It has become more common to get a free pass when it comes to cake decorating. I have had friends ask me for a special occasions cake and said to me: “make what ever you want”. Nothing wrong with that, but I do enjoy it more when they ask for what they want with more details and all. It becomes less stressful, I think. My main wish is to please them and for them to completely love the cake.

I throw some ideas around taking into consideration who is getting the cake and the occasion in which they are getting it. Cake flavor and colors are the most I insist on. Most people have a favorite flavor and a favorite color. As time goes by I fall more in love with baking and decorating cakes. I am very blessed!

During this month I made this cakes for different friends with similar ages, both birthdays. Hope you enjoy and feel inspirided to try making some gift box cakes.
