My young son just turned 5! Boy, where has the time gone? Usually I make the cake but this time I opted for easy and bought a plain vanilla cake from the grocery store.
Since this cake was for a birthday, it needed a special touch for my boy.
So this is how I decorated a plain store-bought cake.
Most stores will add writing for free, so that was the first step.
I've seen bunting as a cake topper online.
But my son wanted a superhero cake so I made a Superman style bunting.
First I needed to make a template of the Superman Emblem. I googled it and clicked on images.
Then I pushed my laptop screen all the way back and VERY GENTLY traced.
I made a couple stars as well. Cut them out of cardstock and tape to some yarn. I ran out of bamboo sticks but had chopsticks. So I used those instead.
There you have. Low cost with big effect.
