{Tip} Premade Fondant Cake Decor

I love making and decorating my own cakes! It's one of my favorite activities in party planning, but it's also getting more and more stressful to find the time. It's getting even more difficult now that I have two kids, one who always wants to be in my arms and another who wants to "help." Typically baking my own cake, designing the look, making all of the decor and then assembling it takes a minimum of two days for me to accomplish.

Some of my homemade cakes. I love the results, but oh the time!

For my Lollipop party I finally ventured into the world of premade fondant decor. Etsy came to my rescue when I discovered Parker's Flour Patch. She has super cute fondant cake and cupcake décor for a great price. I saw her Lollipop cake decor and knew it would be perfect.

I went to the grocery store, as usual, and bought a box cake mix and premade icing. I baked and frosted a simple white 3 tiered cake. Next, I whipped out the purchased cake décor that arrived in the mail and in ten minutes (five of which was spent unwrapping all the pieces) my cake was complete! I am in love with the final product, such a fabulous and affordable way to create an amazing home baked cake!
