Pineapple Birthday Cake

Pineapple’s and Cacti seem to be all the rage lately and my daughter has jumped right on board with it all.

This month she turned ten. She wanted a pineapple and cactus birthday party. Well, I like to try and save a buck wherever I can, so I decided to make her cake myself! Learned a super easy technique-on youtube of course- to make her a pineapple cake, made the topper out of an old file folder then ordered cactus cupcake toppers from Amazon, and BAM! Best. Mom. Ever. Well, at least for a few minutes.

Update** A little bit more about this cake. Here is the link to the video I watched to learn a new decorating technique. Very easy, I did not buy the items she uses, you can use a sandwich bag and a spoon – like I did. I also didn’t line up my dots evenly. There is a link under the picture to the cupcake toppers I purchased from Amazon. and I found a free printable for the cupcake liners on pinterest. All I did was trace and cut on construction paper I already had. As for the topper I’m going to upload a printable for you. I just free hand the topper on card stock and then painted it.
