My husband turned 43 and I was thinking of something nice to make him for his birthday. Originally I was going to make him an Indiana Jones hat and wip, but after thinking about it, it really didn't excite me. I love vivid colors and working with dull colors for his birthday wasn't something I wanted to do. I asked him what did he want for his birthday cake that wasn't just a round or square cake, and he said something UM (he is a huge Hurricanes fan). At first I thought I would make a helmet, but when I realized how much time I had, it wouldn't allow me to make the mask part and have it dry to assemble. So I decided to make him a cap. I was very pleased with how well it came out! When he saw it he said to me: "Leelee, eres una bestia" which means: "Leelee, you are a beast", trust me in Spanish that is a very good thing, at least here in Miami, lol!
The flavor was Leelee's Specialty Rum cake layered with hazelnut cream! He loved it and I was happy! Seeing the expression on his face was priceless!
