Imagine how this mess turns into a cool Saints cake in "just a few" hours!
At this point, it´s just a chocolate cake in a funny shape...
Now its a chocolate cake, ready for the fun part! -Covering the fleur de lis in sugarpaste.
-Hm, how to smooth the sides...?!
I rolled out a long, wide band of sugarpaste and secured it around the side of the cake. Using a thin rolling-pin, i rolled my way around, smoothing the sides nicely.
Cutting the centre Super Bowl logo was quite a challenge!
The top is made of cut out pieces of sugarpaste, inlays-technique. Also a challenge as i (again) baked too big a cake - The board is 40cm!
I loved every single part of this project, thanks to my cousin´s husband for keeping me on my toes! -And for drawing such a great sketch to work from :-)
