Last week, for fun and for part of my audition tape to the new Cake Boss show on TLC, I made a soccer cleat cake! Nothing fancy…just a shoe with some Adidas stripes down the side.
But instead of writing “Adidas” on the back, I wanted to write a country’s name. At this point, we were down to 4 teams in the finals…and I picked Spain! Why? Because “Netherlands,” “Germany,” and “Uruguay” were too long to write…
But back to the cake…Our friend Mike was visiting last weekend. He’s a big guy. He’s 6’8″ to my 5’1″…to give you an idea of the size difference, I once wore my sneakers INSIDE his and walked around the house. Mmhm. So the boy needs food, and he was eying the cake all night. I finally realized that he was not eating it only because he didn’t want to make the first cut. But as soon as I said, “Mike, please eat some cake.” He stopped what he was doing and said, “Really? How do I cut it?”
It’s always fun to watch people cut a cake for the first time so here are the pictures of Mike cutting it:
Oooo, scary face! Is that the face you make when you play video games???
