Last weekend I made my husband a birthday cake. Our family doesn’t make big fancy cakes. We usually try to eat healthy, so we don’t want lots of extra cake lying around. ( This might change, as our only child has not celebrated his first birthday yet) I don’t have many fancy cake decorating tools, so I made some up with what I had!
I made my husband a Zebra cake with white icing. A plain white cake would be just a little too boring. I happened to have a star sandwich cutter. I used it as a stencil on the cake.
I sprinkled my sprinkles into the inside of the cutter. ( When I removed the cutter, I then also sprinkled over the line in the middle)
And that is how you repurpose a cookie cutter ( or a sandwich cutter) into a sprinkle stencil!
I like my husbands simple birthday cake! It looks cute and I didn’t have to spend extra money on decorations.
