OK, I am waaaay behind with everything I need to post, and my parties are starting to double up.
So here’s one from a while ago……..
I dreamt of all the extra time I would have after I finished baking and decorating all the desserts the night before the party.
Until this cake happened:
“It’s a super simple cake,” you say?
Yes, perhaps it is.
Except I couldn’t figure out how to draw the sports balls on the trim.
I tried to do the designs with fondant on fondant, and it looked ridiculous.
I tried to pipe the designs on with frosting, and it was worse.
After a long time, I finally decided to draw them on with edible marker.
And then I just couldn’t draw the soccer ball design, no matter how hard I tried.
I know, it sounds crazy, but I just couldn’t.
Here are 2 more cakes, to distract you from my complaining:
So back to the original cake– it took me like 3 hours until I finally figured it out.
I must have been seriously tired.
I don’t want to see sports ever again.
Well, except for part 2 of this party post (with the other desserts).
Promise I won’t complain– and here’s the final cake:
See you soon!
