Birthday cake

Minnie wanted a Tinkerbell party for her birthday this year.

Frosting-from-a-can is never what you want to decorate a cake with. Buttercream icing is easy to make, colors well and it holds crisp edges when it dries. These drop flowers look fancy but are actually fairly easy. Wilton has some great cake-decorating instructions online with pretty much every technique you could possibly want. And if you were wondering, the Tink charm is hanging from a piece of bent coat hanger that I covered with frosting after it was in place.
