Cake Decorating made REAL simple! Fall additions to a yummy apple cake...

Cookie cutters to the rescue for dressing up a simple apple cake . . .  for a birthday celebration. Here's what I did . . .

I made Autumn Apple Cake but divided batter among two small square pans (baked them for 30 minutes instead of the stated time for an oblong cake) but I did use a whole batch of the frosting (per each small cake) so I'd have enough to frost the sides

Next, I made a basic pie crust (or, purchased crust could be used) and used a leaf cookie cutter and spring-loaded pie crust cutters to make decorative additions for the cake. Oh, yes, I sprinkled them with cinnamon-sugar before baking.

Then, it was just a matter of adding them to the frosted cake square, along with a few almonds and sprigs of rosemary. Of course the tree stump cake stand that Barry made certainly adds to the ambience.

And, I again served the cake with Cinnamon Ice Cream.
Fall Birthday Celebration!
