I recently stumbled upon this great blog of Helene, that got me very interested in because of her Do-It-Yourself Hello Kitty Valentines Dessert Table post of her daughter’s 3rd birthday. Helene’s blog, MrsMommyHolic, narrates her experiences as a hands-on mom, but there is more to that. I admire how she resourcefully crafts and makes everything so beautiful at home, and this entry is just one of them, which she passionately shares in her blog.
You might think that turning a cake or dessert to a lovely thematic one is quite daunting. Why all the effort when you can just order one, right? But do trust your artistic skills. Helene’s advice here on how to decorate your ordinary store-bought cake can be so simple and easy after all; “If you don’t want to spend on a customized cake that will set you back a couple of thousands, just buy a regular one then add a cake bunting.
I used scraps from my red felt paper banner and cut out mini hearts. Then, I stuck them to my thread using masking tape and tied both ends to the barbeque sticks. You can even add your child’s small toys to further tie it to the theme. I placed a small Hello Kitty figurine from Miley’s toy box and viola! Our very own customized party cake!”
