Pink Scrolls and Flowers Cake
How adorable is this?!? I just love the idea of having a small cake and cupcakes for birthdays, especially for kids parties. Not only is it more economical (especially if you make it yourself), I personally think that for a kid, it feels much more special to have your very own little cake, all to yourself. Don't you?
I made this cake for Sophia's 6th birthday and she absolutely loved it! It's a six-inch red velvet cake with pink cream cheese frosting and colorful fondant flowers all over. It's so swirly and girly!
I also made 2 dozen red velvet cupcakes, also topped with pink cream cheese frosting and fondant flowers. And for an extra special shimmer, I lightly dusted them with sparkly gold luster dust. I think with a little bit of patience and creativity, anyone can decorate their own small cake and cupcakes. And if you get the kids involved, you'll have fun and save money too!
