I bought this vanilla lemon cake from Trader Joe’s yesterday, because I wanted to show you all how you can easily change the look of this cake in about 10 minutes! If you’re busy and don’t have time to make and decorate your own cake, you can buy a plain white or chocolate one and then personalize it to your liking! The cake only cost me $8.00 and it tasted so delicious! Read below to see how you can transform a cake too 😉
Awww, look at this poor lil’ cake… it even has a strange green blob on top! Find a cake stand and with a spatula remove the cake from the cardboard. It’s okay if you mess the bottom up a little because it will be covered.
Practice using different frosting tips. If you don’t have an actual plastic frosting bag, use a Ziplock bag! They work perfectly, haha 🙂
I used the tip on the left, started from the top and went back and forth all the way down… like a zig-zag. This cake isn’t huge, so it only took a few minutes to go around the whole cake! It shouldn’t take you long and don’t feel like you have to make it perfect!
Once the sides are done, you can do the top in the same way or how ever you want! A little tip for the top: start from the outside and do one circle at a time, working your way into the middle.
Decorate your cake with a fresh flower on the top or side…
Or since this is a lemon cake, I decided to add fresh slices of lemon around the bottom 😉
Also, yesterday I received a great surprise when I saw this! Thank you Jeannie over at Project Wedding for the sweet words and post!!
