UGA Sanford Stadium

I always love a good challenge, especially when it comes to cakes.  When I had clients ask for a quasi-replica of UGA's Sanford Stadium, I knew that I had my work cut out for me.  I visited all my favorite web sites and really couldn't find any good blueprints of the stadium, only seating charts (which were still helpful).  Finally I ordered a scale model off the Internet.  I used the model to take measurements and transfer them on to graph paper.  Then I used the graph paper to make my full-size patterns.

I know it's hard to tell, but this cake is actually mostly cake.  There are a few rice crispy treats, and it has its fair share of modeling chocolate, fondant, and edible images, but 95% is just pure delicious cake.

I delivered this groom's cake to the Dalton Golf and Country Club.  None of the guests were there yet, but I think all of the staff came out and took pictures with their phones.

  7. What were the dimensions for this cake and on what scale is it to the real thing? i'm working on a model for a project and i can't find the dimensions for the real thing anywhere. You'd really help me out if you told me! thanks! ='] P.S. Amazing job! i would say it looks good enough to eat but it looks TOO good to eat.

  10. Natalie - Thanks! I won't lie - it was a lot of work, but we had an absolute blast making it!

    Trey - Hi! Oh my, it has been a while... I don't remember exactly, but carved cakes have to be a denser cake, like a madeira or pound cake.

    This post is well over a year old, and it's getting a lot of traffic; was it featured on another blog or something?
