Check out this crafty and ingenious technique my aunt used to decorated my cousin's birthday cake! Instead of whipping up another color of frosting and relying on a very steady hand to trace Pooh's outline and draw his face, she used mini chocolate chips as the outlining border!
This clever and quick method saves time and aggravation. No need to try and cover up any mistakes. Just re-apply the chocolate morsels! My aunt also added full-size chips to the bottom of the cake, where the frosting meets the serving tray. This visibly adds dimension to the cake as well as hides anything unsightly.
Here's a short list of other creatively cheats you can use to decorate cakes, cupcakes, or even gingerbread houses:
- White Chocolate Chips
- Mini M&M's or Regular M&M's
- Pull and Peel Licorice
- Butterscotch Morsels
- Red Hots
- Jelly Belly Beans
- Cocktail Peanuts
- Or any other variety of your favorite snacks and sweets!
