Planning a surprise party is no joke! But when it goes off without a hitch and the bestie is totally surprised, all the planning, the organizing, the sneaky lies - worth it!
I wanted to do something unique (she's a pretty awesome girl), and ordering a tank or gym bag from LifeAsRx wouldn't cut it ... so I hit up Hobby Lobby to challenge my 3rd grade level craft skills.
Hours and hours (and days later), I think even Martha Stewart would be proud of the final product.
And I have no idea how I pulled it off, but this crazy cake is a product of my culinary
It started with a vision and a few supplies ... I couldn't find directions on how to make a kettlbell cake, so I kind of improvised.
I Googled as I went along (like wtf is a crumb coating?) and if it'd be safe to keep in the freezer (because the cake was soft and the handle kept slipping off!). Where would I be without you, Google?
The Betty Crocker Butter Pecan Cake mix is da bomb. I also used Fudge Chocolate for the bottom layer (it was 3 layers total).
I was sporting a romper from Kohl's that I bought last summer. I love me a little romper! It's a dress without all that fussy leg-crossing. I also love me some ruffles up top, because I don't really have anything up top. The fashion mags tell me it's all about the illusion people, illusion.
A few of us even got our toes done for the occasion. Shrek-feet begone!
|Not the sandals I was wearing with the romper, promise.|
Hamburger Hoff meets Cake Hoff. We were meant to be. <3
Happy Birthday to my love!
It's a good thing we all made it home before midnight, because this mornings WOD was brutal.
More on that tomorrow ...
