Rated 5 out of 5 by 42cakes from I made this cake for a co-worker who was leaving for a new job. He is an avid bowler so on the side of the cake I wrote "Hope your new job is right up your alley!" He liked it. I think it was a very easy cake. I filled the layers of devils food with chocolate ganache and made the bowler out of fondant. Everyone liked it so much they didn't want to cut into it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by hshepard from This cake was so fun to make. It was for my son's 5th birthday and he just loved it. I made it a 1/2 sheet cake size I put the lane in the middle of the cake and put the happy birthday around it. Instead of making the lane all one color I took my gel coloring with a pastry brush lightly wet and stroked it through the icing, it made it look it wood grain. I also made the pins, person, and bowling balls out of fondant. I also put kit-kat bars down the side of the lane to look like gutters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Franx from This was a fun cake to make. I used an 11X15 sheet cake(two layers), made the alley out of light brown fondant, bowling pins and ball out of Fondant/Gumpaste, added a ball return made from Fondant/Gumpaste. On the sides of the cake I added a ball and pins made from royal icing. This was for a 9 year old who took it to school for his class. the boys mother called after the party and told me how much they loved the cake. I have photos I can send if you prefer.
