We had a little girl birthday in our home a lil while ago...
I had so much fun making her a dahlia cake.
I've seen a few people around the web make smaller versions of this on cupcakes and I thought it'd be fun in a bigger scale!
It was pretty simple to make.
I just baked, stacked, and frosted two round cakes, and then arranged the petals in top.
The petals are made from large marshmallows.
Just use scissors to cut them in half on a diagonal,
and then dip the sticky inside into sugar sprinkles.
Arrange them onto fresh frosting so that they stick,
add some decorative sprinkles to the center,
and you're finished!
It's a simple and cheap way to fancy up a plain cake, and I'm sure almost any little girl would be pleased to get such a pretty cake! :)
You could use mini marshmallows on cupcakes,
or even experiment with those huge marshmallows
that have been in stores lately!
Any questions? Feel free to ask! :)
