What you’ll need:
- Cake with chocolate frosting
- Cake stencil (It’s free!)
- Card stock
- X-ACTO knife
- Cutting mat
- Icing sugar
Print your free cake stencil, which you can download from the link above. (Since it’s our first anniversary, we chose Treat Yo Self — set in Neil Summerour’s Anago — because we love Parks and Recreation. And treating ourselves. It’s really just the best.) Tape your design to a piece of thick paper, preferably card stock. If you don’t have any, you can cut a piece from an empty cereal box and print on the blank side.
Using your X-ACTO knife, carefully cut around the black lines on the template, making sure you’re cutting through the card stock.
Once you’re done cutting out the letters, cut around the circle and tabs.
Place your stencil over the cake, making sure it’s sitting flat. Take your sifter of icing sugar and carefully shake over the stencil, taking care to evenly cover the letters. When you’re finished, carefully lift up the stencil (and try to avoid letting more sugar fall onto the cake).
Add sprinkles or any other decorations you like and serve!
Wish us happy birthday on Twitter using #HBDFairgoods, and you’ll be entered to win a sweet prize. (Ends at 11:59 pm on April 26, 2014, just like our birthday week.)
