Do ya’ll remember me posting this New Orleans Saints Birthday Cake in the You CAN Freeze Fondant Cakes post? Well I recently had a reader email me and ask if I could share some more details about this cake, so Deasha, here ya go!
This was an 8″ round vanilla cake filled and frosted with vanilla buttercream then covered in homemade marshmallow fondant. The gold fondant was covered with Americolor Gold gel color and the black was Satin Ice Black Vanilla fondant.
I started by cutting out a large circle of black fondant for the top. Then I added the stripes; I used my FMM Ribbon Cutter to cut two different widths, then laid the gold over the black and attached it with sugar glue. I used my silicone pearl mold to do the black bead border.
I hand cut the jersey with an Xacto knife from black fondant, then used a fine point paint brush and Edible Gold Paint to add the number and letters to the jersey. The football was cut with a Wilton football cookie cutter and I added the white details with my extruder.
And I think that’s it… all the details of my New Orleans Saints Birthday Cake.
