First Communion: Soccer Pitch

Today, I’ve decided I’m going to catch up on the last three major cakes I’ve done: two First Communion cakes and an 18th Birthday cake.

This communion cake was for my colleague’s son, who loves (as many 8 year olds do) football. He initially told his mother he wanted a Cristiano Ronaldo cake, and although I’m a fairly good cake baker/decorator, I don’t think I’m quite at that level yet! So, we settled for a football pitch, to which she would add a couple of football figurines.

So, I baked a Devil’s Food chocolate cake (the irony of the name and the occasion it was for did not escape me), and used grass green vanilla buttercream between the layers. I then covered the whole thing in a flat layer of buttercream before using my grass tip to pipe grass onto the field. I added the white field markings, and finished with a congratulatory message – in Spanish, no less!

This was a fairly simple cake to make, overall, although it was time consuming to pipe all the grass. It also helped that I had previously made a similar cake back in the fall (Soccer cake for 20), so I knew exactly what I needed to make this one.

Congratulations Sean!
