Water Fight Cake
This is the 2nd of 2 cakes for my friend Emily. Her boys are less than a year apart (yikes!) so each year she gets to plan two parties back to back. This year she decided to have me help out with the cakes. Ethan is an adorable 8 yr old boy who requested a "water fight cake with a hand sticking out shooting a real water gun." It sounded like a fun challenge so I set about figuring out how to best execute it. I've found that the most challenging aspect of doing a cake for little boys is that they really want it simple (basic flavors, no bling and NO fondant). After a couple days of thinking it through-this is what I came up with. I hope you love it Ethan!
