I’m not a huge baker. Occasionally I spend an afternoon with the kids throwing random things at a pan, loosely based around a recipe book, but more often than not substituting ingredients as we discover we don’t have what we need. I need to get better at prep.
But give me a decorating challenge and I’m all over it. Take the time I spent 5 hours pimping this for my 4 year old’s birthday:
Oh yes I did, and had I been blogging back then you can be sure I would have photographed buttercream out of that cake boasting about it! But I wasn’t, so you’ll just have to trust me. So when Jenny laid down a challenge to create a sport themed cake for the Great Bloggers Bake Off for Team Honkfollow, I didn’t resist for long before going into icing overdrive.
