Carlton AFL Football Club Cake

Carlton AFL Football Club Cake

An adult 50th Birthday cake for an ex-Carlton AFL Referee. This Football cake is a three tier chocolate mud cake with chocolate icing. The top tier is covered with green-tinted coconut representing 'grass' and decorated with a set of AFL goal posts, football boots and ball, the Carlton logo and the birthday greeting banner.

An Action-Man® figure dressed in hand-made Carlton AFL referee club colours sits calmly on the edge of the field. Metallic blue candles (not the correct number!) complete the decoration.

The PC generated banner has the birthday greeting written in the ‘Bookman Old Style.ttf’ font. The Carlton AFL Logo was regenerated and cleaned up from a very small graphic.

The cake served 60 adults and was greeted with heartwarming admiration. After making so many cakes for young children it was very nice to have someone else whip out a camera to start taking photos of my handiwork.

I doubled a vanilla cake recipe for this size pan for the football cake. The icing was the Wilton buttercream recipe, which was also doubled and used gel coloring to color the icing.

I drew a football on the center and used tip 21 to make the stars, the green shell border along the top and bottom was tip 31, and the laces on the football and the white border under the green shell border were tip 46. I used curly ribbon and football helmet party favors for the decorations.

The writing was done in Wilton sparkle gel and on the green shell border I sprinkled rainbow mix dessert sprinkles. It took about 30 minutes to decorate the entire cake.

I used a football cake pan to bake this shape. This cake was for my son Rishi's 6th birthday last July. It was his idea to have a football theme on his birthday.

I searched black colour a lot but didn't get success, so I settled with blue-green colour icing. But it came out quite well with other football cake decorations that include football candle holders and the goal point etc.

The icing was done with well whipped vanilla cream to which I added the needed colours. Did the basic icing first with white cream and then used icing cone to make the hexagons on the basic icing.

Rishi was so happy to see the cake.

Homemade Football Field Cake

Homemade Football Field Cake

A friend asked me to make a football cake for her Super Bowl party. I baked a sheet cake, iced it green on top, white on sides. Used a ruler for lines across then piped them in with white icing.

I used a Wilton mini football pan for the football, iced it. I downloaded the Superbowl emblem from the NFL site, traced it on wax paper and tooth picked it on. Piped the outlines and stared it in.

I used the Wilton football pan to make this football cake then covered it completely using a star tip. (one hint-the smaller the stars the better the look) then I attached a Superbowl magnet my husband bought & two helmets and that was it!!

I made a chocolate sheet cake and filled it with chocolate buttercream frosting for this football cake.

I used the Wilton football cake pan and put it on top of the cake and decorated it with buttercream frosting and did the emblem in fondant.
