Cool Paint Roller Cake

Amazing Paint Roller Birthday Cake

I wanted to make a birthday cake that didn’t look like a cake, and since we all love to paint, I thought of making it look like paint. The paint roller is just a jelly roll filled with cherry pie filling.  I stuck a real paint roller handle into it! The icing is store-bought green icing that comes in a tube. After smearing it all over the cake, I “spiked” the icing to make it look more like a used paint roller.  I also smeared some icing on the paint roller handle to get a more real effect.
