In Honor of the Winter Games!

I love to watch the winter Olympics! I love the music of the opening ceremonies. I love the patriotism. I love hearing the stories behind the they persevere and overcome they work so hard towards their goal! (Hopefully, I will use it as inspiration to start running again!) I have to admit that the tear-jerker this year has been the commercials for the P&G products; the ones where they say "a proud sponsors of moms". Oh my word! Gets me everytime!

Anyway, in honor of the winter games here is an ice skate cake that I made for birthday. The birthday girl is a skater at the local rink. I have made this cake with several different colors. The blade is fondant painted silver.
