I'm Back!!!

Hello, all! Lots going on in my life since my last post, but that's not what I'm here to talk about.
So, on Sunday, the Green Bay Packers played in the NFC Championship Game. Sadly, they got seriously outplayed and won't be going to the Super Bowl. But leading up to the game, there was a lot of hype in Wisconsin, so I decided to join the fray and make something to help celebrate. What you see here is the result of many hours, and several days of baking.

The cake is a basic yellow cake, filled with ganache, covered in chocolate buttercream, and covered with rolled fondant. The "G" and footballs are also made from fondant, while the piped border and white laces on the balls are royal icing.

I was also commissioned to make rolls/buns for the same party. Since the sandwiches were going to be beef tenderloin, I decided a nice buttery brioche would be the best choice. Never haveing made "rolls" before, I took a stab at it and the results were fantastic. As you can see, I made half with sesame seeds on top, and the others were plain. Both were awesome, and my wife, mother, and I have been eating the leftovers all week.

The leftover cake, on the other hand, was sent with my mother-in-law to work. Hopefully she can drum up some business!
