My nephew wanted a soccer ball cake for his birthday and I was happy to do it. It left my house all nice as you can see. About ten minutes into our 3 hour car ride one of my kids says,"Mom, your cake is falling on one side" so with some quick thinking we attached a shirt on the window to offer some shade, every so often I would look back in hopes that I had imagined thewhoe thing. No such luck. We finally made it to our destination and my kids laughed that it looked more like a hat than a soccer ball. No worries, it was still edible!
