Beautiful Cake Decorated with RosesHow To Decorate A Cake Easily (sort of!) ­čÖé

I’m always looking for fun photos and projects that show easy and natural ways to decorate. That’s because I don’t have the patience that:

1) my sister-in-law Anne does for decoraing the amazing cakes that she always wows us with,

2) my “honorary daughter” Maddie does (see her cute “tie dye” cake that she brought us a few weeks ago here), or

3) the people at Calandra’s Bakery in my hometown of Fairfield, NJ do (I mean, really… have you EVER seen the bakery window of a place like Calandra’s? Next time I’m visiting, I’ll ask them if I can take a photo!)
