This was one of the most complicated and detail oriented baseball birthday cakes I ever had to do. With weeks of research and preparation I think it came out great!
The cake comprised of several large round cakes that I carved out the center "stadium". The rolled fondant was cut out in pieces and decorated with much detail. As a former New Yorker and lifetime Yankee fan it was a great honor and privilege to create this cake for a very satisfied client.
My husband made this cake for our son’s 10th birthday. Our son is a big Balitmor O’ fan. He loves baseball so he asked his dad to make him a jersey cake. He used the Wiltons t-shirt pan which we got off e-bay. He used white frosting for the whole cake then trimmed it with Wiltons black and orange icing tubes.
The buttons, ball and bat are made out of fondant. The bat was colored with Wiltons brown gel mixed with water and blotted on with a paper towel. The lacing on the ball was made with red icing. The holes in the buttons were made using a tooth pick.
He said it was a very simple cake to make. Hope this will help others in making their baseball birthday cakes!
