San Diego Chargers Birthday Cake

Wednesday, October 29, 2014
A good friend of mine turned 33 a few weeks ago.  He is a huge Chargers fan and his wife requested a birthday cake for him so... sports cake!

I love how this cake turned out.  I really wanted to get an image printed on icing for the top, but most shops won't print a logo that isn't yours.  So I had to get creative.

I used cream cheese icing and a vanilla pound cake to build the birthday cake.  Then I piped the logo and the numbers to go on the top of the cake.

For the sides, I used a watercolor technique to blend the colors but also leave them whole as yellow and blue.  I really like how it turned out!  Men's cakes are always a challenge.  I love fancy piping, delicate flowers, and feminine colors.  PLUS this guy hates chocolate.  CHOCOLATE!  (I know, crazy.)  I had to really think outside the box since chocolate is my go to cake for guys.
