Kenson is 6...plus a few of my favorite cake decorating recipes
I used my all time favorite birthday cake recipe, Sour Cream Almond Wedding cake. It starts with a boxed mix but tastes nothing like a boxed mix. It's also a nice, dense cake which makes it great for carving. And I've made it with oodles of variations by adding in extracts, fruit juice, and different frostings. Definitely worth sharing. I also did fondant again for the stripes and number. I used a marshmallow fondant recipe I've used before and it always seems to turn out well. (I did have red fingers for a day or two from kneading in the food coloring paste but I knew that was highly possible since I didn't use gloves.) Last, I love the mini footballs my mom hand cut out of brownies. So easy to add icing laces.
