Warriors Grand Final Baking

Warriors League ball cookies, Jersey cake, Max – future Warrior (as delicious as any baking), Warrior cupcakes

Today was an exciting day in our household - the NRL Grand Final day always is – but this year it was very special because the Warriors were playing for the second time since since the club formed in 1995 (their first grand final was in 2002 and I was there!). We had triple the reasons to be excited this year as all three Warriors sides were playing (the Vulcans and the Under 20’s as well as the first grade side), while the Vulcans and Senior team lost the Under 20’s won back to back titles. To celebrate I baked some of these biscuits in the shape of league balls and made this chocolate cake (making one and a half times the mixture) to make the jersey cake and cupcakes.

The jersey was a really simple shape to make, I cut it free hand and just used a star tip to pipe on coloured buttercream frosting, I used the same buttercream frosting on the cupcakes. To get the swirled two tone effect on the cupcakes I placed the two colours side by side in my piping bag.

Even though I didn’t get the result I wanted from the game I had great fun and hopefully have given you some fun ideas for a sports party – or maybe a Rugby World Cup party in the coming weeks!
