It's time to celebrate with new years cakes!
New years eve is a time to celebrate and bring in the new year with family, friends and loved ones. So what not celebrate with a new years cake!
Regardless of your traditions, rining in the new year is often done by getting together with close friends and family you love and celebrating with the stroke of midnight.
It can be a little difficult to find a lot of ideas for new years cakes, but it doesn't always have to be this way...
**Here are some simple ideas for New Years cakes**
New Years eve is all about bringing in the new year with bright colors, fireworks, glamour, and a big bang!
Think about bold colors or go with a theme like golds and silvers.
You can choose a to decorate a simple sheet cake or you can go with a 3D Cake or a special tiered cake as well.
It also doesn't have to be cake, why not try making New Years Eve Cupcakes? These are a perfect fit if you're throwing or attending a larger party and guests can just grab one as they please instead having someone cut them a piece of cake. Something to think about!
*Even something as simple as frosting a dark chocolate cupcake with white icing and taking chocolate numbers and placing them on top of each cupcake to make the year can be simple, yet elegant*

Chocolate letters, numbers and scrolls look like only professional bakers can make them, but they're actually quite simple to make in your own home. All you need is some melted chocolate, wax paper and an ziplock or piping bag. Here's how....
Print out a computer-generated copy of what you'd like to say, or you can also draw this by hand on a regular sheet of white paper.
Tape this sheet of paper to a clip board. Tape a large piece of wax paper overtop.
Melt one cup of chocolate candy melts or chips in a small microwaveable bowl, stirring every 30 seconds until completely melted and smooth. Don't burn!
Cut the bottom 1/2 inch off of the zip lock bag, or piping bag and carefully spoon the melted chocolate into the bag, slowly sqeezing the chocolate to the open tip of the bag.
Hold the tip of the bag above the clipboard carefully squeezing the bag following the outline of the letter pattern underneath. Once you're done all the letters place in a cool spot to fully dry and harden. Carefully pull the letters off the wax paper and place onto cake or cupcake.
Once you've mastered this you can start making intricate letters and designs!
