Last year one day a friend called me up to come along for a casual lunch to celebrate an Aunt's 60th birthday. I had two hours on hand. I wondered if I should cook something, but chose to bake an eggless vanilla cake real quick. With no time for frosting, I just printed out a "Happy Birthday Aunty!" in a hurry, stuck the paper on a toothpick with tape, and inserted it into the cake when I reached there.

I did the same thing few weeks back for a newly married couple, when I baked a layered caked and frosted it quickly with only three hours on hand. My friends put the chocolate powder and chocolate shavings on top instead of plain white cake while I made that quick cake topper within five minutes.

Although this toothpick-and-paper cake topper has been saving the day, honestly I am not even confident about creatively decorating the cake - writing in a neat handwriting, making colorful buttercream rose flowers and leaves, handling the piping bag ... I am scared. May be I should try on a dummy cake some day.
We should face our fears and overcome them, right? Things may probably not be as difficult as they seem.
