Turn a $7 Cake into a $50 Cake in 10 Minutes
You’ve probably seen a lot of beautifully decorated Easter cakes in magazines, store fronts and on your favorite food-related websites. These stunning creations desperately want to make it to your Easter table, but they come at a very high price.
A professional baker’s Easter basket cake can be expensive, so it’s a good idea to DIY your own. A specialty cake can often cost you upwards of $50 to $100, which makes it an extravagance you may not want to splurge on. However, with this quick and easy DIY, we’ll show you how to dress up a store bought cake and turn it into a show-stopping Easter dessert for a fraction of the price.
Store bought frosted cake
Chocolate, candy coated Easter eggs (such as Robin’s Eggs)
Kit Kat bars
Tube of decorator’s icing
1. Break your Kit Kat bars into sets of two sticks, and using a little decorator’s icing to secure them, line them up all around the outside of your store bought cake.
2. Secure the Kit Kat ‘basket’ with a ribbon…and tie a nice big bow.
3. Top the cake with a mound of chocolate eggs.
4. Twist your armature wire to form a handle and press either end into the cake, just between the chocolate basket and the actual cake.
Kit Kat bars are great to work with, as you can break them into the exact size you need. If you’ve made your way around the cake, and you’re left with a little gap that won’t fit two sticks, just break off one and fill it with that!
Remember, if you see something you want, but don’t really want to spend on it, chances are there’s a DIY solution just like this one.
