My son was really big into hockey last year, so of course he wanted a hockey cake. I didn't think I could make the Maple Leafs logo so I made these two hockey sticks with two pucks.
I traced my son's mini sticks (plastic mini hockey sticks) onto cardboard boxes and cut them out. I made 2 white cakes in 9x13 pans. I wasn't sure how much cake I would need so I made extra round cakes and made them into pucks. After cutting them out of cardboard I placed them on top of the cooked cakes and cut out the shapes (one cake made one hockey stick). Then I pieced them together like a puzzle until they made the picture shown. Leftover pieces of cake were then cut to fill some of the gaps. I called the local grocery store and asked them if I could buy royal blue, black and white icing which was really inexpensive and I didn't have to experiment with colors.
For the details on this hockey sticks cake I used an icing bag and made the lines. I printed off my son's hockey team's logo and cut it to fit on the pucks. Before putting it on the pucks I put a small circle of plastic wrap so the icing wouldn't leak through to the paper. All the boys loved it!
This Homemade Hockey Themed Cake was done for my son's team "End of Season" party. I baked 3 round cakes in different sized cake pans (12", 10" and 6"). The cake recipe is a chocolate recipe I make from scratch and I filled it with vanilla custard, also made from scratch.
The colors of the team were blue and white. I covered all 3 layers with white marshmallow fondant. The seams between layer were piped in blue buttercream and then I added the blue marshmallow fondant stripes.
With a mixture of gum paste and marshmallow fondant I cut all of the jerseys with an utility knife. I made my own template. Then when dried, I colored them and wrote each child's name and number.
I rolled some white gum paste and made the banners. The pucks where made with black gum paste. The topper was also made with gum paste and fondant. It took me a whole week to dry. The hair was piped with black buttercream.
There were some girls in the team so I acknowledged them with some cute little rolled roses made of gum paste.
Needless it is to say that the cake was a HIT with both children and parents.
This Montreal Canadiens Ice Cream Cake is actually an ice cream cake, and the first one like it I had ever made! To make it I baked and froze 2 9x11 chocolate cakes.
First, I iced the top layer. I wanted to make it look like a Canadiens Hockey jersey. I used Wilton "No Taste Red" for the red areas of the cake. I found the logo online, printed it out and then traced it with a toothpick onto the cake. I then kept referring back to it to get the design right as I filled it in with icing. All of the icing is buttercream icing.
To make it an ice cream cake, I took the other frozen layer out of the freezer, spread all of box of chocolate ice cream over it, set the decorated layer on top, and then spread white icing around the sides to connect it all together. Because it was an ice cream cake it needed to stay in the freezer until time to serve.
It was a huge huge hit with the 7 yr old birthday boy and his family and friends.
