Oldest's 12th Birthday: Homemade Cake

Oldest's 12th Birthday: Homemade Cake

We used a special cake pan that is shaped like a baseball cap. My wife bakes the cake(s) and I make the icing, fondant and do the decorating. It is very hard to get dark colors out of the icing. The colors on the cake look much light than what the photo shows. I was very happy with the way it turned out, since I only had about 2 hours to make all the icing and then decorate it.

Texas Rangers Cake, homemade cake,

My time was limited because my son would not make a decision on what he wanted. Finally, Tuesday after school he decide he wanted to have family over on Wednesday evening. That left me with the 2 hours after work Tuesday to complete the cake, since the party was going to be at 5:30 Wednesday night.

Thanks Bill and Gloria.

I dislike making the cakes and she (by her words) has no artistic talent! :-)

He had a great birthday from looking at his face and the pictures.

Lisa: Yes, homemade icing in the best and I think the entire cake taste better than anything store bought. Thanks!

Endre: Fortunately the cake shape was preformed and I didn't have to think about that part. Thank you!
