Coolest Habs Hockey Puck Cake 31

Homemade Habs Hockey Puck Cake

Homemade Habs Hockey Puck Cake

For this Habs Hockey Puck Cake, I used my regular chocolate cake recipe (from Baker's Chocolate) and baked two 8" round cakes. Between my layers, instead of icing, I put a filling made of white chocolate, cream and butter. I had trouble making it stay on the cake (even with a "wall" of icing around the cake) because it was too warm when I put it. After a while in the freezer, it stayed in the middle and everyone liked that.

Then, I prepared buttercream icing. I used the recipe on the Wilton website (I only used butter and no vegetable shortening). I also made rolled marshmallow fondant with the recipe found on the Wilton website.

Then, I coloured part of my fondant black and rolled it out to put it on the cake. After, I coloured my fondant Royal Blue and Red. For the logo, I used a shirt I had and traced it on parchment paper. I cut out all my pieces and transferred it to my fondant. I used a knife to cut around my paper on fondant and transferred all the shapes on the cake.

Overall, I think the longest part was to actually trace and cut out my pieces of parchment paper. Paying attention to details was well worth it!

Coolest Buffalo Sabres Cake 20

Homemade Buffalo Sabres Cake

Homemade Buffalo Sabres Cake

This Buffalo Sabres Cake was made on an 11"x15" sheet with buttercream icing. I frosted the entire cake in white. I Googled the Buffalo Sabres logo and printed out the size I needed. Then, I traced in onto waxed paper. I put the waxed paper drawing on top of the frosted cake and traced over the lines with a toothpick. (I held the waxed paper in place with a few toothpicks to be sure my design didn't move while tracing).

After my logo was outlined on the cake, I just filled it in with the correct colors using Wilton's #16 tip to make the "stars" (Be sure your buttercream is a med-thin consistency or those stars will be difficult to push out).

I used tip #21 in a zigzag motion in white for the border around the top and bottom of the cake. The lettering is done with tip #5 in yellow, over tip #16 in blue. This was for my son's 11th birthday- he and his friends all thought it was "really cool".

Coolest Oilers Birthday Cake 16

Homemade Oilers Birthday Cake

Homemade Oilers Birthday Cake

I wanted to surprise my husband for his 30th birthday. His favorite NHL hockey team is the Oilers. So I thought I would make him an Oilers cake.

I hand drew the symbol on paper that would fit on an 9x13 cake. Once drawn I had made 2 copies for templates. I cut each template out with different parts so it would be in one piece so I was able to trace on the cake.

I made a chocolate cake in a 9x13 pan. Made buttercream icing to decorate with. Tips used were 2, 4, 16, and 18. I did the base in white then took one template, placed it on and traced it with a toothpick. Peeled it off, placed the 2nd template on and traced the remaining of the picture.

Used tip #4 traced the outline matching the colors of the symbol. used tip #16 to fill in with the stars. Used tip #18 to finish the edge of the cake. Used tip #2 to do the writing.

Coolest Buffalo Sabres Cake 17

Homemade Buffalo Sabres Cake

Homemade Buffalo Sabres Cake

My husband and I are huge Buffalo Sabres hockey fans. For his birthday this year, I made him a homemade Buffalo Sabres cake. The cake is a milk chocolate cake with strawberry filling. The cake is frosted with buttercream icing.

To make the logo, I traced the logo onto paper, then cut out the individual pieces. I then rolled out fondant and placed the pieces on and cut them out with a knife. I arranged the pieces to look like the logo.

Since the whole cake was already covered in blue icing, I dyed icing a golden yellow color, I then put it in a decorating bag with a flat tip and covered the sides, which I then smoothed out. I didn’t want to apply the yellow icing directly with the spatula, because I didn’t want it to appear green.

Unfortunately, a few days after his birthday, the Sabres were eliminated from the playoffs. But it’s OK, we’ll keep rooting for them year after year!

Homemade Hockey Jersey Cake

Homemade Hockey Jersey Cake

I made this Hockey Jersey Cake for my son's hockey windup party. It's just a regular cake mix.
I used buttercream icing.

I actually had to freeze the cake for a week due to the weather. The party was postponed. I have to say that it tasted just a fresh as the day I would have made it. The buttercream icing was awesome.

Would you mind sharing how you cut the cake to look like a shirt? How big was the cake pan? Did you bake 2 cakes? Can't figure out how to make it!! Please share the pattern. Thanks so much!


how to cut the jersey cake
by: Lucy

You will need to bake 2 cakes to get the sleeves onto a a regular 9 X 13 cake, Cut second 9 X 13 into 2 rectangular pieces & connect to the side of the complete 9 X 13 & ice. Best icing recipe is on Wilton website...always use pure white shortening so colors are true & icing dye takes well to it. :)
Good luck creating!

Coolest Hockey Goalie Cake 14

Homemade Hockey Goalie Cake

Homemade Hockey Goalie Cake

My son is a goalie for his hockey team. This year he wanted a hockey goalie cake for his birthday.

I made a hockey player cake using the Wilton hockey player cake pan and adapted it to look like a goalie. My son's favorite NHL team is the Anaheim Ducks so I made the goalie pads look like J.S. Guigere's pads.

He loved it!
