The Most Beautiful Cake You Can Make

When I spotted this vintage cake in that vintage Airy Fairy booklet, I fell in love. Such a pretty pastel cake with bunnies and chicks around it! All the decorations are completely edible  (No wasteful decorations!) and easy to make, even for those of us who haven't mastered frosting bags, etc. because the chicks and rabbits are iced cookies!

While the cake shown is an Easter Bunny & Chicken cake, why not use different cookie cutters and icing colors for other occasions? Like pink hearts on a white cake for Valentine's Day? Or make a birthday cake using cookie cutter shapes that fit the personality of the birthday boy or girl? The possibilities are endless -- pretty and delicious too!

This cake is made using the following foundation recipes: Butter Cake, Quick Cooked Icing, Roll Foundation Cookie Dough, and Uncooked Icing.

What a great idea! I've often used cookie cutters to create shapes for tracing in frosting, but it never occurred me to put actual cookies on the cake. I'll have to remember this for the future.
