A wonderful and inexpensive way to have a beautiful cake at any function is to make it yourself. I've begun using a recipe for home made fondant (sugary "dough" icing for cakes) using powdered sugar and mini marshmallows!
There are about a thousand recipes online and the end results are beautiful and delicious! I've made fondant for a fraction of the cost than you can get pre-made at a craft store! And in my opinion, it tastes much better!
