  2. Adding a real mask on the Mardi Gras birthday cake is a wonderfully innovative idea. It is simple to make as well. Just add on some glitters and gauzy wrapping paper and you will be the proud owner of a unique cake.
  3. Being an Internet addict helps in more ways than one. All you have to is download an effective online clip and blow it up. Trace it and press it firmly on the surface of your cake to get the requisite shape. Decorating such Mardi gras birthday cakes is fun indeed!
  4. A design of your napkin on Mardi gras birthday cakes? A variation that can add the personalized touch. Simply scan the napkin and print it on paper to trace the design on to the cake.
  5. The old fashioned method of creating every step with your own hands is definitely more satisfactory. Be sure to add some sprinklers and curling ribbons in order to get the grotesque effect of masks on your Mardi gras birthday cakes.
  6. A ridiculously easy way out is to bake two cakes and lay them alongside each other. Carve out the eye holes, add icing and add sprinklers. Voila! You have come up with another winner this time.
  7. A multi layered cake with vibrant green, oink, and white icings create the right effect. Feel free to add a mask or two on the surface and you can actually give it silver wings by transfixing them on to the middle layer.
