Bowling Alley Cake!
The Bowling Cake!
This bowling alley cake is something that I made for my nephew. He was turning 13 at the time and he was really into bowling. He loved everything having to do with bowling. People wonder where it came from, but I think it has something to do with Wii Bowling being part of the house.
I wish that I could have done a better job. I didn’t use a special pan to make this, but maybe I should have, lol. It’s a little sloppy, but I think it turned out nice. He really enjoyed it. I took a regular 9×11 cake and then cut it in half and then layed the two on top of each other. I trimmed the edges to make it look more like a bowling alley.
At first I was going to use frosting, but then I decided to use fondant because that’s the only thing that would give me the flat look. I took some food coloring and painted the fondant to look like the wooden alley. I then took some more fondant and made it for the sides/gutters. The pins and bowling ball is are all made of out gum paste. They look really hard to do, but they’re not. You can either make them by hand or use a little mold that you can buy at cake stores or online.
