It's my boyfriends 21st birthday tomorrow and I really wanted to do something special for him. He's OBSESSED with the University of South Carolina Gamecocks. He has USC shirts, hats, belts, shoes (crocs, actually), even a golf bag. If it has the USC logo on it, he owns it. So I really wanted to involve USC in with his cake. I searched online a bit and found the cute little cartoon Cocky and knew that I had to make a buttercream transfer. I was most proud of this. Especially that I changed his hands around so he was holding up a 2 & a 1 :D
It was a fairly easy process, aside from covering the 2 in fondant. I had a really hard time getting the fondant in that area up near the top--but I think was able to make it look semi-decent.
The 2 is vanilla cake (Magnolia)
The 1 and the sign are chocolate cake (pioneer woman)
both were filled with vanilla bean swiss meringue buttercream (HTEAC)
