So it is September already….and the air is fresh, crisp and cool. Although today seems a lot like Indian Summer…well in fact it is. So this months featured cake happens to be a Hunting Themed Bithday Cake. I am sure for the [deer] hunters in your lives November 30th cannot come soon enough.

Until then a Hunting themed birthday or party cake will just have to do. This months cake is just that…a deer hunting scene. Before I continue folks….this is not an original idea of mine…the cake was [customer] chosen from ideas gained at Cake Central.com - where you can submit and gain cake decorating ideas. It was a life savor for me (I am new at this—totally green).
This cake is a variation a few cakes I viewed on CakeCentral.com website. So again, it isn’t totally original and it isn’t totally not mine. It ismy own variation. I used most of the idea submitted and then a few variations (ie. the ice cream cone Evergreen tree – upside down, green thin icing using Wilton leaf tip 67 and the fox). The rest is all (I guess what orinally was used in the cake model I used, pretzel logs and sticks for the stand, oreo? cookie dirt and graham craker base and tent (Yes Amy I should have listened to you when we were making Sandra’s birthday cake )- note to self or anyone who cakes…I mean, cares —fruit roll ups are too soft and need to be frozen first…they don’t hold up well with tooth picks …. Anyway…
The only thing I always forget—-PIPING GEL…..yes be sure if you are doing grass or stand up leaves add piping gel to the icing. In any event, the cake came out beautifully and I will keep you posted on the customer reviews.
