Miss V was traumatized a few years ago when I ordered a GIRL bowling cake and didn't look at it when I picked it up. When it was cake time and opened the box, it clearly is not a girl on the cake. Since then she asks that I do not order a cake from the grocery store. I have learned how to make a Monkey Face cake and a pair of flip flops for the past two years. This year since she turned 10 we said she could have a BIG birthday party and she chose bowling with a few of her friends.
Then began the search for bowling cakes. One of my friends sent me lots of cute idea and Miss V said she liked the most elaborate cake scene...I explained that I don't have that kind of talent. Her response was cute "But Mummah, I have faith that you can make this, you are the best!" With that comment, I couldn't let her down.
So I did the best that I could and it came out pretty good. If you ask her it is the coolest birthday cake EVER!
So here is the process...pretty simple. A batch and half of rice krispy treats, Wilton Sports ball pan, premade fonant, canned white frosting, and food coloring.
I also made a batch of cupcakes and cookie bowling pins.
Happy 10th Birthday Miss V!!!
