So much easier than sweating over a bowl of buttercream or trying to use lumpy icing to pipe "Happy Birthday" in something more artistic than a third-grader's handwriting.

You get a totally polished, artsy cake, and because it's so easy to put together, you'll actually have energy to celebrate when your guests arrive.

Kiss your piping bag bye-bye — this is just the first product in what could turn into the biggest cake-decorating trend since fondant.
