Cincinnati Bengals Cake

Apparently 11 year old boys like sports? I wouldn't really know since I have all girls. But I have an 11 year old tom boy who likes sports, so I guess this makes sense. This birthday boy's favorite football team is the Cincinnati Bengals. That was the only direction I was given and what size of cake he wanted. I had fun coming up with the design for this, which changed about 3 times. I wanted to do a football helmet and football on top out of modeling chocolate. Then the weather decided to be 75 degrees and my chocolate was way too soft to model anything. I did try my hand at painting for the first time. The bengal is all hand painted by moi. This tiered cake is 8", 6" French vanilla/chocolate fudge marble with chocolate pudding filling, vanilla buttercream, and covered in fondant.


  1. Wow that is awesome!! Great job hand painting that tiger!

  2. How much would you take, to make another one, just like that? 😍
