Saskatchewan Roughriders Cake(s)

Oops! I forgot to post about this cake!

Every year SIGA (where my husband works) holds a bake sale/auction thing to raise money for their kids Christmas party. Last year I donated this cake with the SIGA logo on it and it raised a lot off money! This year, since the sale/auction was on the Friday before the Grey Cup and Saskatchewan was IN the Grey Cup, I made a Saskatchewan Roughriders logo cake in hopes that it would make a bunch of money. And it did! Sadly the Riders lost, but the cake was great! :)

In honour of the Riders, I made green velvet cake. Similar to red velvet,! VERY green!

The batter was eerily green

I didn't get a photo of the inside of the cake, but I had made some test cupcakes a while back so this is what the baked cake looked like

The cake was 2 layers of 10" round cakes filled with cream cheese icing, then iced with white buttercream and covered in white fondant. The logo was made of fondant, gum paste, and royal icing.

I put a little gum paste bow around the base to finish it off. I didn't want to do anything TOO girly since it was a football cake.

I actually made 2 of these cakes because I accidentally made way too much cake batter. But it all worked out fine because I took one to my workplace and took the leftovers of that cake to SIGA. So everyone had a chance at some green velvet cake.
