Birthday Cake Decorating Tips

Since our 5th birthday is only 6 days away, I’m sure many of you are starting to plan out the birthday cake you’ll be baking for us, right?  TSG and I like chocolate 🙂 .  I just finished watching season 3 of Cake Boss: Next Great Baker on TLC.  I love that show, and after every episode I decide I’m going to become a professional baker (that aspiration usually lasts about 30 minutes).  I’m always blown away at the intricate, elaborate detail that goes into every single cake – it’s unbelievable!  If you’re looking for helpful tips on how to decorate a cake, so you can be almost as good as the contestants on Next Great Baker, check out this video from SBTV:
