I made this baseball cake for my husband for Father's Day this year! He plays baseball and loves our English bulldog Rocco, which was this cakes inspiration!

I made the baseball cake using a Wilton ball cake pan. The cake itself was a triple chocolate fudge cake. I then covered it in homemade buttercream frosting followed by homemade marshmallow fondant. (I would definitely recommend using Marshmallow Fondant! It tastes so much better than store bought, and is a lot easier to work with!) Finally I added the baseball details by piping on red colored buttercream frosting.

The miniature figurines of my husband and our dog are made out of more homemade marshmallow fondant that I colored with Wilton icing coloring. I added some personal details such as their names and player numbers on the backs of their jerseys also using fondant.

I wish I had had a little more time to get really creative, but I think it turned out cute! It was a big hit with my husband!

I made this baseball cake for my nephew's 2nd birthday. I baked 2 10" square sheet cakes and leveled them each to about 1 1/2". I also used Wilton's ball pan for the baseball on top. I did not use dowels or supports to support the baseball, although I should have.

I purchased fondant online from Satin Ice (pre-colored). I tried to color white fondant but I wasn't able to get a deep enough green. It was worth the price.....The baselines are brown sugar on top of a thin layer of buttercream, and the bases are gumpaste.

I made the buttercream from scratch, and if you want a bright white, make sure you use all vegetable shortening. My piping skills aren't the best, so I purchased sugar letters and baseball gloves for the size of the cake. I used a #16 star tip for the baseball, and red decorating gel for the stitches.

The cake was actually pretty simple, and was my first attempt at anything other than a round layered cake.

So my little nephew is a crazy sports fan. I personally do not have any kids but somehow I have become the family cake maker. So when my now 7 year old nephew looked at me and asked me to "please..oh please make him a baseball cake..all round just like a real ball" ..what could I do but make a cake?

I used 2 boxes of mix and added my own flavor and strawberry preserves for an extra boost. I used homemade buttercream frosting as a foundation for the fondant laid on top.

The rope ties are made with hand rolled fondant and red food coloring. It was rather easy...you can get a fully round or half round ball pan at Michael's.

So needless to say my cake was a success and a even better a hit. My nephew was so happy - Priceless.

This Baseball cake is my first cake that I have decorated and it was so easy.

I made a regular sheet cake in a 9x12 pan. I flipped it cut it flat. I covered the cake with white frosting then I cut out a shape for the diamond with a knife. Frosted the green with a star tip so it looked a little more grass like but was quick.

Then I added some chocolate chips to the white frosting for dirt. Smooted on that to make a diamond. I bought some over priced men and added them to the cake. The little baseballs on the side are those sugar candies you can buy at cake stores.

The second time I made this cake I added some brown sugar to the top of the dirt and it looked even a touch better.

I am going to make your baseball design for my grandaughter's 5th birthday party..

She has allergies So I will be making Glutten free brownie mix for the base making it into cake type brownies.. I was just going to use dark brown food coloring for the dirt.. I still will but I love the idea of brown sugar.. Others said use Graham crackers which is a very good idea but I couldn't , because as I said her allergies...
So Thank you for sharing your ideas with me. I will be using flat square gum for the bases and of course green frosting for the grass. I may use coconut I don't know yet.. I will be making it Saturday.
