Tennis Court

Aunt Denise celebrated her birthday and I got to make the cake! She likes tennis. A lot. So I usually go with some sort of tennis theme.


The cake is her favorite chocolate cake baked into a 9x13 pan, frosted with her favorite chocolate recipe. And then I go crazy decorating the top. With more buttercream as the lines and grass. I used melted almond bark and semi-sweet chocolate to make the tennis net. I might have gotten a little too caught up in getting the lines on the court proportional...it took me nearly an hour to finish those! But Aunt Denise loved it and that's what's important.
