Celebrations - Quick Cake Decorating

On Sunday we celebrated a milestone birthday in my family for my sister and I volunteered to bake the cake knowing full well that I would need to squeeze this in between a cross-country flight and the party.  Combining that with my very limited decorating skills let me know this was going to need to be a quick, creative solution. Here is what I did.  She had requested everyone come in bright celebration clothes so I copied the theme for the cake.

I baked a double layer white cake with coconut (birthday girl request) and purchased a couple of bouquets of the brightly colored spring flowers at the grocery store. I simply snipped the blossoms and arranged them around the base. We added matching squiggle candles and voila!

A quick, creative solution that required no advanced skills and yet provided a special solution filled with love.  Happy Birthday Cac!
