Ravens Cake 1
I made this Ravens cake for my nephew’s 13th birthday. He is a huge football fan and his favorite team is the Baltimore Ravens.
I thought it would be neat to create a football helmet cake and decorate it with purple frosting. I had no idea how far it was going to go!
It started with just a simple round cake, but I didn’t think that was going to be enough for everyone to eat, so since one package of cake mix makes two round cakes, I used the other half of the batter to make the 9x13 that the helmet is sitting on. It was thin, since it was only ½ batter, but it was plenty to feed everyone.
The Ravens cake was made by cutting the edges off. When I did it, it almost looked like a rounded letter T.
Next, I frosted the whole thing with chocolate frosting mixed together with black frosting (it was supposed to be black, but for cost and flavor reasons, I mixed it with chocolate frosting).
I used white frosting to make all of the straps and then outlined the Raven with black gel. I used a blueprint of the Raven from a picture that I got off the Internet.
I finished it off with a black licorice face mask (not pictured here).
I wonder what next year will bring?
