This Homemade Ice Skating Birthday Cake Design took some thinking about, after much deliberation I decided to make the cake out of cereal treats, that's made with 2oz butter, a tsp honey, a few drops of vanilla extract, a full bag of marshmallows, butter, a jug. Put contents in the jug in the microwave for a few minutes until melted, mix in around 6 cups of rice crispies, it will go very sticky, butter a spoon, then you can press the mix into a dish or shape you want. Put in the fridge for a short while to cool then you can push it into any shape, its really good.
I shaped it into a boot shape, let it set in the fridge, then covered it in white fondant first, then worked out the shapes from a real skate. I used a round stitch maker for the stitching effect. I painted the silver parts with lustre dust mixed with clear alcohol. I used a strip cutter for the laces. I added tylose to the fondant to help keep their shape, the blade I let dry for 48hrs. The boot was very heavy, so I cut the cake to lean the skate onto it, to support the the weight because after breaking two blades needed to not have weight on it.
The blade was stuck on with royal icing to secure it. I then sprayed it with edible glaze to finish off, the snow flakes were made with a cutter. I was really pleased with the result.

My daughter is an ice skater so I made her chocolate cupcakes with butter cream icing - tinted to be lime green. The ice skate is royal icing.
To make the ice skate I traced a picture of a line drawing of an ice skate and then put it under a piece of wax paper. Then I traced the ice skate with royal icing (the royal icing should be stiff enough to make a good line).
After the outline was made I put more water into the royal icing until it was the consistency of paint. Then I used a squeeze bottle to fill the icing.
After the boot dried I retraced the boot with the stiff royal icing and added laces and finished it with luster dust so it would sparkle. Sounds hard - but it wasn't - just takes time and a steady hand.
My granddaughter requested an Ice Skate Birthday Cake Design for her party at a local ice rink. I printed an ice skate from an online coloring page, and used this as a pattern to cut out the skate, made from a 9x13 pan of brownies.
The cake was a 9x13 cake, frosted with white buttercream, and lightly sprayed blue with Color Mist, available at craft stores, and some grocery stores. The sugar snowflakes were also purchased where cake decorating supplies are sold (seasonal). After frosting the cake, I laid the cut-out brownie skate on top, used a star tip to ice it white, and, immediately sprinkled silver edible glitter on the blade. Did this before the icing had dried.
I loved doing the cake for her, and I think she loved the cake!
