You may have heard (if you’re from the States, anyway.)
It’s all the talk in my hometown city.
And for good reason, if I may say.
You see, ’round here, even if you’re not the most avid of football fans ever, the very idea of our hometown team, the Buffalo Bills, being up for sale and POSSIBLY leaving the area is, quite frankly, UNACCEPTABLE.
And THAT, coming from a very non-committed fan. (*AHEM* Some may even challenge that li’l word, “fan”, when referring to my interest level involving football, in general. Shhhh….)
But committed or not, I DO have several men in my life that I love dearly. And these men (husband, father, brother, brother-in-laws) ARE committed fans. THEY.LOVE.THE.BILLS.
And when I say the word “committed”, I mean, like, “raising-the-roof-on-a-Sunday-afternoon-with-earsplitting-raucousness“ committed. (Well, some of them anyway… the others may be a bit more silent about it, but intensely committed, none the less.)
In fact, this Bill’s gloves cake, right here, was made for one of my brother-in-laws for his birthday a few weeks back. The gloves were specifically requested, and based on a version of the real gloves the team has come out with. And I have to admit, the real gloves ARE kindo’ cool, the way they form the team logo when crossing the palms together like this.
And what better time to create a cake to help celebrate our hometown team, than now, when it’s existence remaining here in our city is in question?
Like I said, football is really neither here nor there to me.
BUT I love my men.
And my men LOVE football.
And their home team is the Buffalo Bills.
And I am simply not interested in taking that away from them.
So to all of you ridiculously rich men who are currently in the bidding for purchasing our hometown team, I have a simple little message for you…
If you plan on upsetting our men by relocating our team to some bigger, swankier city, you will scorn the women of this town, as well.
And you know what they say about a woman scorned, don’t you?
Well, lets just say…
it ain’t good.
(Was that scary enough? Do I need to get the big dogs out, or are we good?)
Gloves made of solid modeling chocolate.
Shelf liner pinned down over gloves and then airbrushed.
Bills logo was hand cut using an exacto knife.
And using my size 0 color shapers, here, to fix up those lines and small crevices!

Cake was covered in fondant and airbrushed.
You NEED an airbrush in your life!! Click HERE for a link to the airbrush (& set) I own.
My bro-in-law and one of my beauty nieces (and my oldest baby over to the left) both celebrating birthdays, but we deemed my niece too little to care about the design of the cake and, therefore, went with the Bills theme for her Daddy.
(I know… we baaaad. )
