I had a little fun trying to decorate a cake for the beginning of football season, but things didn't go quite as smoothly as envisioned... I cut the shape out of cardboard and laid it on the icing so I could fill it with jimmies, when I lifted the cardboard, I lifted off some of the icing too-oops. Seems like a cookie cutter would work best for this method, you can fill the center with sprinkles and then simply lift it off cleanly.
I used chocolate jimmies and a pack of white candy decorator balls from Walmart (also sold in the craft stores).
My boys are grown and on their own and while the day job puts food on the table, it doesn't feed the soul. So this Philly Girl started Pig In Mud. Please join me as I welcome each season and holiday through brief posts focusing on home cooking, baking and crafts. I hope you'll find this a happy place that provides inspiration:@) Lynn
