Ipswich Town Football Cake
This celebration cake features the logo for Ipswich Town Football Club. I've used red and blue sugarpaste for the shapes on the logo and piped the white details on using royal icing. It's finished off with some blue piping and striped blue ribbon.
Using a sharp craft knife is a great way of getting clean lines when cutting out shapes from sugarpaste, it doesn't pull on the sugarpaste as much as a kitchen knife, which means it keeps it's shape better. Also using a pizza cutter wheel is good for long strips of sugarpaste as the motion cuts down rather than drags ensuring a nice clean cut without pulling the sugarpaste out of shape.
