Quick & Easy Cake Decorations

I don't know about you, but I love when something is quick, easy, and looks like I spent a long time making it! When I was coming up with ideas for our Vintage Apple Orchard party, I knew that I needed something cute for the cupcakes and cakes. I wanted a shabby chic, vintage feel to go along with the decor, but something that didn't require a lot of effort.

So, I purchased some pretty paper flowers from a great Etsy shop: Discount Paper Crafts and ordered two 6" cakes and two dozen cupcakes without any decoration from our local bakery. I then attached them to tooth picks using a tiny dab of hot glue. I made sure that all the glue "strings" were off & carefully placed them on the our cakes and cupcakes. These aren't made for food, so I did leave a bit of space between the frosting and the flower....just in case!

The result was just what I wanted. Beautiful, unique, and too sweet!! Give it a try...Photobucket
