What's your Take?

This colorful balloon cake is a brilliant idea for your next birthday bash or special celebration. Icing and licorice make wonderful strings for these tasty balloons made of frosted sugar cookies or snickerdoodles.

What you'll need

  • Baked sheet cake
  • Vanilla frosting
  • Food coloring
  • Two small bowls
  • Knives or small spatulas (for spreading frosting)
  • Icing in a tube or licorice strings (for balloon strings)
  • Round baked cookies (sugar cookies or snickerdoodles work great)

How to make it

  1. Frost your baked and cooled sheet cake with vanilla frosting.

  2. Put a very small amount of frosting in a bowl. Add food coloring, mixing as you add, to obtain the desired shade. Repeat in additional bowls for each balloon color you wish to create.

  3. Frost the cookies and add to the cake.

  4. Use licorice strings or icing in a tube to create strings for the balloons.
