Decorating Cakes!

Love the social life we have during summer... but to be honest I can't keep up with all the cooking and baking to take when invited or when hosting a picnic, barbecue,etc....!

When there is no time for baking from scratch... I confess I buy the traditional cake or cheesecake from the store.... yes I do, I am not proud of it but I do {sometimes}! What I also do to feel less guilty {as with many things in life} I decorate it with a cute flower bouquet {and some confectionery sugar} or some fresh fruit {specially great on cheesecake!}..... and voila you have a fabulous looking cake that by the time you confess the cake was not really bake by you.... nobody really is paying attention because they are all talking about the flowers...!

What are some of the tricks you do to dress up store bought food??

Wow, these look mouth watering. Your creativity certainly transforms the "store bought look" into professionally made cakes. Thank you for the post.

That's such a great idea though when you're short on time!
