awesome Converse cake a little over a year ago. They are such an awesome couple! When they called me about making a "baby reveal" cake, it broke my heart to say "we only make wedding cakes". Matt was super sweet and willing to bend over backwards to get any cake from me so I had to do something. He agreed to a 9" cake with NO decoration, but this is the cake he got. It's not awesome, but I had a little extra time and felt like doing a little something for such special people.
I REALLY like Jonathan Adler's designs and pottery. I have a wish list a mile long on that website (hint, hint..) so when I found this stencil (and a few others) on DesignerStencils.com. it had to be mine! Something about me wants it to go the other direction, but I'll get over it. Do you see it or does it look right to you? I used a hounds tooth impression mat for the bands and border. I love to mix patterns, but it does often look messy to me. I added piped the borders because I had extra yellow icing. At least I'm honest :) It probably would have looked better without the piping. The cake was lime cake with lime French buttercream filling and rum French buttercream outside. It's kind of a mojito cake! By the way, it was blue on the inside!
