Does every little girl have a pair of pink roller skates with hot pink wheels? I did, and I remember skating on them until the stopper was worn to a nub. Ah, those were the days…
But, anyway, last week Debbie and I got to create a pink roller skate for Rachel’s 6th birthday party! Debbie carved the cake, and I decorated it. They told us they wanted pink – lots of pink.
So we gave them pink!
And the laces and pom-poms were made of fondant. I love putting little stitch marks on cakes. It adds extra detail that, in my opinion, really enhances the cake appearance without adding a lot of decorating time if you use a little stitching wheel like this one!
I made a confession to Debbie today. I told her I will always try to “steal” the fun cakes like this one before she can decorate them. It’s a major character flaw of mine. I could say I’m trying to improve…but that’d be a lie. I just love to do the fun cakes! Is that so wrong?!
