I made this Baseball glove cake for an end-of-season party for our co-ed softball team. It was a hit! (no pun intended).

First, I baked a ten inch layer of vanilla and a ten inch layer of chocolate cake. After cooling, I stacked them with butter cream between and refrigerated it. Then I carved it to look like a ball glove. I carved a ball shape from the scrap, then iced everything with butter cream and chocolate butter cream.

I rolled out some fondant (Wilton pre-made) and used an exacto knife to cut out our logo. I also covered the ball in a thin layer of fondant. Finally, I added laces and details.

Everyone loved it, and no one wanted to cut it. There was even a "fight" over who got to take the ball home!

I would definitely recommend taking step by step pictures when making cakes so you have references for when you have to do another of the same!

Coolest Baseball Field and Ball Cake 81

Homemade Baseball Field and Ball Cake

This Baseball Field and Ball Cake was make for a 10 year old that loves baseball. I started with a Wilton 12 inch round cake pan and the small Wilton Sports Ball pan. I cut the edge off on two sides of the round cake to make it look more like a baseball field.

I used a large spatula to smooth the "dirt" part of the field. I traced my lines for the baseball diamond on by using a toothpick. A grass tip was used for the grass and a round tip was used for the white line and bases.

After decorating the field, I cut a wedge out of one of the halves for the round ball so it would fit against the field cake. It fit like a puzzle.
I added a blue and red border because it was the team colors.

Tristan and his friends enjoyed the cake following a ballgame on his birthday.

My son wanted a Homemade Baseball Field Birthday Cake and this is where my imagination took it. I've made cakes in the past for my two sons and somehow I always try to incorporate lighting or noise effects. This one for example has functioning stadium lights and a lit up score board.

It's a white cake with green fondariffic icing and Graham crackers for the in-field. The dugouts were made from rice krispy treats dyed gray. The bleachers were made from kit-kat bars and the fans are gummy bears stuck to the bleachers with Karo syrup. This was four boxes of cake place together then trimmed to match the cut card board underneath. Then the green fondant was applied and cut for the infield and baselines.

Then the bases were just cut from white fondant. The kids loved being able to turn on the lights. They were torn between eating it or playing with it.

What did you use for the fencing. It looks like you used something from a train set for the lights and scoreboard - is this true?? If not, what was used.

Lights and scoreboard
by: Anonymous

I had to make the lights and scoreboard. Used two peices of wood, routered the inside to hide the wiring and drilled holes to stick just the bulbs thru. Ran the wire down the plastic tubes to a switched battery pack. the scoreboard was done the same but the face of the scoreboard I made on the computer and printed on transperent sticker paper and placed the lights were In the correct holes.

Both of my boys are involved with baseball and have had baseball cakes before, but this year my eldest wanted a baseball field.

To make this Baseball Field birthday cake, I used a 9" x 13" pan. I made my buttercream icing, keeping some of it white but coloring most of it either green or brown. My husband helped with the lines, and once these were sorted, we just filled it all in. It looked great and everyone loved it!

My great nephew wanted this Baseball Diamond birthday cake for his birthday so he asked me to make it.

It is a chocolate 14 inch round single layer with chocolate frosting to look like the dirt on the field. The decorations were made from fondant. The base balls were white fondant rolled into a ball and I used a edible writing pen to make the stitching on the balls.

Homemade Baseball Glove Cake

I made this baseball glove cake for my son's 3rd birthday party. He was crazy about baseball. I used a Wilton glove pan. I made a white cake with butter cream frosting. It was one of the easiest cakes I have ever made except for making the different colored browns/tans. I had to add red to brown to make the different shades. The cupcakes were very easy.
