Harley Davidson Cakes

Harley Davidson Cakes

Harley - Davidson motorcycles are an American icon. For some people, nothing else compares to a Harley. I have to admit, they are awesome bikes! If you or someone you love is crazy about Harleys, then why not make them a Harley - Davidson themed cake? It is sure to be a big hit, and something that will be talked about long after the celebration is over.

If you like the intro photo, you can buy it from Art.com, just scroll down the page and click on the link.

A Brief Harley History

Harley-Davidson was founded in Milwaukee, Wisconsin between 1901 and 1906. The first factory was actually built on Chestnut Street, which later became Juneau Avenue. Today, this location is the company's corporate headquarters. In the first year of actual production, Harley-Davidson produced about 50 motorcycles.

By 1920, Harley-Davidson had become the largest motorcycle manufacturer in the world. It survived the Great Depression, one of only two major American motorcycle manufacturers to do so. Harley-Davidson also came through a period of heavy Japanese competition, and survived a period of poor quality control which caused sales to drop. They got back on the right track, and went back to their roots of producing quality machines, and the customers returned. Today, Harley-Davidson offers tours of four of it's manufacturing sites.

The Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee, Wisconsin opened in 2008. It features exhibits of the history, culture, and vehicles, including the company's corporate archives. I don't know about you, but I think this would be a cool place to visit!

Harley Davidson Sheet Cakes

For sheet cakes, you can use the Harley Davidson Motorcycle Cake kit as you see in the Polaroid below, or you can use flat extreme and edible images.

For a large cookie cake, this plastic poptop is a perfect fit.

      When my brother married a few years ago, the wedding cake topper was a cute couple on a Harley. So unique, and so perfect, for the right couple.
