These photos are from a good friend who introduced this birthday tradition with her children a few years ago – decorating their own birthday cake for a family birthday celebration. I thought it was too good an idea not to share!
All you need to do is prepare your cake with an icing sugar and water icing mix and allow time for the icing to set.
Gel writing icing tubes are perfect for adding decoration to the iced cake – just like this set of Wilton Icing Writer Pens. It’s just a matter of letting your child go for it!
Would you let your child decorate their own cake? What are your favourite birthday traditions?
