My birthday is just around the corner, so Mom has been brainstorming party plans. She wants to make my cake because she thinks it's much more special than ordering one. But she doesn't want to make an ordinary cake (I'm not an ordinary boy, you see). . . She's aspiring to tackle a 3D Elmo (my favorite character these days). Daddy of course laughed (he underestimates her ability), so she felt the need to prove herself. She decide to make Uncle Ethan a 3D football cake for his birthday. . . For a trial run she use standard cake pans and carved a football. It turned into a mosaic of cake pieces, not exactly servable (although it was yummy!) as you see below. :)
Icing is quite forgiving, covering a multitude of sins (sins probably isn't the right word but it seems to go with "covering a multitude" . . . you know you're a Christian when) . . . :)
Thankfully, Grams bought Mom a football cake pan so Uncle E's cake would turn out a bit better than the trial run. We were very pleased with the results.
HaPpY 20th, Uncle E!! :)
