Boys Like Grass Stains and Cake. (Click to enlarge!)
Tiffany gave me a photo of a cake she wanted for her little boy, Brayden, so this cake isn't by any stretch of the imagination a "Peggy original." I'm so used to working hard to make my cakes "pretty" that the idea of making one dirty on purpose made me a little nervous. When this cake was finished, I had to go "stain" up the shirt and the baseball. That was so weird. It just felt wrong. I think my heart might have palpitated and I'm pretty sure I broke out into a cold sweat. But alas, I summoned the courage and worked it all out. White almond sour cream cake with whipped vanilla bean filling and icing (colored brown on the outside). Covered with graham cracker/milk chocolate "dirt" and all fondant decor (jersey, banner, baseball). Happy birthday, Brayden. Thank God for little boys or all my cakes would be totally covered in flowers!
