How to Make a Sports Birthday Cake

Easy directions for making this sports birthday cake:

Bake a sheet cake the size that you need.

With an icing filled bag and round tip, size #5, draw a shirt on the cake top. Cut the cake away from the shirt using the cut pieces to add to the shirt sleeves on the sides of the cake.

You will use the star tip, size #18 to fill in all of the cake and the round tip, size #5 to do all of the outline work.

First, fill in the sleeve markings with yellow icing and the star tip.

Next, fill in the child’s name (or adult’s name) across the back of the shoulders of the shirt.

Now make black icing and make a large number that is the child’s (or adult’s) age.

Also put this number on the shoulders of the shirt.

With white icing, fill in the rest of the shirt.

Use your black icing and round tip and outline the yellow strips on the sleeves and the name.

Now use your white icing and round tip and outline the entire shirt and sleeves not forgetting the yoke line across the back of the shirt between the name and the numbers.

This cake was made for a Pittsburgh Steelers fan, but you can make it for any football team by using the team colors.
