Decorating with found objects is always a pleasant surprise. I made this cake with a set of measuring spoons! I had to make a [last minute] cake (sense a pattern?) and I needed a cake decorating idea for an 80th birthday cake. I looked around… and voila!
Measuring spoons to the rescue!
Pretty neat, huh? I added some golden fondant swirls, which mimic piped swirls, painted in gold. This is a great option, especially if you don’t have a steady piping hand, or the time to wait for icing to dry.
Here’s a video on how I made the decorations for this cake!:
Well, I finally decided to put myself in the video! Yes, I’m a real person! What do you think? More of me in the vids? ~_^
