Coolest Dean's St. Louis Cardinals Birthday Cake 16
(Van Buren, Arkansas, USA)
Homemade Dean's St. Louis Cardinals Birthday Cake
I used the retired Wilton baseball glove cake pan. I also used a small oven proof glass bowl. I used 1 cake mix. I made 2 small cakes in the glass bowl 1st, then used the rest of the mix in the glove pan.
After cooked, let cool completely. I had to trim the cakes from the small glass bowl so they would fit together and look like a ball. I iced the glove in buttercream in brown, blue and copper. After that was finished, I had 1/2 of the 'ball' upside down and iced in white buttercream. I let it dry a bit and went over it with a Viva paper towel. Then I placed it in the center of the glove. I iced the top and added the 2nd ball 1/2. I iced it in white and let dry again then went over with the Viva towel again.
I also did the word CARDINALS with white candy melts. I did the stitches with red pull apart Twizzlers and I added 2 skewers through the ball into the cake board. Then I added the Cardinal on the ball with a toothpick. I made it out of fondant.
My husband started his own men's softball team. They won their first scrimmage game so it prompted me to make the team a softball cake to enjoy during their celebration. It turned out to be a huge hit.
I could've used the Wilton sports ball pan but I wanted to use something different and not so big. So I bought a packet of "snowballs" (pink cream filled cakes). I started by icing the cake green then using brown to draw the glove. Then I set the snowball on the glove and covered it with white icing using star tip. The smaller the star tip the better it looks. Then I proceeded on to the bases pretty simple.
One tip I love to share is if you add 1 cup of pudding to the batter it will make your cake super moist. (if you buy the little containers that come in 6 packets, use two containers.)
I made this homemade Red Sox cake for my 2 grandson's birthdays & they loved it! I never decorated a cake before so I surfed the internet & came to your site to get ideas. I saw a playing field cake & tried to replicate it.
I used an over-sized round cake pan, 2 cake mixes, 3 cans of chocolate frosting & green sprinkles for the grass. For the balls I decided to make Cool Whip cupcakes -- 1 Chocolate cake mix, 1 container of cool whip & red gel for threads. Cut a hole in the center of the cupcake fill & frost with Cool Whip - decorate & refrigerate.
This Soft Ball End of League cake is a cake I made for a local girl's soft ball team.
The Ball is made of cake pop covered in fondant. The glove is a 2 layer 10" cake I sculpted into a glove covered in chocolate fondant. For the base I made a 16" square and just decorated with butter cream and then finally made little chocolate ball caps with each girl's initial on the bill.
I am self taught and just love creating different cakes and learn something new every time I do.
I made this Red Sox Birthday Cake for my nephew. I used a small square pan and crumb coated it with buttercreme and then covered it with fondant. I used the round ball pan and used one half of it for the hat, and crumb coated it and covered it with fondant.
The ball is all fondant with buttercreme stitching and buttercreme grass around the bottom. I piped out his name on the back of the hat like his own hat. He loved it.
