Before Gina came to me for her husband’s 30th birthday cake, I had no idea what a kettlebell was, let alone Crossfit! She and her husband are part of a Crossfit exercising program. Gina was kind enough to send me some pictures of Crossfit items to give me an idea of what she had in mind. She wanted a 3-D kettlebell cake along with maybe a few decorations. As Crossfit seems to use a lot of kettlebells, barbells, and still rings, I decided to make a 3-D kettelbell cake along with some Crossfit equipments as decorations.
All equipment pieces are made with sugar paste.
Usually a picture is worth a thousand words. In this case, only a video will be able to show that the still rings are actually movable and can swing freely.
For the cake, Gina’s husband likes rich chocolate cakes. So I made a sinfully rich double chocolate cake with chocolate ganache.
A note was sent to me from Gina the following day after the celebration that her husband loved the cake and so did everyone at the party. I was very happy to have been part of making Gina’s husband’s birthday special. Thanks to Gina, I learned something new about an exercising program.
