Hi everyone,

Friday is my birthday. I usually buy a cake because I love how a bakery decorates. However, this year I think I want to save money and make my own cake (I love baking cakes, so it's no big deal... I just get nervous decorating). I'm going to post an image... how easy do you think this would be? I don't want to work with fondant, so it would definitely be icing.



or maybe just the faces and I can do the logo smaller with "Happy Birthday."

Thank you!

Not too hard if you don't mind tracing the image first onto parchment.

Neat. I love her Rolling Stone one. I'm interested in what she did after the cake mix with the butter, the sugar, an egg, vanilla and Starbucks coffee mix. I might have to do that! Thank you so much.

Maybe I'll do this one since I'm a 4th of July baby.



Also working with other colours. Thanks again... I'm really excited now.

Yeah, maybe not. I was thinking about it while driving with my folks today and that might not be a good starter piece. Monoxide is my favorite of the group (I have a huge crush on him), so maybe I'll stencil him and write "Happy Birthday" in the Twiztid font.
