Help! I have to make a Met's stadium cake as a favor for a friend. I don't really know much about the Met's or baseball for that matter. It has to be on the smaller side. Anyone have any suggestions
i think you may need to communicate more with your customer. i mean with an iconic place, such as a stadium, you need to go 100% i'd think. even if it's on the smaller side, you still need the basic shape and color of the stadium, the decorations that it's known for on the inside and the out (scoreboard, banners, pennants, logos, etc.). stadiums take a lot of work and a lot of detail and i think it's up to the customer to simplify it for you.
if the customer said, "do whatever you want as long as it's mets stadium" i would think that they would want a replica, whether big or small.
How small is small? Here's some Mets inspiration.
Here's another one.
And here's a top view
Start with a square cake turned on one corner (like a diamond). Use a nice, sturdy cake like pound or WASC. Round off the bottom point of the cake for the entrance point and lop off a bit of the top point (where the scoreboard is). Use fondant to make the exterior arches and such. Maybe do a scoreboard out of gumpaste?
I love the stadium one yummy posted
Very recognizable and I love that the field is under the hat!
I just did a generic baseball field cake for this weekend and it was surprisingly easy.
You could probably go with a similar shape and decorate the sides with the Citi Field arches
Thanks everyone for your help!
I agree with you PiccoloChellie, the one that yummy posted is very cute
