I had some requests for pictures of the cakes I’ve been making, so thought I would share my latest cake I made for a high school graduation. My cakes are nothing fancy, but I have fun making them. I’m glad I have clients who are willing to allow me to learn on their cakes:)  Love this football field cake!

This cake was a half sheet cake size and I only used fondant for the colored sections on top.  The sides were just smoothed white buttercream frosting.

Cutting out the letters is definitely a tedious and frustrating job. I used an extremely sharp exacto knife and replaced the blades often so they cuts would be smooth and clean.  I now understand why there is a Cricut for cutting fondant! If only I had the $350 to get one. I would have to be making a lot more cakes to justify buying something that awesome. Maybe one day when my kiddos are grown…..

Wow, that looks amazing! Do you use cookie cutters for the letters or just cut with a knife?
