For a few birthdays we made Davids dad some cakes usually Jayhawk themed (Kansas University Mascot). This year I decided to do a Jayhawk made out of fondant and it turned out pretty good ! Next time i would definitely use gel coloring ( I didn’t have the proper colors in my stock) and my tip set to do the frosting. I really liked how the icing looked on the top, and the cake itself was pretty good but needed to come closer to room temperature to be more moist. Here is the cake recipe I used and the buttercream. We also had white chocolate covered strawberries made to look like basketballs by one of his wife’s friends !
Happy Birthday John !
