eyeHow To Make A Sunglass Cake

www.familyfun.go.comI just had my birthday, so of course cake, one of my most favorite things in the world, is at the top of my list of best things ever!

Here it is a Sunglass Cake with recipe! Perfect for summer.

Instructions (see pics on site)

Once the cake has cooled, cut off the domed top with a large knife.

Cut the cake in half, as shown, making sure the curve is gradual (an exaggerated curve will create angular lenses). Cut out a 2 1/2- by 1-inch notch on each side.


Flip one half of the cake over and join the 2 pieces at the bridge.

Create the lenses with chocolate frosting, leaving a 1-inch border around the edge for the rims.

Tint the white frosting pink (for our shade, you’ll need about 50 drops of food coloring or 1/8 teaspoon of icing color), then finish frosting the cake. Decorate the pink frames with the sprinkles. Cut the gumdrops in half crosswise, then create star shapes with mini cookie cutters (we used 1/2-inch and 1-inch sizes). Serves 10.
