I made this Baseball Birthday Cake for my boyfriend for his 24th birthday party. Such a great way to capture a true baseball lovers interest! I stacked two cakes for the lower tier. I made them magic cakes by separating the cake mixture into 4 separate bowls and adding food coloring to each bowl individually. Then the mixtures got poured in layer by layer until the cake pan has enough mixture. Then take a tooth pick and swirl the colors together a bit, letting them run into one another. This gives the cake some exciting rainbow colors, and really impresses the birthday boy or girl!
The baseball was made by using the Wilton sphere mold. I used butter-cream on the whole cake. A star tip to make the baseball white, and a flat tip to create the red threading. The grass was made by using two different green colors and making waves(grass blades) with a knife. To simulate dirt I used graham cracker crumbs. I used two wooden kebab skewers for the support to keep the ball secure.
So much fun to make, and definitely a crowd pleaser.
I made this baseball birthday cake for my son's baseball themed 7th birthday. I used a 14" round pan and two cake mixes. The infield dirt is made out of brown sugar (yum!). I put a little extra sugar on the pitcher's mound, so that it was raised up a little. The grass is made with Wilton tip #233.
I alternated dark and light green butter cream frosting for the outfield, to give it that custom mowed look. The bases were made out of mini marshmallows. I thought about using white gumballs, but the size wasn't quite right.
For the foul posts, I used pretzel rods dipped in melted yellow colored chocolate drops. I attached them to the side of the cake with extra green frosting. I also used graham crackers for the back wall, and wrote distances out of frosting. I finished off the bottom edge of the cake with more grass (tip #233).
My son loved his cake! It was relatively easy to make, and made a huge wow factor!
I made this Baseball Cake for my husband's 70th birthday as he is a big Ray's fan. The cake was half chocolate and half yellow baked in a 14 inch square pan and the hat on top was chocolate cake baked in half a Wilton ball pan.
The big cake was frosted in butter cream frosting in white, then I drew the baseline with a ruler and used light brown sanding sugar to fill in the baseline. I then used green butter cream frosting and 233 tip to make the grass for the rest of the ball field. I made the bases out of fondant. Then I frosted the round ball cake with a little buttercream frosting then covered with fondant and made the brim of the cap from fondant. I then cut out the TB from fondant and attached to the cap with a small amount of water. I used candles to spell out Happy Birthday and 70.
My husband was so delighted with the way the cake came out.
My son loves playing baseball so I decided to throw him a Phillies baseball birthday party. I made tickets on the computer and used them as invitations. I already had plans to make baseball cookies however I needed a baseball bat cake idea.
I made the cake in a 11x5 pan. I cut the sides of the cake near the handle. For the handle of the bat I used mini powder donuts and for the end of the handle I used a regular size plain donut and just put icing on it. Even though milk chocolate icing would have been better for the color of the bat, the icing I used (Cream cheese) is my son's favorite so I had to go with his favourite.
