game on

by mmiyachi

The start of the Summer Olympics mark a special time in our lives, when we cheer for those sports that otherwise we would never, ever watch. Seriously, when is the last time you watched skeet shooting? Four years ago?

To celebrate the games, my friend made this lovely cake (I had the pleasure of helping to assemble…aka I ended up eating half the bowl of cream cheese frosting). The recipe is intended for the Fourth of July, but fits nicely with the occasion at hand – nothing’s a crowd pleaser like a flashy layer cake.

Cutting the first slice was a nail biter…

And that’s what I call a victory.
