This Baseball Birthday Cake was made for my nephew for his 3rd birthday. He loves baseball. This was kind of a good mistake cake. What I mean by that is I had an entire different vision then while making I realized I baked the wrong size and shape, I planned square. So I made a double bottom layer (2 cakes each) then cut a small part of the side off and joined them together to make like the shape of the number 8.
Then I made single layer cakes for the top tier. I colored the fondant a blue and a red for the two tiers. Made the baseballs out of fondant, and red icing. The field is made out of green fondant, made to the shape of the field then cut out little white bases. The dirt is brown sugar.
The baseball bat is made out of rice crispy treats and covered with a colored brown fondant. There are fruity flavored twizzlers on the bottom and top tiers to cover a few mistakes. I’m just learning but I always know how to cover a mistake with decoration.
My friend is a huge Dodgers and Raiders fan so for his birthday I wanted to make him a special Baseball Cap cake. He kind of mentioned that he wanted a Dodgers hat cake, so I set out to figure out how to make one. I looked on this site for some clever ideas-which of course I found.
To make this cake I used the sport ball Wilton cake pans for the cap and a square pan to make the bill. I cut the square cake in half to make it a little flatter and then I carved it to be shaped like a bill. I made marshmallow fondant and dyed it dodger blue and raider black to cover the two cakes. I also left some white to cut out the team symbols.
It turned out really well-aside from the teams that he choose!
I made this cake for my son's birthday. The baseball was baked in Wilton's ball pan, then covered in butter cream first, then fondant, the stitching is piped on with Wilton's red tube icing. I 'glued' the cake to a 6" cake board, which I covered in green fondant first, by using some butter cream.
The bottom of the homemade baseball birthday cake is two 10" rounds, covered in butter cream and then fondant, I placed dowels in the bottom cake before placing the ball on top. All the cutouts are fondant, except the stars, those I made out of gumpaste.
This Baseball Birthday Cake is a cake I did for my nephew. This is a half yellow-layer baseball cake setting on top of a half sheet cake. The sheet cake was half yellow-layer and half chocolate-layer.
This took a total of 3 boxes of cake mix with pudding already in the mix. The name was stenciled and the entire cake was star tipped with exception of the red on the baseball. Austin thoroughly enjoyed his cake.
