I made this longhorn cake for the UT v. Ohio State Fiesta Bowl. Pretty simple really, I made 2-8×8 inch square chocolate cakes, iced with buttercreme frosting and decorated with a little buttercreme tinted burnt orange.

I free handed the Longhorn, which turned out pretty good considering that I am NOT much of an artist. I had extra so I tried to pretty it up a bit using the star tip on the edges. I could have smoothed out the white a bit more, but I think it turned out all right– it was a hit and really easy!

Most people wouldn’t believe this but I’m pretty sure my having this cake at our watch party helped UT win!
