Ok, so my good friend's wedding is next weekend, and she asked me to make her cake, and since they are huge hockey fans, she asked for a Stanley Cup cake. I am pretty sure I can handle the basic construction of it, but what I am wondering about is how to attach the "cup" to the top. I baked a pound cake in the Wilton sports ball pan. Should I cut a bit off the bottom of 1/2 the ball and put a small peice of cardboard under it? I was thinking of putting a dowel through the top layers so that the cup won't roll off. Any ideas?????
yes, trim off a small flat area.
weight is probably not enough to warrant cake board
yes, a dowel would be a wise idea.
Thanks Doug! I also made sure that B&G got a VERY SMALL topper. I made an extra "cup" just in case!
check out ace of cakes...duff just made the stanley cup cake in the last episode...it turned out awesome!!!
Yes, but I don't think I have Duff's talent, so I won't even attempt to replicate his!! I am just hoping that top doesn't roll off!!
dont doubt yourself!!! U can atleast get an idea from how they held it together...LOL!!! GOOD LUCK!!!
You should really check out that episode of Ace of Cakes. That Stanley Cup cake was a monster!!! You may not be able to replicate it exactly, but you can mimic some of his design techniques.
