Hi,

My son is a big Detroit Red Wings fan so he wanted his Groom's Cake decorated with the logo. I used a large, marble sheet cake , decorated it with white cream cheese icing and used a Detroit Red Wings Logo that I enlarged and made a stencil. I then drew in the stencil with red icing and removed the stencil. It looked very nice surrounded with red and white napkins and my son was happy..and so was the bride!

I did our wedding cakes in June 07 when we got married. My hubby only eats german chocolate cake so I made 2 9x 13 cakes and then frosted them. He builds highways so I took some new caterpillar machinery pieces and made the cake look like a road being built and then put hersey kisses all around the outside of the cake. Big Hit at the reception. I did not want traditional type cakes so I made my own. Good luck and use your imagination, whatever makes you happy is what you should use.

Most of the recipes offered seem wonderful! I would bake it in an large oven-proof bowl. When cool, place in the center of a platter or one of those boards they sell for cakes at a decorating store. Tint white frosting black and ice the inverted half circle. Bend a black twizzler in half and insert each end into the cake to form a loop. Add a chain made of black licorice nibs strung on strong thread or dental floss and voila, a ball and chain! Crush a package or two of chocolate creme sandwich cookies coarsely. Spread chocolate frosting around the ball (on the cake board or platter.) Sprinkle the cookie chunks around the ball to make it look like the gravel from a rock-breaking chain gang if you want.
