I made this cake a few weeks ago for one of our neighbors. The neighbor in fact, who used to live in our house. I’m not sure how it came up, but she discovered my cake and decided she wanted one for her birthday. And I was glad to oblige.
It was funny in fact, because she sent me a picture of the soccer cake that she wanted and said, “Please try to make it like the one in the image.” When I dropped the cake off at their house her mom said, “Wow, it looks just like the one in the picture.” Mission accomplished.
This cake was pretty easy to make as most of the decorations were pre-made. I found the little soccer players at my local cake store as well as the sugar soccer balls. I did make the soccer ball by hand though and impressed myself with my free-handed grid.
It’s been a while since I made a cake and it felt good to get back into it.
