Simple DIY Hockey Cakes

I am not a professional cake decorator, but I love making simple cakes for my boys' birthdays.  Today, I am sharing the secrets behind the two easy hockey cakes I made for my oldest son's 9th birthday.


I made both of these cakes with cake mixes in 9X13 pans.  I greased the pans well to make sure they came out in one piece.  Also, I did a crumb coats, refrigerated the cakes, and then did final layers of icing.

For the first cake, I did a full ice surface, and I used the figures off my boys' tabletop hockey table (after washing them thoroughly, of course).


For the second cake, I did a partial ice surface, and I used some cake toppers I purchased from the bakery department at my local supermarket.


I think my boys' appreciate the time I spend making their cakes special, and I enjoy it too.  Do you prefer homemade or professional cakes for your children's cakes?

  1. We prefer simple homemade cakes too.
    I rwcently made a snowflake out of blue sugar for our 1 year old and we iced a cake with both chocolate (dirt) and vanilla (snow) icing and placed a Monster Truck on top for our 3 year old.
