The ants go marching one by one
My baby cousin turned one last month and I offered to make the cake for her picnic-themed birthday party! I did some research online and followed the advice from this website mostly - http://www.coolest-birthday-cakes.com/how-to-decorate-cakes.html#c1. The ants are mini M&Ms, the red for the blanket is cut up strawberry fruit roll up and the letters were made by melting mini chocolate chips in a ziplock, piping them into a foiled lined baking sheet, freezing it, them peeling them off and placing them on the cake. It was time intensive but worth it because it was a huge hit!
