The birthday season begins...
Well it's the beginning of the birthday season, and to kick it off It was my nephew's 9th birthday on Saturday, and he loves football! Or you could just say he lives for football, as l'm the one that makes all the family cakes he requested a football themed cake. I knew one of his presents was going to be a football jumper, so l thought l would make him a cake in the shape of a Richmond Football Jumper. I used the Vanilla Bean Recipe from one of my earlier posts with a buttercream icing. The cake was a bit touch and go because the seal on my belovered oven had broken earlier that day, the cake just made it through (just) luckily it just needed some extra cooking time.
He was thrilled with the cake and all his Richmond themed presents!
