roll on roller derby queen cake

 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


  1. Oh and the indentation at the bottom near the purple lifesaver is the spice jar that fell out of the cabinet!!! Can you believe it?! Well, you'd say yes if you saw the spice cupboard! lol

  2. Absolutely fabulous cake! We had a roller rink near my house growing up, oh the memories!
