Mateo was turning seven this year and his mom wanted to make his birthday extra special. I guess Mateo is a big soccer fan because she requested a marble cake with vanilla buttercream in the shape of the Barcelona soccer jersey. I covered the cake in navy blue fondant first, then applied the red striped. I was really excited to get to use my new stitching tool - which worked like a dream! My favourite part of the cake is the Barcelona crest, which I hand made out of gumpaste. Happy Birthday Mateo!
I baked my first cookie at the age of 5, and have been in love ever since. The smiles on people's faces when they taste my creations is what keeps my passion alive!
