On Easter Saturday I had the pleasure of making a really cool birthday cake for my friend Irene's hubby Rob, who turned 29!! The number I'm getting closer and closer to reaching...but for now I will keep telling my son I am only 25, hehe. Now, this cake was quite the challenge to put together, but it was just the kind of thing I needed to keep my creative flame burning. Rob is a Bulldogs fan, and Irene thought it would be awesome to give him a retro bulldogs jersey cake for his birthday! What a sweet wife, huh? This would be my second NRL birthday cake to date...remember this one I made last time? What I found to be the main challenge for this cake was making the two patches: the bulldog and the shield. It required undivided attention and a very steady hand...which was quite hard to achieve at 3 in the morning haha! To be honest, I don't even know what time it was, but I remember not sleeping :-/
I hope you enjoy this cake, be it your team or not :-P...I certainly loved putting it together!!
