Stephanie's quick tip for decorating birthday cakes:
We were decorating the cakes for our twin boys' 2nd birthday when I realized I had bought the wrong decorating supplies. No longer able to make black icing at the last minute, my mother in-law suggested we use toys. Our boys love Mr. Potato Head, so that's what we went with. It was easy, fast, and the kids got decorated cakes without any colored frosting!
Those cakes are hilarious! Just be sure to wash the toys first (we all know what two year-olds do with those Mrs. Potato Head lips!).
