Ahead of time I printed an edible image and applied it to rolled fondant with clear vanilla extract and allowed it to dry for at least a week. I then attached lollipop sticks to the back of the baseball banner with royal icing and allowed them to dry for several days. The orange banners are also rolled fondant with lollipop sticks attached with royal icing.
I baked a 12 inch square cake for this Baseball Birthday Cake. I crumb coated the entire cake with white buttercream icing. I applied a second smooth coat of white buttercream to the sides of the cake. I used a toothpick and clean ruler to gently mark lines on the top of the cake to indicate the baseball field. I filled in the grassy areas with green buttercream, piped with a #18 star tip. The sand is a combination of crushed graham cracker crumbs and brown sugar.
The bases are rolled fondant. Finally, I piped birthday greetings on the side of the cake.
This was my first cake creation I ever made. It was fairly simple. I took a box of cake from the store and followed the direction on the box. I emptied half the batter in a Pyrex bowl (made for oven) half way and baked it at 350 degrees until done. I let it cool for a whole day. I use white icing from a can and spread it. I used red M&M for the lace to make a baseball effect.
For the cupcakes I pour the rest of the batter in cupcake tin. Iced then with the same icing and used licorice for the lace effect.
My boys ages 9 and 3 have birthdays within a week of each other. They decided they wanted to have a baseball party this year. So we rented a field to play on, the invitations were written on balls for them to hand out to their friends.
The cake was a baseball birthday cake. I printed a baseball field guide online. I used brown sugar for the dirt. I used two half sheet pans for the base and a half ball cake pan for the ball itself. And added peanuts just for creativity!
We used basic square pan for the Baseball Birthday Cake. Then we added green food coloring and white frosting for whole cake.We purchased small bag of Popsicle sticks glued them together for the bleachers and the stands. We used writing frosting for lines between bases and cut marshmallows for bases.Purchased baseball guys from supermarket bakery.
