    Chris from Kansas's Note:

    This is more a technique than a recipe. I made this design for my daughter's birthday cake and I thought it looked really cute. You could use seasonal colors for Halloween, Christmas, etc. too.

      this is such a cute idea.. i used a flower shaped pan for a 70's groovy party theme.. though i think that a egg shaped pan for easter would be cute too... a tip for getting the frosting super smooth on top for writing.. plastic wrap and smooth with hands (or icing spreader) then pipe a border as usual.. (i used white. I tinted the icing with cool aid packets (and a few drops of water) it was like sweet tart icing.. the kids loved it! thanks Chris!
