This weekend we're taking lunch and a mobile mini 'pre-party' to the home of our super-cool aunt and uncle who will soon be celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. They're not foodies and don't like a fuss, but I'm going to make a lemon layer cake w/creme cheese frosting to make lunch more festive.
I'm a decent baker, but I flunked 'cake decorating.' I'm no good w/a pastry bag or fashioning any sort of flower out of gum paste!
Any ideas for ways to decorate my cake that are idiot proof? Obviously I'm thinking gold and I have some gold dragees, but they won't make enough of an impact on their own I don't think. Or I could instead get some small yellow gerber daisies to put in the middle of the cake....
Any ideas welcome. Thanks so much!
