I was asked by a friend of mine to make a Fred Perry logo cake. I baked an 8” round sponge cake and when cold I filled with jam and butter cream and then sandwiched together and then covered the whole cake in butter cream and placed in the freezer for 10 min until hardened.
I then covered it in white roll out icing and then set aside to harden slightly while I colored some icing in black. I used roll out icing and flower paste, using a half moon large icing tube I cut out the leaves for the logo and let them harden before attaching them to the cake. This was the difficult part getting the logo in the right shape. I then attached numbers 1 and 2 to the front of the cake in black.
I then pipe iced around the top and bottom edge of the cake in white. When this had hardened I colored some royal icing in black and piped some black around the base of the cake too. I then changed the nozzle on the piping bag to the small writing tip and slightly pressed a moon shape into the side of the icing on the cake with a large piping nozzle and piped the logo around the side of the cake in three places. I then attached a name to the cake board, and sprinkled the name with glitter. The cake was now finished.
