This weekend my brother-in-law celebrated his 30th birthday. Since he is a die hard Redskins fan I thought the perfect cake for him would be a jersey with his name on it!
For some reason, this week has been crazy with cupcake baking. By the end of the week I completely lacked enthusiasm about baking one more thing - But I dug deep and pulled this together. This is the first jersey cake I have ever done and I wasn't sure how much actual cake I would need. I baked one sheet cake and instead of making a one layer cake I decided to cut the sheet in half and make a double layer cake. This resulted in a shorter looking jersey than I had hoped but I think for my first attempt it came out all right.
The cake was Guinness Chocolate and filled with a layer of rich ganache. Underneath the layer of fondant was a caramel Swiss Meringue buttercream.
