For example, that particular pinball cake’s color scheme could easily be incorporated into a kid’s birthday cake. Also, the idea of cut-outs and fun lettering can be duplicated by the home baker. With the help of the right baking tools, the home baker can embrace the creativity aspect.

Companies like Wilton offer all types of products to help the home baker embrace her creativity. Fondant tools can help create the cutouts. Also, colored candy melts can add decorative items to the cake. With a little trial and error, the home baker can create some impressive cakes.
