Throwback Thursday Melissa Awesome is a Great Cake Decorator
I LOVE throwback Thursday it gives me a chance to look back on how awkward I was (and arguably still am). Today's Throwback Thursday is from the time I decided to become a cake decorator, and well let's just say I should probably quit radio and start a new career right now (just kidding).My boyfriend is a huge fan of WWE, and he's gotten me into it. So last year for his birthday I did some Pinteresting and decided I was going to surprise him with a homemade birthday cake, but not just any homemade birthday cake, a homemade WWE birthday cake that I found on Pinterest that promised to be OH SO EASY.
Pinterest is full of lies, dirty, dirty lies.
The cake looked easy enough, a little icing here, a little licorice there, and BOOM we have a wrestling ring. So i went to Walmart to pick out a couple wrestling figures for the cake (hey, I'm trying to be cute on a budget here). But the only characters they had in a size that would fit the cake was CM Punk and The Miz, so I figured I'd take it even though his favorite is Dean Ambrose.
I baked the cake, that part was easy, but then I tried to ice it...that's when the whole thing went down hill, and it snowballed from there. In my defense I had TWO people helping me make it and it still turned out to be a cake catastrophe.
Lucky for me Sam found it hilarious, and was a really good sport about the whole thing, and I think he was just happy I put effort into it, but next year I'm buying a cake.
This is how the cake ended up looking. I'm both sad and embarrassed, but here it is, in the name of blogging!
