Carolina Blue Birthday

Friday was Papa’s birthday.  Saturday we gathered together over at Papa & Gigi’s house to celebrate.  I baked Papa a Carolina Blue cake to celebrate the occasion. I used this cake as inspiration.
First I mixed up white cake mix then separated it out into two bowls. Then I colored one with Wilton icing color Sky Blue to make Carolina blue.

It settles into concentric circles. I added white batter then blue.  It settles into concentric circles. It looked so cool when they came out of the oven! This is how they looked when they came out of the oven.I looked up UNC’s logo online and drew it onto the cake. Then I filled in the lines with blue butter cream (all icing made from scratch thank you very much) and outlined it with white. Finished product. Then I painted blue glitter gel onto the blue icing to give it sparkle. Papa LOVED his cake! Papa loved his cake! He even went and put on his Carolina Blue shirt. Papa was really surprised when he cut into the cake. He was really surprised when he cut into it. The inside was all fun & stripy! The inside.  All fun & stripy! Click on all pics to enlarge.

  1. OK. That seriously is the COOLEST cake I have ever seen. Awesome job Shannie!! You are so clever! (and I’m totally stealing that the next time I make a cake!)

  2. That is such an awesome cake! You did a phenomenal job on it!!! I’ll have to try the striping thing sometime. Love the glitter … that really makes the design stand out! Maybe I should make an IU cake for Jeff for Fathers’ Day or his birthday. 🙂
