Today I'm gonna write about the soccer cake I made for my friend Jeff's birthday.I was commisioned by girlfriend Yoyie to bake and decorate a cake that depicted his favourite team The Chelsea Football Club.
The chocolate guinness cake was baked and crumbcoated and then soccer part covered with fondant. I used the Wilton soccer pan to bake the cake.
This is how I traced the logo. I used the pin method in which I meticulously poked the fondant with a small pin through the logo that I copied.
This is how the fondant template looked like after poking.
Then comes my favourite part. The painting. I mixed the gel paste colours with a little bit of clear vanilla essence and painted on the colours unto the fondant.
I realised the blue was a bit dark so I lightened it with some white color to create a lighter blue.
I finished off the shading and the finer details
I added some buttercream grass and the football field look was coming to life!
I painted on the birthday boy's name and age on a cute blue shirt I cut out on fondant..hehe
Tadaaa!!! Chelsea soccer cake done and ready to serve! Hope you enjoyed this. If you wanna see more, you can read about the rainbow cake I made for my daughter's first birthday in my next post!
