Birthday Cake Design: Tips and Tricks

Do you want to create a fun birthday cake for your little darling's birthday? Design your own shape to go with the theme of the party or your child's favorite animal. Before you go butchering cake and jamming the pieces together, however, make sure you know what you're doing. If you cut and frost different cake pieces together, here are a few tips:

  • Make sure the cake is cooled completely before cutting.
  • Use toothpicks to mark any measured cuts you need to make.
  • If your cake plate isn't large enough for the finished birthday cake design, cover a large piece of cardboard with foil.
  • To cut up gumdrops and other candies, use a knife or pair of scissors dipped in warm water to get smooth edges.
