Seahawks Superbowl Cake


I know this has been long overdue. These past months I have been extremely busy working on settling the logistics of pharmacy school and working on myself which is why I haven't been posting as regularly. Anyhow, I'm here now and just look at my Seahawks Superbowl Cake!


I had my first cake order back in January for a Seahawks Superbowl Cake for the big game. I was extremely excited because it was the first time someone outside the family would get to taste my work! The instructions were simple, any cake flavor and any design. The only requirement was the Seahawks logo and the Superbowl sign.


I sketched up an idea immediately and sent the design over to be approved. Once approved it was all about creating the cake! I worked on the cake over a span of about 3 days. On Friday, I baked off my red velvet cakes and made the cream cheese frosting. On Saturday, I filled and frosted the cake and created my cake topper of the Seahawks bird and the letterings. On Sunday morning, I assembled it together!

This was my first time working with fondant and let's just say, it's no joke! After creating this cake, I definitely have my preference of what fondant brand is best. I bought two kinds of fondant, one by Wilton and the other by Duff. In my opinion, Wilton was horrible. I was going to use Wilton fondant for the whole cake but after I made the blue portion of the Seahawks bird, I knew it wasn't going to work. Wilton's fondant was not only greasy but cracked tremendously when I set it aside! After discovering this, I tried to use Duff's fondant as wisely as possible. Working with only two pounds of Duff Fondant, I created this cake with only a tiny bit left. I was disappointed I didn't have enough navy blue to re-do the Seahawks bird. Oh well, I guess I learned my lesson.


Overall, Duff's fondant just worked better. It was not greasy and had a great flavor. In addition it was very easy to work with and color. Definitely going to be my fondant of choice from now on.
