This Great Cake Contest entry was submitted by wolfiemw from Boothwyn, Pennsylvania: My son is really into wrestling but it's really hard to find party supplies. So we decided to make our own wrestling ring as decoration for his cake.
Put an 8x8 cake on top of an iced 1/2 sheet cake and cover it with icing. I used color icing on the sides of the top cake for the sides of the ring.
insert the chocolate sticks (FYI- if you'll be somewhere warm use something that won't melt like pretzel rods or long Tootsie Rolls) - in the 4 corners of the top cake. Use icing to attach the licorice whips around the 4 corners and make 3 separate ropes.
use the Tootsie Rolls with icing to make the corner stairs. you can also use them as a base for a table with a chocolate bar laid on top.
we then propped up micro sized wrestlers on the cake to look like a match was happening
