I made this cake for my step-dad's birthday. He is the ultimate Pittsburgh Steelers Fan! He loves football and all of his birthday gifts this year were Steelers themed so what better way was there to celebrate than having a cake to match the occasion...lol. This one was pretty easy for me. I just used a football cake pan and covered the cake in buttercream icing. I also took a circle of fondant and hand painted the Steelers logo. And he loved it of course! He isn't a fan of icing at all but I had to make it look nice so he didn't mind at all. Again, this is very simple and easy to make :) The pan completely shapes the cake and all you have to do is cover with icing!
My intentions of this blog are to of course showcase my talents but also to encourage others to bake! I want to show people that you do not have to attend a culinary arts school (if you do, that is obviously great!) to be successful in the baking business. You do not need super expensive equipment or a large oven to get wonderful and professional looking results. I have been in this business for a few years and I have learned so much without taking one class! And I want to share with you what I have learned.
