Hopscotch Cake

Violet made cake number three on her way to her Piece of Cake badge. It was a hopscotch cake. She made the cake from scratch yesterday. Today she cut the cake into rectangles, arranged it, made buttercream frosting and decorated it. Well, I helped some. Boy, oh boy, that was my first cake from scratch and I definitely see why they invented cake mixes!

As you can see we found a tray to make the cake on, instead of the Mickey Mouse tray, and it didn't fit! It was actually the second tray we tried and it was still too small. We said that it was representing part of the sidewalk that had settled.




It is hard to tell but the rectangles each have a number on them. She used a cookie cutter for the number templates. She used candies to decorate it. Not sure if I want to eat quite that much candy, but hey, you do what you got to do.

"...it was representing part of the sidewalk that had settled." What a hoot -- I love it!

Cute cake. I've never heard of the Piece of Cake badge -- is it a Council's Own Badge from someplace? It's something my Brownie-bridging-to-Juniors would love to do.

That just looks so great. I love cake in any form or fashion (except chocolate - yuck!).

Good for Violet, it's so cute.
