Baking The Ice Hockey Team Cake

This weekend was the end of season hockey party. The boys had such a fun time. It was a pot luck dinner and I offered to make the hockey cake. When the boys were younger I used to make their birthday cakes every year, each time with a different theme. However the last couple of years I've been making their favorite desserts instead.

Needless to say I was a little out of practice. I scoured the shops for mini hockey players to put on the cake but they were nowhere to be found! So I ended up stealing the nets off our rod hockey game (they've since been washed again and re-installed on the game!) and decorating the cake with the name of our childrens' team - the Hound Dogs.

It worked out well but the cake was huge so I hope the boys like it because they are going to be finding a slice in their lunch boxes every day this week most likely.


  1. GORGEOUS! I'm sure the boys enjoyed it. I'll have to keep an eye out for little hockey players for the next cake :)

  2. THIS is a fabulous cake Jane! Job well done, and I bet there wasn't a slice left :)
