Football is an incredible game... So make Football Cake for MAN-U Fan, Karan

Hey!!!! Karan.... Happy birthday....... 2 parties.... what fun.... :-)

“Football is an incredible game. Sometimes it's so incredible, it's unbelievable.” Tom Landry.
Karan is crazy about football and as you would have guessed by now, his favorite team is Manchester United..... His cake had to have a Football on it.....

The cake is the same one these guys had earlier at Tarini's[Karan's sister] birthday... posted here . Karan's friends wiped out the cake really quick....

This cake was humongous effort cause..... I spent the entire night making this cake, started working on the cake at 10pm and finished at 2:35am.... and went to work after sleeping for 5 hours only....

This cake had me weeping over a failed cake for the first time..... Had made a cake the night before and thought will be organised n prepared..... Things don't always go as planned.... after i put the cake in to bake.... the oven stopped heating midway...... 2 such ovens went Kaput the same nite..... I was in tears to see my cake fail for the first time in so long....... Thank god I had a day's extra time at hand.....
Had to inform Vibha at midnight, that I would be able to make only 1 cake instead of 2...... Made me feel really bad..... Just had to make the cake cause Karan was very excited about a football cake......couldn't disappoint him.....

Finally all turned out well..... the cake was a smashing hit..... :-)
SMS from Karan's mom, "Hey Nachi! V late response, but have just wound up the party. The cake as always was amazing! took a few pictures, but not enough cause it got polished off in a jiffy! You surpassed yourself as usual... :-) Thanks a zillion. Can't get over your humongous effort! "
