Grandview Grooms Cake

While I was very disappointed in the pictures I took of this cake, I was very pleased with the cake itself.

When I took Mike McCarey's class some time ago, he said that he cut a lot of his cakes at an angle for static logos and that's what I did with this one (although you can't really tell it from the pics... grrr).  It does make it easier to see!

For the logo, I had Chad enlarge the logo onto card stock paper and then use poor man's laminate (packing tape) to seal both sides.  From that, I used the entire template to cut the light blue edging (using modeling chocolate, thank goodness).  I then cut off the light blue edging from the template and cut the dark blue parts out.  When I was done, my template was all cut up, but all my modeling chocolate pieces were exactly what I needed.  I put everything together and the different levels of the modeling chocolate made it not so flat and gave it an extra little layer of dimension to it.

  3. That's perfect! I have a groom's cake due next month and that's the logo he wants! I'm a little nervous since I've never done one like that before. You did a great job!
