WWE Cake Tutorial

div dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;"Let's get ready to rumble!br /divMy first try at a WWE themed cake. When I got the request I had the deer in the headlights look.There really isn't much out there in  the way of cake and cupcake decor with the WWE theme. /divdivIt's actually quite surprising based on how popular it is./divdivAt the last minute I decided to make a cake that looked like the ring./divdivbr //divdivFor the cake I baked 3  - 8 inch square cakes./divdivI filled and stacked these before letting them settle overnight./divdivWhile those were settling I made the posts out of a href="http://www.globalsugarart.com/poly-dowels-cake-supports-c-1168.html"poly dowels/a covered with black fondant.br /br /div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-M0yHkrEiBwY/UvpzakoxMMI/AAAAAAAACvY/rQxqNzh3HvU/s1600/IMG3451.jpg" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"img border="0" height="320" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-M0yHkrEiBwY/UvpzakoxMMI/AAAAAAAACvY/rQxqNzh3HvU/s1600/IMG3451.jpg" width="240" //a/divbr //divdivFor the ropes I used bucatini pasta painted with red food color. br /First I tried licorice laces, then I tried wooden shish kebob skewers. Trial and error brought me to the bucatini which worked perfect!br /div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"/divPaint these and allow them to dry along with the posts.br /br /div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-V3equKd6Ch8/UvpzS9v1LcI/AAAAAAAACvI/PhESQDkJCLc/s1600/IMG3448.jpg" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"img border="0" height="320" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-V3equKd6Ch8/UvpzS9v1LcI/AAAAAAAACvI/PhESQDkJCLc/s1600/IMG3448.jpg" width="240" //a/divbr /br //divdivI made the # 12 using the a href="http://www.dafont.com/wwe-raw.font"WWE RAW/a font on dafont. Make this at least 2 days in advance so it will be nice and stiff when it comes time to stick the numbers on top of the cake.( I didn' t get a photo of this but you can see it in the final photo.)/divdivI admit, I have an obsession with John Cena and I'd LOVE a little sugar version of him on this cake. Unfortunately this was a last minute order so I opted to use a number topper to populate the ring./divdivbr //divdivIn the morning I iced the cake using black fondant over vanilla buttercream.br /br /div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-dy74Xja7oVs/Uvpyxc61zKI/AAAAAAAACuY/qnenUyEuFY/s1600/IMG3440.jpg" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"img border="0" height="320" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-dy74Xja7oVs/Uvpyxc61zKI/AAAAAAAACuY/qnenUyEuFY/s1600/IMG3440.jpg" width="240" //a/divbr //divdivI covered the top of the cake with a square of white fondant.br /I printed a WWE logo with my edible image printer for the center of the ring.br /br /div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-nDGoRGO4dhE/UvpytkDZwJI/AAAAAAAACuQ/ufwxd5BEZmc/s1600/IMG3441.jpg" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"img border="0" height="320" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-nDGoRGO4dhE/UvpytkDZwJI/AAAAAAAACuQ/ufwxd5BEZmc/s1600/IMG3441.jpg" width="240" //a/divbr /I had planned on drawing it on the mat with edible pens, which if you do not have an edible image printer , will work beautifully.br /br /div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-HzN6Co2fiYE/Uvpx3WEN41I/AAAAAAAACt8/coTdmLkRm2A/s1600/Unknown.jpeg" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-HzN6Co2fiYE/Uvpx3WEN41I/AAAAAAAACt8/coTdmLkRm2A/s1600/Unknown.jpeg" //a/divbr //divdivUsing the same WWE Raw font I made a template to cut out the " Raw" logo and the name. I cut everything in reverse so I can just wet the backs and stick to the cake.
