UFC Cake

This year for Mikes Birthday he requested a UFC cake.  I got a little ambitious and I even made the cage.  It was made from royal icing.  It turned out great!

I had never made royal icing before so I was quite nervous that the fence would not turn out.

Royal Icing

  • 3 tablespoons Meringue Powder
  • 4 cups (about 1 lb.) confectioners’ sugar
  • 6 tablespoons warm water

Beat all ingredients until icing forms peaks (7-10 minutes at low speed with a heavy-duty mixer, 10-12 minutes at high speed with a hand-held mixer).

I made a few extra, and I am glad I did because a few broke in the process.  After they were piped I let them sit over night and put them on the cake just before serving.
