Spring Fling Doodle Cake

IMGP0008

Yesterday was our HOA’s street party and since I was already making a cake for Abby’s birthday party I didn’t really want to have to think up something else.  So I remembered Rosie at Sweetapolita’s doodle cake and thought that’s it!

So I made a three layer marbled cake with vanilla buttercream and covered it with vanilla fondant.  I put it into the fridge to firm up and then gave the girls the edible markers and let them have at it.  I added the words to the top but the rest is them!  OMG this was so fun, especially to watch.

This is a fabulous idea for a kids party, or a holiday or really at any time at all!

  5. I love this. We love those food coloring pens. We've used them on marshmallows to make monsters before!

  8. This looks like a wonderful idea. I'd much rather work with fondant than fancy decorating with icing tips. Thanks for the idea.
