It's DD's 4th birthday soon and although we aren't having a party, I want to make her a pretty cake. Normally SIL makes it or we have got it done professionally but this year I want to try and do it! SIL makes amazing cakes though so if I show up with something crappy then I know I will get told that I should have just let her make it. I'm not much of a baker so was thinking about even buying a plain cake and doing the decorating, anyone got any tips that are pretty easy but will make it look super pretty? Show me some of the cakes you have made, any help is appreciated!!
