Tinkerbell Cake



We've had three {yes, three!} Tinkerbell parties at our house since last November.  I blogged about the first one last year after my oldest daughter turned four.

Then, my husband threw me a surprise Tinkerbell party for my 30th birthday in April.  I thought it was really cute that he did Tinkerbell :)

 {I'm the one in the birthday tiara ;) }

And my youngest daughter turned two in June and she, of course, loves Tinkerbell, so we had another Tinkerbell party!

 {Blowing out the candles on her cake!}

I didn't go overboard at all on this party.  In fact the only Tinkerbell part of the party was the cake.  I mean, she turned two, she was just excited that there were cake and presents there!


I found these edible Tinkerbell frosting decals at Walmart.  I am not a cake decorator.  At all.  So when I saw these, I knew I could at least do something with them!



I also bought cake decorating gel so I could add a little more to the cake.  I used the Tinkerbell colors: purple, green and pink!


For me, this is as fancy as it gets with cake decorating!!!  And it beats buying a cake that I know wouldn't taste as good as homemade.
And this cake tasted GOOD!


Hope this inspires some of you . . . I'm sure there are people out there like me who can't really decorate cakes.  We can't be perfect at everything, right?  But we can at least try!  And I'm sure my two-year-old thought this was the perfect Tinkerbell cake!!!

Now that is a brilliant idea. I am NOT a cake decorator either!! And that sure beats paying $20 for a half a sheet cake at the bakery!
