My Mama is a public school teacher (yay for teachers!!) and she asked me to make a cake for her co-workers/friends for the last day of school- to show them that they are appreciated!
She gave me a tshirt with the school mascot and colors and asked me to write “God Bless You Teachers” on the cake. So I did just that!
Other than the letters, which were time-consuming (but totally my choice and fault because I can not write in buttercream, so I have to cut them – I used funky alphabet cutters this time!!!), the actual Trojan “guy” was my biggest challenge.
I decided to go a (maybe) less traditional route and just paint him. I shaped some of the yellow/gold fondant in an arch around some white fondant, cut it to the shape of the picture on the t-shirt, then I used a paintbrush and black gel food coloring and just painted him!
