Cool Chicago Blackhawks Cake 15

Homemade Chicago Blackhawks Cake

Homemade Chicago Blackhawks Cake

My oldest son is a huge Chicago Blackhawks fan - and asked for a jersey for his birthday cake.

For the homemade Chicago Blackhawks cake I started by making the logo which took about 4 hours in total. I printed the logo out and traced it onto waxed paper. I then flipped the waxed paper over, and using royal icing and a size 3 tip - outlined the symbol in black. I then filled it in with all of the different colours. When it was dry it was just a matter of carefully flipping it upside down and attaching it to the cake with some butter cream.

I cooked up two 9x13 inch cakes using one for the torso and cut the second into thirds (width wise) and used two of the thirds for arms (I angled them so they fit right against the torso) I buttercreamed it and then added some red fondant. I had initially wanted to do the stripes on the jersey in fondant - but ran out of time so (hastily) just piped them on.

It was a HUGE success and the homemade Chicago Blackhawks cake got a lot of comments from people who were at the party location.

So cute! Used this as my inspiration for my son's cake. I did the back of the jersey with our last name & number 8 for his 8th birthday.

Thanks for the explanation!

Thanks! This gave me great inspiration for a friends son's cake!!! Like the first comment, I'm doing the back of the jersey with a name and number, but they want a mini stick for the son to eat. I need to make a Boston Bruins sign for the sides of the jersey and the stick and will use your royal icing idea! Thanks!!

Great Cake!

With Father's Day coming just after the Stanley Cup finals, this will be a great cake (Vancouver version, of course) for my Canuck fans (husband & son-in-law)... Now, we just have to wait for last 1 or 2 games, or I might have to go with Plan B! Hahaha.
(ps, I haven't worked w/ fondant yet, but I'm pretty sure buttercream will work.)

So Awesome!
by: Andrea

This looks amazing! I'm going to attempt the same thing for my boyfriend's birthday next weekend and had a couple questions since this is my first attempt at a fancy cake :)
What colour did you use for the face?
How did you fill in the logo (face and black area) to look smooth?
Also, did you do this in one day, or did you make the cake the day before? I'm thinking with the logo taking so long, if I can at least do some the day before, it will help.
Thanks!!

Coolest Toronto Maple Leafs Cake 25

Homemade Toronto Maple Leafs Cake

Homemade Toronto Maple Leafs Cake

I made this Toronto Maple Leafs Cake for family members moving to Toronto. It was the farewell party cake. It's 2 11 x 15 cake with buttercream icing in the middle. I used plastic dowel rods so the cake would not move to much while being transported to the location.

I covered the cake with a thin layer of buttercream icing. I made my own fondant and covered the cake. This was my first time using fondant on a large cake. It turned out quite well, I was very happy with it. The Toronto maple Leaf emblem in rice krispie squares covered in fondant icing. I added buttercream icing first so the fondant would stick better. The original cake I made for the Maple leaf ended up cracking down the middle of the cake so instead of making another cake I made rice krispie squares and craved out the Maple Leaf.

Hope you like it.

Coolest Prince Albert Raider Hockey Cake 33

I made this Prince Albert Raider Hockey Cake for my son's AA MIdget Raider Hockey Wind UP. I used 6 9x13 cakes layered with a raspberry cream filling to make 3 cakes. Two were laid out horizontally with the third one cut in half to shape for the arms.

I printed the logo off the internet and piped a traced outline of the logo and then removed it to finish the outlines on the inner parts of the logo. I used a #3 tip for the outline, a #16 tip for the colors and a #17 tip for the white icing.

It took about 3 hours for the decorating after I did a thin layer of crumb coat.

This Homemade Boston Bruins Hockey Cake was done for my son's birthday. He is a Bruins' fan. I just baked a round cake (12"), cut in two layers and filled with buttercream.

I printed a logo I found online on a normal piece of paper and placed it on the already dirty iced cake; and with a toothpick outlined the logo onto the cake.

My son LOVED it!

My cousin loves the Maple Leafs. So for her birthday I made her a Toronto Maple Leafs cake. I found a picture of their logo, enlarged it, and printed it out so I could use it as a guideline.

I cut the cake out, piped the blue icing on first, then smoothed it out with a palette knife. I piped the edges and words with white icing.

Thanks. Every year I have done something new with it. Even to the point of icing up teddy grahams as hockey players. Time consuming, awesome, but wont do it again. LOL
