Your Best Penn State-Themed Cakes

Last week, we asked you to send us your most extravagant Penn State-themed cakes. It’s no surprise that many Penn Staters went all out.

Submitted cakes covered everything from Beaver Stadium replicas to life-like Lion Shrines. We received cakes from birthdays, weddings, graduations, tailgates, and more.

Whether you decorate cakes for a living or simply got bored one afternoon, they had us drooling. We compiled some of our favorite submissions below:

Kim Cassano

These two lovebirds definitely showed their Penn State pride when they tied the knot. Cassano, who graduated in 2012, said this Lion Shrine look-a-like was the groom’s cake at her wedding, and it was sculpted using Rice Krispies.

Ryan Hartnett

This Beaver Stadium replica is nothing short of amazing. It has me longing for the good ol’ days when we could cheer on the Nittany Lions in person. Hartnett said this cake was made by Carlo’s Bakery (home of the legendary Cake Boss!), for a graduation party. The detail on this cake is impeccable—it even has an S-Zone.

R. Scott Young

This cake gives traditional wedding vows a competitive twist. Young says it was the Groom’s cake at his wedding, and the text was inspired by a tattoo he has on his ankle.

Carol Saller

Yet another exquisite Beaver Stadium creation. This version is complete with a Penn State team bus and a College GameDay setup. Despite the 2009 timestamp, this cake looks like it could be for this Saturday.

Saller has made many Penn State-themed cakes over the years. This version of her Beaver Stadium cake represents the Stripe Out game, and it even has an S-Zone. Not to mention the print job of the field really sends this cake over the top.

Jeff Gibson

This cake, made by Katie’s Kreations Bakery, is covered with Penn State references. It has parts of the Alma Mater written in blue icing, as well as a silhouette of Old Main on the opposite side. What Penn State fan wouldn’t love this blue and white wonder?

Maddy Martin

Martin, who graduated in 1992, created this masterpiece for a homecoming tailgate. The cake even has fake grass and cars to simulate a real tailgate. If we can’t stand in Beaver Stadium, we might as well eat it. Martin proves that you don’t need the Cake Boss to make a killer Beaver Stadium cake (sorry, Buddy).
