Did you ever close your eyes, shake a Magic 8 Ball, and hope for the right answer when asking life’s important questions, like, “does Billy really like me” or “will I get into Mrs. Smith’s homeroom?”
I sure did. Playing with Magic 8 Balls was a part of my childhood that may not have actually been magical, but it allowed me to believe that it was, so when General Mills asked me to create replicas of the iconic toy out of cakes, I was pretty excited.
My finished cakes are almost identical in size to the toys and have a real candy glass window that allows you to see the purple haze covered words, “yes” or “no.”
