To thank the dancers for all their hard work practicing and raising money, United Way tries to make the green room (room where the dancers are until it is their turn to take the stage) a pampered event. There is food and drink, and of course cake. For the last several years I have been honored to make the cake for these events. They never ask for anything too exciting, just a United Way edible image cake each night. Needless to say, the cakes for each night are not identical because that just wouldn't seem right to me.
Each cake is our popular butter cake. Making sure the edible image is the most important thing we did a simple white background on a sheet cake and then highlighted the dress rehearsal cake in gold and bordered the cake for the night of the big even in blue with a little writing. No doubt it will be a great night. To find out all the step by step information you can check out United Way of Robeson County's Facebook age or follow them on Twitter.
