Here is the cake I made for my husband's birthday. I didn't plan on making him a cake because I just assumed he was sick of cake. But the night before his birthday he asked me if I could make him a cake. Consequently, I didn't really have a plan for this cake. I made it orange because its his favorite color, and blue because its a nice contrast to orange. I originally made this cake to be single tiered. But with the single tier and the covered cake bored, it looked EXACTLY like an ugly hat so I added another tier. I just did whatever I felt like doing and the end result turned out looking like a basketball. I'm ok
ay with that, even though neither Erik nor I are basketball fans.
The sad story about this is he didn't even eat a single piece...family got to it before he even had a chance!
