Cake by Coreena G., Hinton, AB

I made a scratch cake from one of my many Christmas cake recipes and baked it using the Wilton sports ball pan as well as an 8" square pan. I iced the square pan in red buttercream and decorated it to look like brick. I then decorated the sports ball cake to look like Santa’s middle. I added fondant legs coming out of the top. I then added buttercream accents to look like snow. Such a fun cake and my daughters’ classmates enjoyed it!

I made this from a Wilton pan and one of my mother’s Christmas cake recipes she had used back in the 80’s. The biggest challenge was that I had to recreate the face because when I dumped the cake out the face remained. I do not recommend using Wilton’s Cake Release. It never worked for me. Generic Pam is what I use now and it works better and is cheaper.

I had the original paper work that’s enclosed in the pan so I was better able to complete this cake. I used mostly the star tip and a regular round tip to outline and decorate the areas. I do not remember the tip # I used for his hair. I think I did a pretty good job except his skin isn’t the right color.

I used cupcakes for this. I found a picture of a cupcake online and I decided to do a bunch of them like that. I iced the cupcakes smooth with buttercream first then I used a #21 tip. The eyes and cheeks are candy.

This cake was baked in a Wilton-shaped pan and I pretty closely followed the pan shape. I used red icing from a squeeze package for Santa’s hat. I used a star tip for the beard and made swirls. The Christmas cake recipe was fun to make.
