My oldest turned 5 yesterday, and to celebrate I made this cake for gezzert. It was a little harder than I though it would be. I printed out the number 5 on regular printer paper and used toothpicks to stick it into the cake. The frosting was semi-hard at this point so the paper didn’t stick to the cake. Then I thought I would just shake the sprinkles on and the cake would be done. Instead I had to spoon them on, and push them into the frosting. I was wondering if the frosting should still be wet? But not too wet because the colouring of the sprinkles would run. If anyone knows a better way please let me know. Then I tied water balloons to wooden skewers, stuck them in and voila. The birthday boy was very concerned that the heat from the candles was going to pop the balloons, rest assured that didn’t happen. Now who wants cake….
