Roller Skate Cake

Ah, finally a break from nail polish posts! Not that I’m complaining but I do like the break things up a bit. And I haven’t posted a foodie post in a while.

Last Friday was my friend’s birthday and seeing as she plays roller derby, I thought it would be perfect to make a cake made in the shape of a roller skate! I went to Pinterest and searched for a similar cake, most of them were ones that are standing up but eventually I found this one with a tutorial of how to cut the right shape. I waited for my cake to cool completely before cutting, then put on a crumb coat and let that sit in the fridge and then applied the final icing coat. I cut a start out of tin foil to act as a star stencil and used strawberry laces as the real laces! I’m pretty happy with how it turned out and even happier to report that it all got eaten too! Worth carrying into the bar in an empty Stella Artois box.

  1. I love that! I am terrible at decorating cakes.

    1. Thank you! All it takes is a bit of practice, I'm still not great at other things baking wise!

    1. Thanks Chloe! I'm glad I had that link above with the tutorial otherwise it would have been a mess!
