My niece's birthday cake...roll on! She is turning 8, and is quite the spit fire. I offered to make her a cake, but she has no idea what style. I decided to make a roller derby queen cake with homemade buttercream frosting.
I used two 13"x9" pans and 2 marble Duncan Hines (the best in my opinion) cake mixes.
I let the cakes cool *uncovered* overnight. In the a.m., I popped them into the freezer for about 15 minutes, so I could cut them easier.
I placed one cake on top of the other, using a very thin layer of homemade buttercream frosting.
Following a pattern on tissue paper, I made the skate boot and cut the pattern into the cake.
Next, I frosted the cake top to the edges and smoothed all of the frosting out with a paper towel.
I added life saver lace holes, and frosting laces all the way up. I added DOTS candies and PEZ for some fun!
Then, on the bottom, the roller skate was completed with 4 Oreo strawberry milkshake cookies, glued with buttercream frosting.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY! This one's for you kid! ;)Auntie
