This Homemade Spaghetti and Meatballs Birthday Cake is one of the easiest cakes that I have ever made and have actually done it twice now.
I cooked the cake in a large oven safe bowel, once it was chilled then I trimmed off the dome, placed it upside down and dirty iced it. With the left over chocolate cake, I mixed it with icing and rolled them into balls. I then placed them in the freezer to harden and later wrote the lettering on them.
I placed the cake on a lazy Susan and used a #3 or 4 tip and an icing bag to pipe the spaghetti. Rotating the cake around and sometimes lifting it up on an angle tends to give the best result. I continue piping until I can no longer tell that there is cake underneath. The cake is then placed back in the fridge/freezer.
The spaghetti sauce is made from frozen strawberries thickened into a sauce, coooled and then put on top of the hardened spaghetti. The meatballs are placed on the top and front and then coconut is sprinkled on the top to use as Parmesan cheese.
