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.
