Three of our friends on the street are graduating next week, so we had a party and I got to practice some of the new things I have been learning in my cake class!
Buttercream is sooo much easier than fondant...and cheaper too. I really don't like the taste of the Wilton buttercream, but it is perfect for decorating with so I combined it with some store bought cream cheese frosting to cover the cake and it tasted TONS better.
If you don't know anything about Husker football, then you won't get the "Blackshirts" on the side of the cake. Bondy and I have season tickets for the games next year!!! Sellout crowd since 1962.
