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. :)
That is a seriously impressive cake!
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.
