as can be. Let’s look at what she did! I was so impressed with Iris’s birthday cake when I saw what she did that I wanted to share with all of you. I think you’ll love it too!
Here’s the birthday cake picked up from a local grocery store with Happy Birthday Iris on top.
She bought a few of these cake decorations that are edible along with some cute garden theme items from a store like Michaels. She was doing a fairy garden theme so bought a few thing to try out.
Not the best pictures but you get the idea. Stores like Michaels and Hobby Lobby should have plenty of these type small items.
And here’s how it turned out. I love the tall birdhouse, the teapot, little house, pond, gnome, fairies, and those cute icing flowers. The trees were the finishing touch. With candles and the 5 candle it was so cute!
Iris was so cute when we sung Happy Birthday to her and her little friends were watching as she blew out those 5 candles! Happy Birthday Iris!
Isn’t it the cutest woodland fairy cake? I loved how it turned out and she can reuse these pieces for other cakes down the road.
Hope you enjoyed this little tip on decorating a plain store bought cake inexpensively using a few items from the local craft stores. Please pin for later!
I didn’t have a fashion post today, so I’ll try to get back to it next week.
