At Sunday School, we recognize the kids' birthdays, but it seemed sort of boring without a cake and candles, so I made a pretend one. Schoolteachers could also use it in their classrooms. Or use it as a table decoration for your child's party, especially if you are serving cupcakes or cookies instead of a big cake. This idea would work for a wedding cake as well.
Approximate Time 15 minutes, plus paint drying time
*You could also use this idea to make a wedding cake for a bridal shower. Omit candles, and place plastic bride and groom on top. Decorate with white pearls-by-the-yard, etc.
Caution: don't leave this faux birthday cake unattended within the reach of small children who might be tempted to light their own candles!
