So, in order to save money, I decided that I would make the cake for baby girl’s birthday party instead of ordering one. And to make it easier on myself, I decided that the cake would come from a box. I would make the frosting homemade but the cake would be as easy as possible.
This plan was mostly fine. The back half of the cake completely caved in and had to be “glued” back into place with frosting. The garland that I made to go on the cake had to be redone. But other than those issues, it wasn’t too bad.
The banner started off pretty easy. Simply cut out a bunch of circles in whatever color(s) you like.
Then, figure out how you are going to attach your circles.
After I scrapped the idea of gluing the garland pieces on, I grabbed a needle and some thread and simply strung the circles onto the thread. I think that this actually worked better than the gluing idea because you can barely see the tape holding the thread onto the white sticks. I would’ve had to figure out what to do with the ends of the ribbon once I had them attached. The thread was easily cut and then ends were easily hidden. (I used sticks that are used in candy making).
