On the contrary, it is a lot of fun, as there are tons of ideas available. You do not have to stick to baking those boring round or square designs every year. No doubt they taste good, but it's important for them to be as visually appealing as much as they tickle your taste bud.
Easy Decorating Ideas
The key element in decorating a cake for girls, is to include something that they are interested in, or something that represents their personality. This will make it a more personalized design.
A lipstick or an eyeshadow case would be something your girl or her friends will not forget. Try and include different-colored tiny candies and icings to make it more visually appealing.
You can decorate it with white icing to denote unicorns, or if you are creative enough, even a stable with a horse in it! If you want a real challenge, then bake one with a girl riding a horse with real life colors in a beach or a pasture setting. In order to give the clothing, skin, and hair tones a real look, use gel food color.
Hollywood Walk of Fame
If your little girl is a movie buff, then one of the best ideas is a Hollywood walk of fame. You don't have to include lots of Hollywood star names for decorating, the idea is to make a replica of one star who she is a diehard fan of, or make the setting, and include your daughters name in it.
Create one that is completely out of a fairy tale, with a castle, wishing well, and maybe even a frog waiting to be kissed, or a beautiful princess with her prince charming in a beautiful castle.
Try and paint miniature characters from different stories for a more detailed and colorful effect. A great tip is to use decorating dust mixed with water and a little bit of vodka to paint details. You can also decorate it with different colored gems and candies to make it look even better.
Instead of having one large cake, you can even have dozens of small ornate ones or even cupcakes to complement the tea party theme. They are easy to make, and there are a lot of ideas available to make them look and taste great. Another option is to bake a large one with pretty pink icing on white frost.
