This is a Pittsburgh Steelers Cake for a Cleveland Browns fan! He took the joke/cake well! LOL! The cake is a double layered Carrot Cake inside (to at least represent the Browns somehow) and the frosting is a cream cheese frosting! The Steelers emblem I made is made on edible paper. The base I made from printing Steeler prints off the computer and piecing it together on a board to add to the cake's features. The terrible towel is also made on edible paper and it's attached to a plastic square frame to hold it. The number 53 and two shirts on the front are fondont. The Steelers helmets and footballs are plastic additions. I used the big flower tip to edge the entire cake! TO make the carrot cake I made I used 3 cups shredded carrots, 1 cup veg oil, 2 cups of sugar, 1 tsp baking powder, 2 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp baking soda, 2 cups of flour & 4 eggs! Baked at 350 for 30 min's. I made two of these cakes for this photo. The frosting is made by mixing together Half cup of butter (soft) 6oz of cream cheese (soft), 1 tsp of vanilla and four and a half cups of powdered sugar. I made 3 batches of this to make the cake! Hope you enjoy!!!
I made this Saints Vs Vikings Football Cake for a football party during the playoffs this year. I made this cake once before, but wanted to put more detail into this second one. It's fun trying to figure what you can make into a cake and even more rewarding when you're able to execute the project with satisfying results.
This is a white cake with butter cream frosting covered in colored fondant. I just used store bought cake batter and frosting, I also purchase the fondant at Michaels Craft Store. Given the amount of detail that I wanted to put into this cake I figured it would save me a lot of time. Royal icing was used for the lines and lettering.
The goalposts are made out of candy sticks that have been shaped and hot glued together. The football helmets are formed with rice crispy treats and covered with fondant. Face masks are made with floral wire. The Logos are drawn and cut out separately out of gumpaste, left to harden, colored then attached to the cake with a little bit of water.
I get to make a firetruck next week for a birthday party for a 5 year old. I just hope that the finished product turns out like I imagined it.
This is a stadium cake that I designed as I built it so this is not a replica of anything. I used 9 cakes to build this and after sculpting there was probably a whole cake thrown away.
The infield is fondant laying directly on the cake board. There is a canopy that covers the second deck that was made from gum paste and I found after making them for the second time that they do become very fragile. The difficult level is pretty high but well worth it as an end result.
I used sucker sticks to support the weight of the second deck and the canopy and you can purchase these in the chocolate making section of your cake supply store. I like using them because they go into the cake easier than a wood dowel.
My boyfriend is the biggest Seattle Seahawks fan and as a surprise for his birthday I made him a Seattle Seahawks football helmet cake.
I researched the details of a standard football helmet and the look of the specific Seahawks one. I originally wanted a round 3D helmet cake but did not have a oven safe round pan. Execution included: printing out templates I made myself for the shape of the helmet, and the Seahawks logo. A lot of time went into the small details but it turned out just the way I wanted.
I used store bought fondant from Walmart that was plain white and colored it as needed with icing coloring (it was all I had at the time).
