My son just turned 16...16! Wow that was fast! We had his birthday celebration tonight and look at what I did for his cake! I bought these edible strips, baked a cake, frosted the cake and trimmed it with black, and then covered it with the edible strips. Not bad for first timer with edible strips eh? I think next time I should put the strips on first, then trim with black! Oh well, it was fun and the boys thought it looked awesome!
