They had asked another cake maker at the same show about it and was met with a bit of reluctance and were told "that was a tall order". I, on the other hand, (they said), replied with "Heck Yeah!" and the aforementioned "No Problem!"
Which, thankfully, is how I still felt when they came in. So excited to make this cake! And, of course, gotta have a digital scoreboard and have lights.
One big help is my art background and work in ceramics. Problem solving in 3 dimensions is fun! So with lots of digital images and templates that I constructed I began the components for this build a good 2 months before the wedding. Here is the finished cake and below, you can see the build in progress along with a nifty video that shows the digital scoreboard and lights (thank you my husband and his trusty Go-Pro).
|All the wall panels and towers cut out of sugar gum-paste, painted and ready to go.|
|Carving the cake. The cake board was already covered but we carved and iced the cake on a foam core board to keep any icing mess off of the finished board. Note all the stadium pictures in the foreground.|
|Cake carved and "dirty iced" or as some other people say "crumb-coated". I like the term dirty iced myself. It just tickles me.|
|The advertising signage is all the vendors that worked this wedding.|

|Diana (the bride) chose a DIY (Decorate It Yourself cake) from me and had Ashley make a topper for it. Super gorgeous and oh so simple.|
