Usually I leave the cake decorating and other food art to my mom and sisters, they’re really good at it and after a disaster of a cake when I was about 13 I decided why bother when they’re around to do it instead. Then thanks to a last second bid, okay last 20 seconds, I like to make sure no one has time to up their bid against me on eBay and it works well, instead of the $15 to $20 the Biker Mice cake pans had been selling for I got mine for about $10. Originally I was going to just ask my sisters to make it for me for my next birthday, but once I got it I just couldn’t wait that long and actually wanted to try out cake decorating for myself again.
After about 6 or 7 hours this was the result, even with icing I couldn‘t draw decent hands if my life depended on it, but otherwise I think he came out pretty well for my first cake in 15 years. Yes, he’s shirtless because I couldn’t resist, he just looks so much more cuddly without his armor on.
My sisters helped with advice, some of the outlining and towards the end with the background when I was getting burned out and my hands were too sore to keep going. They also had me laughing so hard I was on my knees at one point, my sister who usually just rolls her eyes and tells me how immature I am for liking cartoons was actually quite nice about the cake and was giving me advice, then she told me if I messed up I could always just lick the icing off of him, at that point I started laughing and ended up on my knees, although it may have been more to try to hide the fact that I was blushing like crazy, considering my first thought when she said that was, ‘I hope they don’t shed like cats do, then I’d end up with a mouth full of fur’
Then when I told her I wasn’t sure where to start, her response was to start between his legs. Some times I forget that my innocent little sisters are 21 until they start saying stuff like that.
