"At Baskin-Robbins, we're always looking for delicious and festive ways to
celebrate different seasons throughout the year with our guests," said Stan
Frankenthaler, Baskin-Robbins Executive Chef and Vice President of Innovation
at Dunkin' Brands. "This spring, we wanted to create a memorable cake that
really brought the season to life with bright colors and a whimsical design.
The Chick Cake will not only delight ice cream lovers, but will also
effortlessly serve as an impressive centerpiece that will brighten any table."

To help celebrate spring, Baskin-Robbins has partnered with popular craft
blogger, Laurie Turk of TipJunkie.com, to share fun and helpful tips for
creating the perfect tablescape featuring the Chick Cake this season.

"I love entertaining and I'm always looking for new ways to surprise my guests
with creative and thoughtful touches for a party setting," said Turk. "The
Baskin-Robbins Chick Cake is so adorable, it's a centerpiece on its own, and
lends itself well to decorative complements that taken together create a fun
tablescape that really celebrates the season of spring."

Here are Laurie's tips for a "do-it-yourself" tablescape for the
Baskin-Robbins Chick Cake:

  oStart at the bottom. Decorate from the bottom upward - table cloth, place
    mat, plate, etc. It's important to have a solid foundation from which to
    build off. Consider using wrapping paper instead of a plastic table cloth.
    You still have the benefit of a clean and more sophisticated look, with
    all of the fun patterns and colors to choose from.
  oAdd comfort. Objects that grow naturally bring warmth and a comforting
    feeling to your guests, so be sure to add plants and flowers to your
    table. This also applies to fabrics and ribbon (such as those made from
    cotton).
  oLayer. Create an eye-catching table by adding dimension and layers to your
    decor. Instead of putting the napkin on the side of the plate, place it on
    top with a ribbon for a pop of color. Resist the urge to place things in
    rows and try putting them on top of each other instead.
  oMix patterns. There are two different types of patterns: organic and
    geometric. Geometric patterns show straight lines, circles, triangles,
    rectangles and polygons. Organic patterns are shapes we find in nature
    like leaves, flowers or waves. The key to mixing patterns is to use one
    organic and one geometric pattern. Mixing two or more of the same type of
    pattern becomes messy and makes it hard for the eye to focus.
  oKeep it simple. When planning any tablescape, stick with two or three
    colors. Many times adding a fourth color can quickly take decor from chic
    to cheap.
