When I offered to make a birthday cake for my friend's 2 sons, I was actually surprised that she accepted since I am a novice who is just starting out. Her boys are 6 and 11, the younger boy is my 2nd son's best friend at Marymount Kindergarten.
Although she liked the giant cupcake cake, but surely I should make something more fun for them. She was open to any designs I had in mind and I finally settled on a soccer ball! Based on the number of guests, a birthday cake was insufficient so I added 34 cupcakes. I made fondant letters to spell out "HAPPY BIRTHDAY GERALD GLENDON" for the cupcakes and also made a few with pastel marshmallow flowers for girls at the party.
Sincere thanks to Beatrice for trusting me! ;)
