Decorating a cake shouldn't be work. So, play instead. Leave the pastry tubes and rosette tips to bakeries, and surround yourself with candy and cookies. Colorful designs can be planned ahead or made up as you go. Add the embellishments just before the party. 

[post_ads]Try using Gummi Bears and almond slivers, as we did, to create bees, then cut out Fruit Roll-Ups letters with cookie cutters. Ideal for celebrating birthdays and events that fall while you're away from home, candy-aisle decorating takes the fuss out of festivities, leaving you plenty of time to sip lemonade, blow up the balloons, relax, and enjoy the party.

It's as close as the nearest candy counter or shop. Let the ideas and combinations pictured below inspire you to come up with distinctive designs of your own. Add the embellishments to an iced cake just before serving.

SWEET SQUEEZE Use little tubes of prepared white icing to dress up bite-sized chocolate-covered cookies. Allow icing about two hours to dry.

ALMOND ADDITIONS Sliced almonds paired with licorice candies become dragonflies, Gummi Bears become bees, and nonpareils, daisy centers.

WORD PLAY Spell out your good wishes in cookies. These one-letter treats come in three flavors. Add them just before the party to prevent softening.

TRAILING VINES Create a pretty border. Place berry-shaped gumdrops or candies at irregular intervals, then unite them with a curling vine of licorice.

CLEVER CUTOUTS Use cookie cutters to create words from Fruit Roll-Ups. For best results, lay dried fruit on waxed paper or parchment during cutting.
Handheld mixers have come a long way. They're lighter, more powerful, compact, and, most important, portable. Keep one on hand for basic recipes and if the party is elsewhere, pack it up and take it with you, so you can mix icing at the last minute.
