I love making these cakes! Each one is so unique. This one was a Devil's Food chocolate top tier and a pound cake bottom tier all covered in Carolina Blue buttercream. On top is the UNC mascot with a basketball, football and baseball. (Go Heels!) On the sides you'll find Jeff Gordon's race car, the birthday boy's cat and dog, a photo of him with his granddaughters, the logo of North State Bank, a Harley Davidson logo, a pennant representing his high school, the UNC logo, an Elvis record and sand and shells to represent beach music, his two favorites.
After the party I got this wonderful note from his daughter:
THE CAKE WAS ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!! I LOVED IT! It was the hit of the party! Everyone continued to compliment it and my dad really liked it. It was also very yummy! Thank you so much! I really enjoyed working with you and will certainly be in touch with you for our next event.
