Manchester United Cake

"A very real looking Manchester United Cake!"

I made this cake for my brother’s 23rd birthday. He is a die hard MU Football fan and was smiling from cheek to cheek when I presented the cake to him. You too can make this cake for your friends or family members.

Things you need to decorate the cake:

  • Butter icing in green and white
  • Goal posts
  • Fondant for Man United logo
  • Food coloring is red, yellow and black

Cake decorating tips:

Manchester United logo:

  • Get hold of a picture or template of the Manchester United logo.
  • Roll fondant to a thickness of about 1/6 inch. Cut out the Manchester United logo from the fondant. Using a toothpick, trace out the rest of the logo details onto the cut-out logo.
  • Leave the logo aside to set. It is best to leave it to set for at least one day.
  • Once the logo is set, paint it with red and yellow food coloring. Outline the logo with black color.

Assembling the cake:
  • Prepare your cake and place it on a cake board. Using the green icing and a grass nozzle, pipe out green grass all over the top of the cake. You can even do the same for the sides of the cake. For the border, I used a slightly darker shade of green icing and piped one row of dark green grass all around the base of the cake.

  • Next, using white icing, pipe the football field lines and place the goal posts in place.
  • Finally, lift the Manchester United logo very gently and place in on the cake.
