Galatasaray Grooms Cake

This groom’s cake was a challenge for me to make. I had never made a freestanding cake before , nonetheless a top heavy one. The body of the cake is vanilla cake with cream cheese froasting. The shoulders and neck of the cake are scultpted out of rice krispy treats. The bride surprised the groom with a replica of his favorite soccer team’s jersey. Galatasaray is a Turkish Soccer Team. Unfortunately Turkey did not make it  to the World Cup but the timing of this cake very appropriate as we are in the midst of the World Cup 2010.

I drove this cake an hour and a half to Chateau Briand in Carle Place, Long Island NY.
