This NY Giants jersey themed grooms cake was commissioned by a bride as a surprise for her soon-to-be husband at their rehearsal dinner this past weekend. Inside was a red velvet cake with cream cheese filling - his favorite!
It was decorated to look like a football jersey, with the couple's last name across the top, the NY Giants logo in the center and a mini-football on top. Lying in a bed of fall leaves to denote the season, this cake was really fun to make!
Making the leaves was a fun project - they are made of fondant and I got the colors by mixing different colors together and rolling them out while they still had a tie-dyed look, rather than fully mixed together. Leaf cut-outs and my newly discovered favorite decorating tool - veiner molds - really brought them to life! My favorite leaf is the dark maroon colored one in the front! :)
