I've been making super bowl cakes for a long time, I don't know how many years, maybe 10 and that includes missing a year or two. It started when I saw this cake in a magazine
and was like, I can totally do better than that and trust me. Mine was way cooler. I even had a peanut m&m football. And it was completely obvious from my cake I know nothing about football as I had like 5 different plays going at once. Other cakes have included a half time show featuring quarter machine aliens playing instruments. They usually have team logos on them, but not always because some teams have sucky logos *cough*Patriots*cough* and have gone to the super bowl a bunch of times and did I mention their logos suck? anyway this year the logos aren't too bad. Here are some pictures of the cake in the making and I will update it after Sunday when we eat it.
My sister sent me a cool cake link on Pinterest and I used it to make the cake.
Here are the pictures
|Batter in the pan. I felt VERY Dr. Suess|
|After it had been baked|
|Pretty colors inside! |
Not sure why so many holes though...
|Frosted cake with stencil I printed and cut out and frosting.|
It's two layers, fyi.
|Stencil on the cake, smeared with frosting. It's much more|
complicated than it looks. You have to make sure the paper
doesn't move and get frosting in the wrong places.
|Stencil has been removed.|
The gaps had to be filled in by hand. I used a shish kabob skewer...
|Finished cake. I had to put in the sprinkles one at a time as|
I was too lazy to make another stencil.
Also I was concerned it would mess up the blue frosting.
