This weekend was G's birthday. B wanted to make a cake that included one of his hobbies. He's a member of the local pipes and drums band.
Last year she found the idea for a hockey jersey cake. And piped the logo all by herself.
(Once word got out about the awesomeness of the hockey jersey cakes, I ended up making a Canadiens cake for M and and Oilers cake for a friend's hubby!)
While it may be hard to top this cake, I think her ideas this year are quite impressive.
Spice Cake from a box. Italian Meringue Buttercream from here (without the strawberry puree). Drones, chanter and blowpipe courtesy of Oreo! Tassels: shoestring licorice!!
