This Homemade St Kilda Football Birthday Cake was made for a work colleague’s husband's 60th Birthday. He is a very passionate St Kilda Football Club fan so this was the inspiration. The cake itself is a rich chocolate cake which was baked in a large rectangular tin and then cut into an oval shape (tip: photocopy the cake board that the cake will be put on to achieve a perfect oval shape and use this as a template).

The cake was then layered and ganached to achieve the smooth surface to take the fondant. The ganached cake was then covered with fondant and smoothed over. The St Kilda Clubs emblem was cut out in white fondant and the sections that needed the black and red colour was coloured with edible food paint and let too dry before being placed onto the cake. I also cut out small football shapes from yellow and red fondant and piped white lines on them to represent the lacing on the football. These were also then stuck to the cake.

For the goal posts I used wooden skewers and cut them to the size need (two large and two smaller) and wrapped them in white fondant. Overall, I was very happy with the result and have kept the templates for the St Kilda emblem for other cakes.

Coolest Super Bowl Cake 56

Homemade Super Bowl Cake

My boyfriend and I were having a football party and wanted to make a Super Bowl cake. I bought a football shaped pan to make for the cake. I thought the football wasn't enough so I made two little cakes( I think they're 4inch cakes). I printed out the mascots and freehanded them on the cakes. It was easier than I thought it would have been. The cake was a big hit. No one touched it till the 4th quarter cause they liked it so much.

I used a French vanilla cake mix for the football. I've found out it tastes so much better than plain white cake. The small cakes I did what was called cherry chip. It was good if you have a thing for cherry. For the football cake I don't know what the technique is called but I used a star tip and did stars on the football. I thought it gave it more of a look of a football instead of just icing it

Coolest Stadium Cake 77

Homemade Stadium Cake

I made this Stadium Cake as a demo for a groom's cake. A co-worker asked me to do one for her 10 year old son.

This was made from two butter cake mixes, iced with butter cream icing, fondant deco. and sugar sprinkles. The groom was not impressed but the 10 year old and his friends loved it.

I made this Super Bowl cake for my husband's Super Bowl Party at his firehouse.

The grass is coconut with green food color. I drew the team logos on the medallions with markers (and directed them NOT to eat!) The "XLIII" is in fondant.

Coolest Steelers Cake 58

This Steelers cake was easy to make. It was half chocolate/half white.

The logo and letters were laid on the cake and outlined, that way it made it a lot more precise instead of trying to freehand.

hi
by: Megan S.

I didn't even realize there were comments on my cake until now. Wow, where have I been. The size of the pan I believe was a half a sheet cake which is a 12 X 18. The letters I printed and cut out. My icing forms a lil bit of a crust so I just pushed the letters down a lil bit to create an indent, then just piped it.
