WWE Birthday Cake Idea with No Fondant

Last weekend we hosted a wrestling birthday party for my 9-year-old boy. I was lucky enough to find a wrestling event close to home. So, when I invited some kids over for a wrestling birthday party; it also included a real wrestling show. But…not before wrestling – DIY Pro Wrestling Birthday Cake. A “WWE”- cake! A No Fondant Cake –

But…the real reason for this post is to show you how I made this wrestling cake.

Are you ready to make this Wrestling Cake? Let’s make sure you have everything you’ll need:

Ingredients

You’ll Need:

  • Baked Cake – 2 square layers (one cake batter divided into 2 pans)
  • Black frosting
  • Silver or Black paper straws – I found mine at Target
  • Red Pull and Peel Licorice
  • White Frosting
  • #67 Wilton Leaf tip and piping bag

How do you Make a WWE Birthday Cake?

Instructions:

You’ll want to start out by baking two square cakes and stacking them on your serving platter.

I am not a huge fan of fondant – I have not had the best results working with the stuff. One of these days, I’ll take a course in working with fondant. Until then…I’m happy with my imperfect birthday cakes.

I have found that if you want a true black color, it’s best to start with a dark color like brown (chocolate frosting works great), and add black food coloring

  • The result is a rich black color

  • After I frosted the cake with black frosting, – I used Pull and Peel Licorice to make a little candy cane shape in the middle of the cake

  •  I then used a #67 Wilton Leaf Tip and a bag of white frosting to make 2 Ws in the middle of the cake. the leaf tip did all of the work for me – instant layers of W!
  • The bottom section of the larger W overlaps the licorice piece in the middle of the cake
  • The smaller W goes inside of the larger W
  • I then used silver paper straws that I found at Target for the rope support
  • I just cut them to the size I wanted with scissors and inserted one into each of the  four corners of the cake
  • I then attached pieces of pull and peel licorice around the straws to look like rope
  • I just squeezed the licorice ends around the straws until they stuck together in a nice tight loop
  • I used 8 pieces and trimmed them to fit the length of my cake
  • That’s it – my amateur Pro Wrestling Cake
