Stenciled Sparkle Cakes
Do-it-yourself stencils make it a cinch to create graphic patterns on a cake -- or several. These four-inch versions look great as a group.
HOW-TO: Cut sheets of acetate, available at art-supply stores, into strips, then place the pieces atop chilled frosted cakes (you'll need very smooth surfaces). Dust the cakes with edible glitter dust before carefully removing the stencils to reveal the designs.
