How to Make a Freak Cake
My daughter turns four years old at the end of this month and I am busy planning a fun birthday party for her this weekend. I’m planning to throw her a Kitty themed birthday party because like many four year olds, she is obsessed with kittens.
The focal part of any birthday party is always the cake. It’s fun to get creative with cake decorating to make your child’s birthday party extra special.
I had the opportunity to receive a complementary cake from I Love Ice Cream Cake in exchange for a blog post feature. Ice cream cake is definitely my favorite kind of birthday cake and since July is national ice cream month it’s the perfect choice for a summer birthday. I chose the OREO® variety to play with.
This tutorial is an easy and inexpensive way to transform a pre-made ice cream cake into a custom, over-the-top birthday cake that any kid will go gaga for.
You may remember my St. Patrick’s Day Freak Shake that I made last March. It’s a mint milkshake on steroids and loaded with candies and pastries. I used the same concept to overhaul this OREO® cake.
I headed to my local dollar store and stocked up on sweets and treats to add to the cake.
Then I simply placed all the candies on and around the cake to bring the sugar factor to epic proportions.
On this cake there are mini chocolate bars, two types of cookies, licorice, gumballs and other little candies. The cake is tucked away in the freezer until this weekend.
I can’t wait to serve this cake at the party. I know my daughter is going to FREAK out over it.
What’s your favorite kind of birthday cake? Would you ever try transforming a store bought cake into a custom freak cake? Let me know in the comments!
