Nope, this isn't a cake decorating tutorial! It's just a simple idea, based on the cake my friend Mary made for her son's last birthday. He's very into 'flying things' right now, so she bought some little tiny toys at the dollar store to put on top of his iced cake. So he had a yummy cake with yummy icing - then the hot air balloon, helicopter, airplane and other toys made it extra cool to fit the birthday theme of flying things. He loved it!
You can do this with anything that's plastic and easy to clean - characters, trains, cars, legos, blocks - whatever your child loves. Just sanitize the toys before and after caketime!!
