I made this cake for a little girl celebrating her 8th birthday at a bowling alley. It's chocolate cake with chocolate chips (my favorite!), decorated with vanilla buttercream and fondant. I tried to make the figure look like the birthday girl, and I put an 8 on her shirt since that's how old she's turning. :) My oldest daughter made the little black bowling ball for this cake - she was very proud of it! I was pretty impressed with her work myself...the ball was nice and round and she even poked three finger holes in it with a toothpick! Perhaps she's a future cake decorator like her mama??
