Has it been a while since I posted a cake? Here’s one that I made for one of our new neighbors recently, in exchange for a night of babysitting.
Rachael was so cute when she came over to ask – “maybe something to do with soccer? and I really like the color blue. want to come see my room? it’s all blue…”
Can you tell how old she was turning? Clue: look at the blue part of the soccer ball.
She plays goalie, so I added a little debossed goalie in the bottom corner.
And also added a fun play on words along the front side: “She’s a keeper!”
She loved the cake, but I think I got the better end of the deal. Not only did I have fun making the cake, but she is great with my kids! How lucky am I to have such super neighbors!

The “making of” post(s) will follow shortly, if you’d like to try this at home but aren’t sure how… (And to remind myself for any next times…)

P.S. Can you believe I gouged this cake with my finger too? Not nearly as bad as the last time, but still!
