Happy Birthday to You Matt and Steve

I'm okay at decorating cakes but it is such a tedious job.  I am finding that "decorated" cakes are so much more fun -- none of the fancy sculpture just decorations.  This one above uses a butter creme frosting, chopped walnuts on the side.  A drizzle of red icing in a circle (in a wavy type pattern) and then garnished with strawberries cut in half (including the green stem).  Add candles and a happy birthday script and you have it.  Great looking - almost foolproof.

Share a few good birthday books:
