Field and Stream: Sporting Cake

 Some kids REALLY love Sports! 
Thank you so much to Fred Marcus Photography for giving us access their photos!
The four feet (plus) tall basketball,  football, fishing, baseball, scrabble cake traveled from Manhattan to South Hampton in two pieces.  That is, if you don't count the "gold football trophy" that I have to admit, was sculpted out of modeling chocolate in the car on the way to the event.

 Thanks to ♡ Alejandra of the Cake Factory for the photos below:
