Texas Ranger Baseball Hat Birthday Cake

Texas Ranger Baseball Hat Birthday Cake

My father is a big Texas Ranger Baseball fan so I decided to make him a baseball hat birthday cake for his birthday.

This turned out to be a very simple cake, I took two 8 inch round cakes and sculpted very slightly to make the shape of the hat, then covered it in fondant. I used my fondant embossing tool to make the stitching, used two different icing tips to make the sweat holes and made a template for the T and the bill of the hat.

For the bill I mixed fondant and gumpaste and cut it out in the shape to fit the cake and attached it with a little bit of clear vanilla. I also added a couple of cupcakes decorated like baseballs to top it off. He was excited to see how real it looked.

Coolest Baseball Sports Bag Cake 47

Homemade Baseball Sports Bag Cake

Homemade Baseball Sports Bag Cake

This Vanilla cake was sculpted from a single layer 12x18 sheet pan cut in half and then stacked. The baseball sports bag cake is iced with buttercream icing and then a layer of white chocolate fondant is laid over the buttercream.

The wrinkles in the bag were pressed into the fondant by pushing the fondant into the buttercream under it. The Ball, glove and bat were sculpted from a mixture of white chocolate and corn syrup. The ball and bat were then covered with fondant.

The details were pushed through a clay gun and glued onto the cake with piping gel. Thinned green buttercream was then spread onto the board and sponged for texture. The cake was then airbrushed to add shadows. That's All!

Coolest Baseball Mascot Cake 44

Baseball Mascot Cake

Baseball Mascot Cake

I made this baseball mascot cake for a friend's birthday party. She is really into baseball so I figured the mascot for her home team would be perfect. Thus the Philly fanatic cake was born.

I made this cake by baking two 9" round pans and one small Pyrex bowl( yes this can go in your oven). I then shaved the cakes down to form an octogon shape. I covered this guy with homemade buttercream using the Wilton star tip and the pull out option to make his fur.

He was a real success at the party and I think he turned out great!

Coolest Baseball Cake Idea 85

Homemade  Baseball Cake Idea

Homemade Baseball Cake Idea

I used a 9x13 pan to bake the bottom of the Baseball Cake Idea, and then used a Wilton icing tip to cover it to look like grass. I then used half of a Wilton ball pan to make the baseball on top of the grass. I iced it using a star tip with white icing, and I used red M&M's to make the laces on the baseball.

My 5 year old loved it!

I made this baseball jersey cake for my son's 10th birthday because he plays for the Braves Little league.

I used a Wilton jersey cake pan. I decorated it with fondant and blue icing. I made Braves stencil and cut out red fondant for the logo. It was a smash hit.
