I had no idea what i was going to do when I got a request for this WWE Wrestling Cake, but it was fun figuring it out!  One of my first and most faithful customers (other orders I’ve done for her are my first Pink Mod Monkey Cake, the Nautical Themed Cake with the Crab on top, and those cutie-pie Monkey cupcakes!)  requested this WWE Wrestling Cake for her son’s 6th birthday.

Actually, he requested the cake… and I think it turned out pretty cute!  I wasn’t sure where to start but after a couple of Swagbucks searches, I talked with her and she decided on this cake!  I bought some black plastic coat hangers and cut them for the corner posts, then used Twizzler Pull ‘n’ Peel for the ropes.  It was easier than I thought it would be!

A few more details… I used these Wilton Alphabet cutters for the letters and my FMM Ribbon cutter to make the border.  For the WWE Logo, I handpainted it on with Americolor Bright White Gel Coloring, then I mixed some red gel into the white to paint on the read stripes.  This cake is covered with Satin Ice Black Vanilla fondant.

But the best part?  The inside!!  I wish I had a picture to show you!  It was chocolate cake, with chocolate chip cookie dough filling and cream cheese buttercream!  Oh my gosh… I’m thinking it was divine (I’m still on the 40 day sugar fast, so I didn’t get to taste it this time around! ).

Did I miss anything?  If you have questions about how to make this cake, please leave them in the comments!!

    Hi Rose! When you painted the colors onto the black fondant, did you just use them as is, or mix with water? I’ve seen a paint splattered cake online that I would like to make for my daughter but wasn’t sure how the paint splatter would actually showup on black fondant. Do you think bright colors mixed with some white or alone would show up as well as your colors did on this cake? Thanks!

    • Rose says

      I used Americolor Super White for the white, then if I remember correctly, I mixed red into the white for the red “paint”. I don’t think the red gel would show up on it’s own on black. Does that make sense?

      • Amber says

        Yes, that does make sense. I’m so glad I found your blog, because that “paint” idea I’ve been stuck on for a long time. Thanks so much!

    I am making a cake like this for my cousin tomorrow and it has to look good!! This cake is amazing! I have the pull and peal but did you have any trouble with it droping down low? and any other ideas I could use to make the polls ediable?
    Thankyou so much!

    • Rose says

      I tied my ropes tight and they didn’t droop. I’m not sure if you could do them edible or not… I tried to think of something and couldn’t. Maybe if you used gum paste with a lollipop stick in the center… it would dry pretty hard.

    Your wrestling cake is awesome! Can you tell me how yo assembled the poles with the ropes which are tight? I think the “tight” ropes are very important. I don’t want them droopy!!! Also, for the corner posts that are made from a hanger, are they just pushed into the cake or is it inserted into a support? One more question…what size is the cake?
    Thanks so much!!!!
    I have to make a wrestling cake for my grandson next week and it has to be perfect!

    • Rose says

      Hi Kerrie – thank you! It’s been awhile since I did this cake, but I think the hangers were stuck down into large straws. For assembly, I had my husband and son help me hold the poles in place while I tied each rope (peel and pull Twizzlers) – keeping them tight as I worked around all the bottom “ropes” then the top ones. If I remember right, I had quite a few break as I worked so be sure to have extra! And this cake was a 10″ square. I hope that helps :)

      • Kerrie says

        Thank you so much for your help Rose….I’m giving it a go next week. I’ll send you my version. I only hope it comes out as nice as yours!!!!!
        Your site is awesome!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hi I live in Los Angeles CA and I was wondering where are you located and if you live near me if you can make this cake for me :)

    Hi Rose,
    My sisters name is Rosita and we call her Rose. I wanted to know, what did you use to cut the hangers? It appears that you got a clean cut.
    A friend of mine saw your creation and has requested me to duplicate, would you mind?
