The “ULTIMATE” cake for UFC fans! My friend Kim helped me create this cake for Matt. This octagon cake was a double-layer round cake that I cut away on 8 sides and covered in white fondant. We used sparklers on the 8 corners to add some fireworks. NOTE: Burning sparklers WILL melt plastic mesh (used for the cage)… For precise fondant shapes like these, I often first design the elements on the computer (using Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop), print it out at the size needed, and use that paper as a template for cutting the fondant shapes.
