so, this lady Im making a cake for is surprising her husband who is a big 49ers fan. I made this cake, which is due in a few hours, but to me it looks pretty dull/plain. Do you all have any suggestions of something I can add to it to spruce it up a bit...or alot icon_lol.gif I think I am going to make a scoreboard and put that on the cake with some dowels. ANY suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks!

I think it looks absolutely awesome!! I love it just as it is! I personaly would not do anything more to it. The scoreboard would be the only other thing I would add. If possible, maybe SF in the endzones. but you really don't need it. How did you do it? It looks awesome! My family would go nuts!

I think it's a great cake! If you do another one, you might want to put goal posts...

But really, it looks GREAT to me - and I am a HUGE football fan!

OK I have to ask! I love the sprinkles you used for the "Fans". How did you get them to stick without making a huge mess?

this cake was made using a 9x13 pan and is 4 layers. I carved out the middle and rounded out the sides to help it look more like a stadium. When I buttercreamed the inside sides of the cake, I quickly put the sprinkles on (they came in a little shaker container). I actually didnt have a problem getting them to stick. After that crusted I put in the green on the bottom so that it would cover any sprinkles that trickled to the bottom. I forgot which tip I used, I think it was the flat wide one that has ridges on one side and is smooth on the other. theres also another small sheet cake under the grass.

That did a fantastic job. You can almost hear the "Fans" cheering! Great job.
