Baking Date: February 2011
The Steelers played against the Packers in Super Bowl XLV. I prepped a special cake and cookies for the party at our friend’s house.
I made gold stars from candy melts. The small ones were for eating — the bigger ones were part of the decorations for the football cake. I added lollipop sticks to the candy melts and later added the letters and decorations with sparkling gel frosting. Note: refrigerate the item once you have applied sparkling gel frosting to the surface – it takes a long time for the gel to set and will run if you try and place anything upright to quickly.
The football cake was a butter cake with chocolate frosting and vanilla frosting:
The final product! Super Bowl cake with Steelers stars, as well as favorite players’ numbers on stars:
Round sugar cookies hand decorated with the Steelers logo in vanilla frosting. The stars are decorated with sparkling gel frosting.
Rolled/cut out gingerbread cookies in round Steelers logos and some heart shapes, decorated with vanilla icing (some dyed black/some dyed pink) and sparkling gel icing. The Henigin’s daughter Sami loves my cookies and I always try and make some very girly designs for her. The pink hearts fill that need:
Sugar cookies in the shape of helmets, footballs, circles and a heart. Decorated with dyed icing.
