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!

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!!

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.

Good luck!
