Cricut to the Rescue!!!

We celebrated my daughter's birthday a couple of weekends ago. And due to money being tight, I opted to make her cake instead of getting one at a local bakery. While I was decorating her cake, I ran out of icing. So what to do? Hmmmm.....Cricut to the rescue!! I whipped out the big bug and promptly cut out a Happy Birthday sentiment and a few accents. Then I embellished with a little bling. I do wish I would have taken the photo sooner, because the paper was soaking up some of the grease from the icing. Any suggestions for that? (And yes, we did take the paper off before we cut the cake).

So without my trusty ole' Cricut the poor birthday cake would have been very plain.

Great Idea Heather- I have seen people cut stencils w/ their bugs and then lay them on the cake top and sprinkle powdered sugar through them and then remove the stencil.
