I am not a professional cake maker. I will only make cakes for my kids (cuz they think my cakes are beautiful even when they're not...they are too sweet) and family members who ask. Well my nephew asked me to make his grad cake (his sisters turned out great). He wanted it sports themed. Easy enough. I made all the balls early enough to harden...looked super. My sister wanted the bowling ball to be cake (which I was going to cover a styrofoam ball to make it easy on myself...should have listened to myself). Needless to say, I set up the cake at my sisters house. Looked amazing. Next thing you know the bowling ball rolled off the cake (it had the cap and tassel on it, too) which broke the whole corner of the cake and broke all the tassels off. I was so bummed. I told everyone that I retired from making cakes...too stressful. My other nephew is begging me to make his next year...he gave me the puppy eyes so I couldn't resist.
