The Heisman Trophy cake had been on the books for a while, and it was a mere coincidence that it happened to be on the same Saturday as the Miami Dolphins Football Helmet with figures wedding cake. Two football themed cakes for diehard football fans, and the pressure was on! I remember when the Heisman trophy cake request came in. I had to look up the name "Heisman" just to make sure it was spelled correctly on the order, (and again had to confirm the spelling for this blog post). We had certainly heard of the Heisman Trophy, it's the most prestigious trophy in college football, but could not tell you who had won one in recent years. As a sculpted piece Rick was determined to make this difficult structure as true to form as possible. It didn't help that the body in a Heisman trophy contorts itself in a way that doesn't seem natural, or the fact that he had to make the piece look like it was made out of bronze, or that the father of the child who the cake was for was a H-U-G-E football fan -- no pressure there! The sculpted Heisman Trophy was substantial, the photo does not do justice to the size. We were both extremely happy with the completed piece and hope it made a huge impression at the party. When we delivered it to the venue, every football fan in the room who was there setting up commented on how realistic it looked, which we took to be a good sign and a felt a big sigh of relief that Rick had captured such an iconic form as an edible piece. After spending many hours sculpting the piece, Rick as well as myself, will never look at another Heisman Trophy quite the same way again!
