A fabulous cake for a big Seattle Seahawks fan! Yellow cake with caramel buttercream frosting and fondant.
Start with a rectangle sheet cake. Two can be stacked for more depth. Cut off the top 1/4 part of it. Then cut that left over bit at a diagonal to create the sleeves. Reposition the sleeves like so.
Add the base color fondant. I also used an impression mat to give the fondant some tight woven texture like that of a jersey. I used 'Varsity' font to base my numbers and letters off of. Type out the desired numbers and letters and they can be used as a stencil to cut out the letters accurately. Once they are cut attach them with a little water. Then use an extruder to create small ropes in contrasting color, I used green, then added these and then used a wilton embosser wheel tool to create the sewed look.
