Around this time last year I got a request from an old friend to make her daughter’s birthday cake for her 11th birthday. He daughter is a huge basketball fan and her favorite team is the Celtics. This is what I came up with.
When I first saw this idea I thought it would be very easy to do. Of course, this time around, my fondant was not cooperating with me. It kept on tearing and cracking. I really wanted the “folds” on the jersey to be pronounced.
My first attempt at the jersey just didn’t look good. Too small…too unrealistic. So with about 2 hours left on the clock….I re-did the entire jersey. I re-made my fondant and started all over again on the jersey. With just 5 minutes to spare, I finished it up and my friend arrived for pick up. Whew that was a close one.
You just never know how your fondant will turn out…even if you follow the same recipe time after time!
The cake was hit! Kya loved it!
