You Will Never Walk Alone

My first ever football themed cake :P Was a liverpool cake, not Man Utd, a disappointment to many.. lol!!!

It was an order from my buddy Miss Selina Chew for her daddy dearest, who happens to be a huge liverpool fan. First it was suppose to be cupcakes, but she changed her mind, & wanted a cake. She is a very sweet daughter, cos she's not even in Msia cos she's studying abroad, but made sure her dad gets something special for his bday this year :)

It was a fruit cake heavily infused with rum, when i say heavy.. i meant it! :P Her dad took a bite & said he was dizzy after that.. lol!!!

One of the most challenging part in making the cake was the logo........ many ppl would either get something called an edible photo, where the logo would be printed on this piece of edible sheet, & paste it on the cake. Some will not even put the logo in, would just pipe the wording of the club on the cake.. I wanted it to look special & of course realistic, so i took a risk & tred hand painting it. Although it took me more than an hour to complete only the logo, i was happy with how it turned out. The phoenix/bird was the hardest to paint... i left that the last, cos i was worried that i may ruin the logo & i would have to start all over. thank goodness that didnt happened! :P

the edible logo

compare this to the real one below

The full view, it was the anfield stadium (liverpool's stadium) with a football (also took me one hour to complete.. -_-) & jersey. the cake board was dyed to be grass green with the grassy texture

Some other personal touches done to the cake was the number on the jersey, 58 was her dad's age, & jeffrey was his english name :)

She told me her dad was very excited & happy to receive the cake that he took many pics of it, mostly on the logo :P & the first thing he ate was his jersey! lol

Im happy to be able to make his bday this year a memorable one :)
