Today I’m sharing a Chevron & Polka Dots Cheerleader Cake. I really wish I had more pictures of this cake, but the truth is – they were terrible! I had to edit the heck out of this one just to have one good one to share!
I managed to also get a couple of good pics of the Megaphone topper as well (see below) but that’s about it!
Anyway – for that reason… I’m gonna give you some bullets with details and keep this post mostly short and sweet 🙂
- The cake was 6″ and 8″ round tiers (round… doh!).
- The flavor was White Almond Sour Cream Cake with Vanilla Almond Buttercream
- The cake was covered and decorated with homemade marshmallow fondant.
- The colors used on the cake were Electric Pink, Electric Blue, Electric Green, and Regal Purple (all Americolor gel colors).
- I used Not Just Cakes by Annie Cutters to do the Chevrons.
- I used a Plaque Cutter for the name plate – I cut out one with the cookie cutter, then laid it over the purple fondant and used an Xacto to cut out the back color slightly larger.
- The letters were cut with Block Tappit Cutters – you can see How to Use Tappit Cutters here.
- For the ribbon on the top tier, I used this ribbon cutter (one of my most favorite tools!), then this ribbed rolling pin to add the line texture.
- I used small round cutters to do the polka dots… or you could use the back-end of a large piping tip.
- I cut the number “4” with a cookie cutter out of gum paste, then after it dried, I painted sugar glue onto it and sprinkled it with silver disco dust.
- For the megaphone, I made a paper funnel, then rolled out pink gum paste and wrapped it around the paper to form the shape. I let it dry for a couple of days so that it would hold up! I also made the handle to dry during that time, then “glued” it together with a tiny bit of melted pink candy melts.
And that’s it… I don’t think there are any other details I could give you! If you have questions – leave me a comment!
