Steelers Birthday Cake


One of my daughter’s friends asked her if she thought I could make her fiance a Steelers jersey birthday cake.  It had to be the black jersey….can you say purple tongue and teeth when they eat the black frosting?

So this is what I came up with. The top half is a chocolate cake with buttercream and raspberry filling. The bottom half is a white cake with a buttercream and raspberry filling.

She didn’t want fondant and trying to use a smooth frosting seemed nearly impossible so I went old school and used little stars. I can get a whole heck of a lot more detail by using the stars. But boy did my hand hurt by the time I got done covering the entire cake in size 16 tip stars.
