Easily Transform a Store-Bought Cake

Pazzles Inspiration with Store-bought Cake and Wilton Sugar Sheet Kitty Cat Age 11

My granddaughter had a birthday this month and I wanted to make her a cat-themed cake for her party. In my past ‘mother’ life, I spent many, many hours decorating cakes for my children. I cannot begin to count the number of frosting stars I made to cover shaped cakes!!

I still love to do special cakes for my family but I don’t always have the hours (nor the hand muscles) to make hand-decorated cakes. That is why I love the Pazzles Pastry Tool! It allows me to create beautiful cakes and cupcakes with half the effort and in half the time!

Wilton Sugar Sheet Pazzles Inspiration Die Cut Cat Paw DetailEven if you are a very busy person (or someone with no pastry skills) you can still make a cake that is a work of art. When I need a cake but am too busy to bake, I order a plain frosted cake from the bakery. Then I use Wilton’s Sugar Sheets to decorate it. The Sugar Sheets cut very similar to paper so there is not a lot to learn before you create. There’s a reason we include a Sugar Sheet with the Inspiration Pastry Starter Kit! They really are a great starting point for pastry beginners.

Watch this short video to see how incredibly easy it is to decorate a store bought cake and have it look amazing! You’ll be creating your own custom cakes and cupcakes for your family and friends in no time, no matter your skill level. Have any speedy tricks for cake decorating? Let us know in the comments!

    Brilliant tutorial, just what I needed to give me the confidence to try it out. I have a question….what is corn syrup?

  • Christine Post author

    It goes by the name Karo Syrup here in the US. It is a clear syrup base.

    You could also paint the back of the pieces with frosting that is thinned a bit.

    Joanna, I googled it and apparently you can use golden syrup in place of corn syrup. I hope that helps!
