Dale Earnhardt Jr. Cake & Slush

A woman my mother in law works with is retiring soon. She happens to be a fan of Dale Earnhardt, Jr, so my mother in law asked me if I could make a cake for the occasion. Now I know it isn't perfect. But it's done. I just hope she likes it! I was originally going to do the bottom cake green or maybe grey, but I was worried about not coloring enough frosting to cover it, OR, making too much and not having enough for the other colors. So I went with white.


I printed the 88 and used candy melts to trace over it. I piped the white outline with royal icing.



The Amp logo is also royal icing. I was planning on taking it off the wax paper and putting it on the cake, but it didn't want to dry so I had to keep the wax paper on. She said it was fine. I wish it would have come off though.



She also requested a twist on the rainbow slush. A Dale Jr slush!



I hurried to get it all finished yesterday because I thought she needed it today. Turns out she didn't need it until tomorrow. Oh well, at least it's done!

This looks great! And anyone who has ever decorated a cake knows how hard and long it is to do all those stars! Nice work!

Good heavens that looks like a lot of work! I think it turned out wonderfully! My son asked me to make a zucchini bread cake with cream cheese frosting for his bday next week... I am not a cake decorator by any stretch... so I'm hoping it's not a disasterpiece lol. I'd like to invite you to share this at my VIP party this weekend. http://designergarden.blogspot.com/2011/04/vip-party-12.html
