football shirt cakes

Hello Chrissy, Thanks for your comments. First can I just say “WOW! Your grandson has just been signed up by Brighton and Hove Albion! That’s fantastic. Congratulations to him. You must be so proud. Right. Onto the cake. I would do 2 times the recipe for my one bowl chocolate cake for a 8&×10” rectangular cake tin. That will produce a cake around 2” deep. I may even be tempted to go for a 3 x the ingredients if I wanted a deeper cake (3” deep). Sometimes the football shirt cakes look a bit odd if they are too tall, but I like a cake to be a decent size so I throw caution to the wind and make it taller. It’s all about preference. All in one chocolate cake I hope that helps. Good luck and have fun. EmmaMT Reply

Hello, Thanks for your comment. Now, I&’ve had a look at the Stoke city Football shirt and boy that looks like a lot of stripes! My only concern with mixing the buttercream topping with the white fondant stripes is that the red food colour is very likely to bleed onto the white icing and it may get a bit messy. I think if I was going to do this football shirt as a cake I would use all fondant icing. I&’d cover the shaped cake with a thin layer of buttercream then I&’d cover the whole cake with white icing. I would then cut out the red stripes to lay over the top. I hope that helps. good luck EmmaMT Reply
