This Superbowl cake was a lot of fun to make. I decided to customize the standard yellow cake mix by adding lemon zest and juice and made a lemon curd for the filling. I used a frosting recipe I had from my cake decorating class, which is a really good versatile recipe.
The entire cake was done using 3 different sized star tips, although extremely painstaking, the effort was worth the oohs and ahs I got when I brought it to the party. I used the Wilton "football set" goalposts and players and I used sharpies to "paint" on custom jerseys on the players. I should have added more stars to the bases of the players to make them look free standing, but I ran out of time.
It took me approximately 3 hours to decorate the cake, start to finish.
This cake was for a Super Bowl Party the Saints & Colts. 1/2 sheet cake white cake butter cream icing. I made the helmets by tracing a helmet cookie cutter and used copier to enlarge image. Traced with piping gel then transferred to cake by placing gel side down and then brushing lightly with fingertips to ice the cake.
Gently remove and image should be transferred to cake. Outlined with icing then piped in with star tips. Cake was a great success. GO SAINTS. OH almost forgot used chocolate & white candies melts and football candy mold to make the football.
The words "super" and "bowl" were also cookie cutters from the Wilton's 101 cookie cutter collection. You can find numbers letters and all types of shapes, sports, animals, flowers etc.
This UT VOLS Stadium Cake is a groom's cake. The field is a sheet cake. Chocolate on chocolate, Almond flavor butter cream icing.
The stands are a 3/4 sheet chocolate cake cut into 4 sections and carved angled down to for the sprinkles of people. I printed the flags and laminated them on toothpicks. Had my husband to build me the stands to set the sections on. I painted white to use for other teams.
Have made Superbowl, Dallas Cowboys and MANY MANY MANY TENNESSEE ones. Can make fondant goal post or out of lollipop sticks if you wish. Thanks for looking.
It was a small party so the cake isn't very big, although it could easily be made bigger. I just baked a 9" square cake.
Once cooled, I shaped it, using a knife, into the shape of Texas. I had to use some of the cut off pieces to get the shape just right. I covered the cake in white icing. Then tinted some of the icing orange. I then used piping to make the bull on top, and pipe the edges.
It was super easy and for the little boy who loved the Texas Longhorns said it couldn't have been better.
I made this Superbowl Field Cake for a work party just before the Superbowl. It was a full chocolate sheet cake. I frosted it in green buttercream. The logos were printed in a mirror image and then copied with piping gel. I laid these onto the cake and then traced over the piping gel lines in black.
I filled in the logos with thinned out buttercream. I added some yard lines to make it look more like a football field. This cake prompted a co-worker to ask me to make her a cake for her Superbowl party, which I will submit as well.
This Superbowl Cake was requested by a co-worker after I made a football field Superbowl cake for a work party. It is just a 2-layer 8" chocolate cake filled with raspberry preserves. I iced the cake in green buttercream. Then I traced the logo with piping gel and laid that onto the cake.
I filled in the logo with thinned out buttercream. The top border was a simple shell border, and the bottom border used the same tip, but I did an up and down motion instead of the shell. I used chocolate buttercream to make footballs and iced on white buttercream laces.
