A Cake ready to Party!

As part of a large family, I’m the oldest of six, I’m lucky to have a lot of nieces and nephews and over the years have been asked to make a lot of different cakes for them.  Some have turned out a lot better than others, but they’re always fun.  I have one niece in particular who pretty much asks for a different cake every year.  She’s had princess cakes, treasure chests, dragons…I never know what to expect.  This year I got the call that she wanted a white cake with a disco ball on the top.  I was a little surprised, but figured the hardest part would be finding a disco ball…cause I love her but I didn’t have time to figure out how to make a disco ball out of candy, nor could I think of anything that would really give us that mirror quality, not even poured sugar.  The ball ended up being easy, as I found Christmas ornaments at WalMart and one was a beautiful blue mirror ball.  :)

So all in all the cake came together quickly.  I made my Cheater Chocolate cake in two rounds with a cookies and cream filling, white icing with sprinkles and a disco ball topping.  I think it turned out well and I can’t wait to see what she comes up with for next year.
