Jordan Retro 5 Shoe Full Sheet Cake

Hello, all! I have been super busy lately because I got a second job! Yes, on top of working at a bakery full time, I also work as a cashier at an all-natural grocery store as well. Time to start saving for the Big Day next year. I just hope I have the time to make cake orders at home when the time comes.

This cake was the first full sheet cake that I've ever made at home! I've done plenty at work, but actually having a full sheet cake in my tiny kitchen makes me realize exactly how tiny it is!

It's a half-chocolate, half-yellow cake iced in vanilla buttercream. I really wanted to take the easy way out and use a big edible image, but I realized that I should do my best no matter how tired I was. So I set to work scoring the design into the cake. This was my reference.

I attempted to score the design into the cake a few times until I just gave up and had my brother help me. We drew a lot when we were younger, and he was always the one that drew the shoes better than I could! I modified the colors a bit to incorporate more pink. The shoe was a lot bigger than I thought, so I ended up spending quite a bit of time on it.

I'm happy with how it turned out!
Well, not how this picture turned out.
Ah, that's better! The partygoers loved it too!

Note to self: when house hunting in the future, look at the size of the kitchen first!

Hopefully my posts won't become scant due to my work schedule. I hope to find some time to still bake and sharpen my scratch-baking skills. I'm going to Florida in about a week and a half, so I am super excited to have some time to relax and spend time with family. :)
