This is my new hobby – looking for tennis cakes on the Internet. I came across this one and here's my first thought – the net is totally wrong. The net strings should run parallel and perpendicular to the court, not diagonally. Is that what you thought or am I a tennis cake snob? Having said that, I am impressed with the attempt to even make a tennis net out of something edible. And I LOVE the pink cupcakes – nothing to do with tennis but they look yummy. The more food-coloring saturated icing they pile on, the better.
I found this on a website called The Twisted Sifter. Here's their description:
The tennis court birthday cake was created for a party in Louisville, KY. The lower tier was a spice cake with a fresh apple filling and a dolce de leche icing under the fondant. The top tier was a white cake with fresh lemon filling and a vanilla butter cream under the marshmallow fondant. The cupcakes were strawberry with a fresh strawberry filling and a cream cheese icing. The net was created out of royal icing and allowed to dry for several days. The pink tennis balls were made from fondant and then decorated with royal icing.
There's a lot going on with this cake – maybe too much. But look at those pink cupcakes!
