We're celebrating with his family and watching the game later on, but here's a quick post to let you know what cake we'll be eating!
After last year's Game Night birthday cake I was wondering what I could do this year... Cue some crazy ideas way above my station and off I went! I was drawing ideas for days, planning the flavours of cake and the buttercream fillings... My ideas are definitely TOO crazy sometimes and there are things I should probably realise I cannot get done on a Saturday after work in the morning, with a music birthday party for a 3 year old in the afternoon, but alas - Sunday morning has arrived and I am still alive and did get 6 hours sleep!
Here's how it looks...
|Super Bowl/ Birthday cake with Jonathan's favourite |
things to top it off!
|Popcorn was the only non-cake non-icing thing here!|
|I couldn't have a Super Bowl cake without |
a ball now could I!?
|A few shots with my macro lens!|
|Ravens vs. 49ers colours :-)|
|SO pleased with how this turned out!|
A basic run-down on the flavours before I go...
Bottom (pitch....hmm field?) layer - Red velvet Cake with Buttercream filling.
Middle (team colour) layer - Vanilla cake with Vanilla syrup, Buttercream and cherry filling.
Top (Coke!) layer - Chocolate cake with Salted Caramel Buttercream filling.
I promise to write about the recipes I used later on and add in some links, but for now there's a birthday party to get to!!
