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.
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.
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.
