NY Mets Grooms Cake


My friend Jill’s brother got married last week and when she asked me to make his groom cake I was honoured.  Then the kicker came, can it be a NY Mets cake???  S..U..R..E (said ever so slowly) and then to myself (crap!)

I like a good challenge and this was definitely a challenge.  Yay for my new best friend, my kopykake overhead projector.  I got the logo the exact size as my 10” cake and cut out the pieces for the logo.  You definitely need a very sharp knife to cut out the fondant and I put it into the freezer so it would be firm.  This certainly helped.


Anyway, other than the NY Mets was the theme I got free range, so I made a couple of bats and some balls and had fun with it!

I got the thumbs up from Jill and not a piece was left…YAY!


Now my sister wants a cake for her favourite team, the Pittsburgh Steelers.UGH

Thanks for looking!


  1. Anytime you make a cake I think, she's got nerves(or another word) of steel! This is perfect, Karen!

  2. You did a fabulous job on this cake. No surprise that orders for other team cakes are coming your way :)
