If only I could accompany this entry with a drum roll! This cake was created to honor the hard work and dedication that Steven, a recently turned 16 year old, has put into playing his snare drum. He is a member of his high school drum line and, as I understand, drives his younger brother crazy practicing on his drum set. When I was approached to make a cake for Steven I was handed a picture of an antique snare drum and told to incorporate red and black, his high school colors. It was decided that the main body of the drum should be black with the red banding along the top and bottom. I wanted the rope and fasteners on the side to appear to be made of wire or metal with brass fixtures holding everything in place. I had a wonderful time creating this modern take on an old classic! Oh, and the best part.....EVERYTHING inside this cake creation is CHOCOLATE!, Steven's favorite!! Happy 16th Birthday Steven!
