A simple technique for decorating a chocolate cake is to lay a paper doily on top, sift on powdered sugar, then lift doily off carefully to leave a design.

I often see stencils on sale and would love to have them, but I can only stencil so many walls! They are great for cake decorating.

After you frost your cake, lay the stencil on top and sprinkle with "goodies". You will have an extra special dessert with little added work. Enjoy! Don't forget to use the stencils for scrapbooking!

I found a new set of baby's first birthday party decorations for $1.50 at the thrift store last year (16 each cups, plates, napkins, table clothes etc.) My dh took a plate to the Walmart bakery and asked if they could make the cake look like the plate, and they did. Because of copyrights it looks a little different of course but the theme all matches now for our little ones first party:) So if you come across something you like try to match your cake.

To make a lacy pattern out of icing sugar for the top of a cake simply take a doily, place it over the top of the uniced cake and sprinkle the icing sugar over it.
