You don't need to be a professional cake decorator or pay store bought cake prices in order to create a simple and creative Masterpiece! All you need is a cake mix, icing, and a little creativity. My Mom made my sister and I's birthday cakes growing up and I loved them because they were from her. When my first daughter had her 1st birthday I wanted the perfect cake to celebrate this wonderful milestone so I bought it. $25 later I brought it home and it was perfect and professional, but it didn't reflect who she really was. I decided from then on that I would attempt to make my own cakes. 8 kids later I have a lot of ideas for you!
