We shared some cupcake decorating ideas earlier this week, but if you fancy a bigger project, how about this My Melody strawberry pie on Sanrio’s blog? It includes templates but if it looks too overwhelming you could just make a simpler design with some of the heart and/or strawberry decorations – or start with a readymade pie from the supermarket!
