Florida Gators BDay Cake

My baby brother is turning 17 tomorrow.  *sniffle*  He's a huge Florida Gators fan, so my mom asked for me to make his cake based on that.  So, here it is!







White cake w/ vanilla buttercream.  The gator emblem on top is FBCT, unfortunately it cracked a little during peeling.  The fighting gator on the side is color flow, as well as the lettering.  I tried to match the gator's font, Kirsty, but it was hard to translate it into royal icing.  I used blue Color Mist to cover the cake, to achieve that nice, intense blue.  #18 shell borders with #31 elongated shell corners.  My favorite cake to date!  My bro better <3 this.  :)

As much as I hate the gators, that's a really cool cake. You did a great job! Hope your brother loves it. :)

TY everyone for the cake love. My brother adored it and didn't want to cut into it. I'll post some reaction pics on my blog tomorrow. I got to trick him with the cake, I used leftover green buttercream for the center filling and told him it was made from pickles. He hates pickles. So I got a good 'big sis' moment in there.
