I have a cake to deliver for FGC tomorrow.  I'm excited about this one because I was able to incorporate fondant decorations for the first time.  The only direction I had was the age of the boy... 12!  What a tough age.  I didn't want to pick a sport and choose the wrong one.  I didn't want to do something I thought was "cool" and he think it's "lame", so I went with blue and simple.

I guess I got a little bake-happy and decided to do 3 layers, 2 cake flavors, and 2 frosting flavors... I wish I was invited to the party now.
yellow, chocolate fudge, yellow
I leveled them and stacked them with chocolate frosting in between each layer.  Later, I'll show you what a did with all most of the leftover cake!  Then I frosted the outside with my homemade vanilla buttercream icing and smoothed it out with a magical Viva papertowel... They have a special spot in the pantry, and no one is to use them for anything but smoothing icing. :)  Yes, THAT magical.

Then the fun part: playing "play-doh".


Then toss them on the cake wherever they land, add a name and border.  I hope he likes it!

Happy Birthday, Kevin!
