For birthdays or showers, the instructions are uncomplicated, and I cant wait to try it for a bridal shower I am having in August. Thanks for sharing this, its a great idea.

The oven temp is 180 degrees? Isn't that a little low? The idea is cute but cannot believe that the oven temp is right.

Editor's Note: The oven temperatures are in Celsius.


This would be 350 degrees in Fahrenheit.

That was 180 Celsius, not Fahrenheit. I believe that would be 350 degrees F. This is the cutest cake. My niece has a birthday the 10th of June. I am going to ask my sil if she thinks her daughter would like it. Thanks for the great step by step directions.
