Today is my birthday!
And this is my birthday cake.
It should really say 'Grand Ole Lisa' cos, 23, yikes! Haha.
Something Nashville/country related was definitely a top option for this years birthday cake because I still love country music, this year I watched the first season of Nashville pointing out all the places I'd been, and I still start sentences with, 'When I was in Nashville...' even though it was September that I went there.
The main cake is a Victoria sponge covered in fondant icing with the Grand Ole Opry logo on it.
Cutting out letters is not easy. I printed out the logo, cut out all the letters and lay them on top of the icing then cut around them with a knife. I stuck them on the main cake with jam.
The cupcakes around the main cake represent the circle of stage that was taken from the original home of the Grand Ole Opry and put into the stage of the new place so everybody would be standing on the same floor.
I made the candles into the iconic mic stands using paper with the words printed on.
