This past weekend, I was asked to design a cake for a hockey themed party. My client and I brainstormed on a handful of ideas of possible cake designs - such as a big hockey puck, a skating rink, a jersey, etc. I don't think either of us were completely sold on any of the ideas but we settled on designing a hockey bag filled with stuff that Joe likes.
Less then a week before the event, I (along with every other Canadian) was watching the Olympic Men's final hockey game - Canada vs. USA - and it hit me. A life-sized cake of the Stanley Cup.
... Three sleepless nights later, it was finished.
