It was my Honey’s 50th birthday recently, but tonight we are getting together with all his siblings and spouses.
Events with them are always awesome. We are meeting at restaurant but I’ve decided to make my own cake.
He’s a huge sports fan, so I thought a sports themed cake would be cool.
So let's start at the beginning. I was very short on time, since this was a last minute decision, so cake mixes just had to do.
I made a Chocolate cake and a French Vanilla..(you just can’t go wrong with those)
While I was waiting for the cakes to bake I mixed up some blue fondant.
I iced between the layers with chocolate icing.
Crumb coat, (or dirty ice) the cake with butter cream or regular frosting. Refrigerate iced cake for at least 45 minutes.
Cover with white fondant
With some of the blue fondant I traced the number 50 from cut outs that I printed off earlier.
I did the same with the letters for the name.
I added some white fondant sleeves, blue stripes and a neckline.
I also started on this little guy. From a blue blob…
…came a hockey player… that oddly enough started to look a lot like my honey, (giggle!)
He looks pretty exhausted doesn’t he?
And now for the whole cake! You can see the cut out Maple Leaf on the sleeve.
Happy Birthday Sweetie! 50 never looked better.
