Cake Boss takes up a ridiculous amount of my time. I imagine myself as a great pastry chef who makes life sized tree cakes and intricately crafted edible flowers.
Though I’m no boss, I make a mean cake. I’m a firm believer in cooking from scratch. The general rule is if it comes in a box, it’s not allowed in my kitchen. There are always exceptions, though, and today’s DIY is one of them.
Imagine the scene: You’re happily preparing for the next world cup match, popping yourself some popcorn and breaking out the Dr. Pepper. Suddenly, you receive a phone call from your roommate announcing that everyone will be coming over to your place after the game for a post-game celebration. Even worse, you forgot it was your roommate’s birthday and he asks you for a cake last minute. What can you possibly do?
OK, I’ll admit this scenario isn’t particularly likely to happen to anyone, so what if you just want to make an impressive but super simple cake for your friends on game day? In the spirit of the World Cup, here’s a quick and easy DIY soccer ball cake that will impress pretty much anyone, no matter culinary challenged you are.
