Football themed cakes are popular and with living in Liverpool they are mostly Liverpool or Everton. I was asked if I could make a Liverpool FC themed cake for a 70th birthday celebration. They had originally asked for a number cake 7 and 0 which I would have been happy to do however I am keen to please all my customers and a numbered cake often works out quite expensive when you have two numbers as the tins used are equal to two cakes which is a lot of cake. I gave them a quote for the 70 shaped cake and also gave them some prices for some other designs which they loved and decided to go for the Liverpool FC shirt cake.
This cake was a vanilla sponge with jam and vanilla frosting filling. Shaped as a football shirt with the number 70 on the back and the birthday boy’s name. The board was decorated in green to represent a football pitch.
