I baked a chocolate cake in an 8 x 12 inch tin for this Chelsea football cake. I covered it in white fondant icing. I made the rosette using blue icing. Cut out 2 sizes of garrett frill, frill the edges and place the smaller on top of the biggest one. Cut out a circle of white icing for the centre.
The ribbons are made with white and blue paste, cut to shape and attached to the rosette. For the scarves I cut out 2 strips of blue icing and molded to shape.I piped the name of the team on the scarves
I attached blue ribbon to the side of the cake with white football ribbon on top. I bought Chelsea badges and a football boot money box for extra decoration.
I made this cake for my friend who's a MAJOR Packers fan. It was pretty simple to make and the frosting of the cake only took around 15 minutes or less. First I baked a 9x13" vanilla sheet cake. When it was all cool I frosted the whole thing with green frosting.
I used fondant for the G, because it tends to be much easier to work with than frosting when it comes to making big shapes and it comes out a lot smoother. Then I used the writing tip to circle the G with and for the lettering. I used yellow and green because those are Packers colors.
Like I said, it was super easy, a ton of fun to make, and my friend LOVED it!
I made this Homemade Jet Helmet Birthday Cake Design for my brother, he is a huge Jet fan. The bottom half of this cake is rice krispie treats, for support. I used 3 8" round cakes for the top half and started sculpting. The filling for this cake was strawberries and whipped cream. I guess that makes it a strawberry shortcake.
The face mask I made out of gum paste that I ran through a clay extruder, and formed the mask on a small bucket using pins to hold it together until it dried. Just note if you paint gum paste it will soften up. So next time I would color the gum paste prior to setting it.
My brother is a big Cleveland Browns fan, so for his birthday I decided to make him a Cleveland Browns Birthday Cake with the Browns colors.
I used two 9 inch round cakes that were strawberry flavored (box cakes)and I made the Wilton recipe of Buttercream frosting. I drew the helmet free hand and piped the outline in brown and the inside was filled with orange stars.
I did a shell border of brown around the top layer. I also did the number 34 because that was how old he was turning in brown outline filled in with orange.
This 60th Birthday Football Cake was for a surprise family birthday party for my brother-in-law. He is on the football coaching staff at the high school where he works so his daughters wanted to incorporate the football theme. The cake was a Reeses chocolate peanut butter cake, the football is rice crispy treats covered in fondant. A good chocolate cake with creamy peanut butter and peanut butter chips in the cake and peanut butter in the chocolate buttercream frosting filling the cake.
It was a total surprise as his birthday was not until the next weekend and his girls all came in from out of town to celebrate.
