There are so many fun foods and sweets that you can put on top of cakes, and here are some of my favorites!
- Fresh fruit
- Powdered sugar

- Whipped cream
And those are just a few.
Once you bake the perfect cake, adding the toppings is all part of the fun!
Absolutely. If you don’t want it to be chocolate, just leave out the cocoa powder. You can also experiment and play around with adding other flavors, too. However you want to flavor the cake mix is totally up to you!
The easiest way to tell that a cake is done baking all the way is to use the toothpick test. Just take a clean toothpick and insert it into the cake. If the toothpick comes out clean, it’s the perfect indicator that your cake is done baking and ready to start to cool.
