We stayed in this really awesome condo in a corner unit with a wrap-around balcony that had an amazing view of the ocean on one side, and a view of the bay on the other side! It was the best place we've ever stayed. Also because they had cake pans and an electric mixer in the kitchen. ;)
What's really cool about this cake is that anyone can make it. Seriously, I left all my favorite baking things at home and had to use whatever our condo had. I got a funfetti cake, some icing that comes with sprinkles in the lid, and blue icing that you can buy in a can that comes with its own decorating tips. Super easy and a quick clean-up! Perfect for college and dorm rooms.
I still have a hard time frosting cakes and making them look flat and knew that wasn't going to happen here, so I just made little swirls with the back of a spoon. I think this makes cakes look fancier anyway.
Sometimes I sort of have an idea about what I want a cake to look like, but most times it doesn't turn out like I want it to and I have to change it up. I like how this one turned out though. I love how the blue frosting matches the blue in the sprinkles!
I took a bunch of super close up photos. I just love them for some reason.
I wanted the top to look like the sprinkles exploded.
Mission accomplished. :)
Happy Birthday, Laura! Hope it was a good one :)
