The soccer cake

Happy Birthday Zac!! Zac's birthday was March 20th and he turned 9. He wanted a soccer cake so I made him a soccer ball on a green field. I'm not a professional, but it was fun and the ball actually turned out nice and round. It was fun, and when it was time to cut the cake, everyone wanted a piece of the ball so there ended up being a big hole in the middle of the green field. He loves soccer, but ended up getting a basketball and basketball shoes for his birthday. He wants to try out all kinds of sports. We took him out to eat and he was so excited he got to order from the adults menu instead of the kids. He even warned everyone not to eat his left overs because he wanted to eat them for lunch the next day. He should have duck taped it closed because someone took a few bites he said and he was not very happy. Over all he thanked me for everything and said he had a great birthday. Oh, and I also embarrassed him at school by bringing him a balloon and treats for his class and we all sang to him. He loved everything. Zac and his birthday cake. He finally smiled after 3 pictures.
A better view of the not so professional cake, but fun to make. Zac did the goal post and his name.

I LOVE the cake Julie! You did a fantastic job! It is no easy task to do a soccer ball, and you pulled it off. I love to see pics of cakes. In no time at all, you will be a professional pastry chef!

How did you do the ball? I love how it's raised up. Did you use a pyrex or pampered chef bowl? Zac did pretty good on the writing. I love birthdays. Even though he acted embarrassed at school, I bet he loved the balloons and candy bag. He was very nonchalant.... saying "my mom always does this" but he seemed happy about it. The kids in his class really enjoyed the cookies you brought. HE even gave me the last chocolate one. yum. Thanks!

That is awesome!! I was just thinking about how Zac will be moving up to Bears this month. I had plans to do something different in my advancement ceremony. I like to change it so they don't know what's coming.

Yes Jamie, I used a small pyrex bowl and now Parker wants the same cake for his birthday on Thursday.
