Basketball Cake


Another cake to add to my cake-folio.
This one had a twin and was put in an auction to raise money for a B-Ball tournament. I thought I was being smart this year by actually finding a cake box that would close…last time she got one for the auction, everyone felt the need to poke their fingers in it. I guess they didn't believe it was real cake??!! LOL Anyway, just like last time, they had to cover them again and post a note that said…


"YES! IT'S A REAL CAKE!
DON'T PUT YOUR FINGERS IN IT!!"



I think that's funny! After all...what else could it be - looking like that?? lol

Lesson learned from this cake;

1. The box must be covered with Saran wrap to keep out fingers.

2. Only one batch of frosting is required per cake…anymore will be leftover and will be eaten by my children who will in turn be waaaay too wound up to sleep for 8 days!!

3. Terra Cotta is not the same as "copper" and "copper" is not orange once it's in frosting!

I'm glad they were a hit!
