Definitely my favorite cake I've done so far. Bill forged Lebron's signature (his was waaaay better than mine). But I had the privilege of making an itsy bitsy stencil of the NBA logo and drawing it on with less than fine-tipped food coloring markers.
And here is the most thoughtful gift I've ever received:
My wonderful husband had the idea to get me an official chef's shirt to wear when I bake my cakes. He then found patches online, one that was the Food Network logo and one that says "competitor." He had my mom sew them on and embroider my name on the front (in red, so that the shirt was red, black and white). Then, on top of that, he secretly put together my "portfolio" for me that I've always said I need to do. He printed off 8 x 10's of every cake I've made and put it in one of those clear essay folders with my Wilton certificates in the front. It was amazing. Seriously the best present ever. I definitely married a winner. And now I feel so official.
