I was asked to do a Steelers cake for a 12 year olds birthday for this weekend. He wanted a marble cake with chocolate icing. I hated the thought of doing an all brown cake, so I decided to do a base also. The base is a 9x13 marble cake covered in buttercream icing. On the sides I used the basketweave tip and on the top I used the grass tip to make it look like the football is sitting in the grass. The football is also a marble cake that I made using a shaped pan. It is covered in chocolate buttercream icing with a little bit of buttercream icing to add the details. I had trouble writing small enough with my tip to fit Steelers inside the circle of the logo, but I think it looks ok. I will be delivering the cake this morning. I think Taylor and his dad are going to like it.
