Yankee Stadium Cake

A few weeks ago I was commissioned to make a Yankee stadium cake for a 1st birthday party - I was pretty excited to try it! I'm including pictures of the was a yellow cake with raspberry filling, vanilla frosting, and covered with fondant. After baking the cakes, filling and stacking them, I carved the cakes into the shape of the new Yankee Stadium. Next, I carved out the center of the stadium - to be honest, I couldn't believe how easy it went!

I then frosted the cake, rolled out the fondant, and (expecting a big struggle to get the fondant over the cake without cracking) got the fondant on and smoothed down in ONE attempt! I was really excited. :) My twin boys and husband were napping, so unfortunately I had no one to share my excitement with - haha - so I waited until my husband woke up and came in to check on the then I felt like I could be cool and professional about it, so when he opened the fridge and was like "Wow! It looks great!" I was able to say "Aww, thanks!" But inside I was beaming with cake dork pride ;)

I had made all the signs for the stadium the night before, so I was able to start attaching those to the outfield fence right away. I laid out the field in green fondant, the bases and baselines in white, and finally a black fondant base for the stands. I used confetti sprinkles for people - that was really time consuming getting all those on there! But I loved how it looked when it was finished.

I finished off by adding the "YANKEE STADIUM" sign out front and adding the tall archways that appear on the new stadium as well...and couldn't believe I was finished! Hope you like how it turned out!
