A Fun Cake to Help Your Kids Learn Their ABC

A Fun Cake to Help Your Kids Learn Their ABC

Let’s get back to school! This alphabet cake is just a bit of fun and so easy to do — my 16-year-old daughter actually helped create it as a bit of down time in between her GCSEs! She chose the colours, letters and numbers. We made the letters together and Charlotte was in charge of artistically glueing them onto the cake. This would be great for preschool or someone working with numbers and letters. You could also colour-code it to suit your theme.

This project was created and written by our Cake Ambassador, Cassie Brown.

Zentangle Cake: Ditch Sprinkles for Edible Pens

Zentangle Cake: Ditch Sprinkles for Edible Pens

This cake is a little time consuming, but you can really have some fun with your design. I did a little research on the internet first to look at different zentangle designs in colour. It’s amazing what’s out there – I found lots of inspiration! When I received Wilton’s Edible Food Writer Markers I was worried as they have quite a fat nib, but to my surprise, they write really well. I can draw very fine using them, as you can see in the dotty pattern I designed.

This project was imagined and created by our Cake Ambassador, Cassie Brown.
