Homemade Basketball Jersey And Ball Birthday Cake
This Basketball Jersey And Ball Birthday Cake was for my son on his 11th birthday. It was a total of 4 cakes. Chocolate, triple chocolate, strawberry, and funfetti.
I baked two cakes in a 13x9 cookie sheet for the base of the cake. After baking those cakes, I let them cool then put both cakes side by side to make one whole flat base. I put blue icing on the bottom to color the base of the cake. Then another cake was baked in a 13x9 regular cake pan for the jersey.
After cake was baked I let the cake cool then I carved the cake into the shape of a jersey. I placed the jersey on the base on the cake. Next another cake was baked in a large stainless steel bowl to make the basketball. That cake had to bake a little longer due to the cake being pretty deep. This cake was baked 1 hr 15 minutes to 1 hr 35 minutes. Just keep checking it.
After cake was baked, the cake was placed on the other side of the base of the cake. Then I put icing on the jersey I decorated it green, since my son likes the team Boston Celtics and put my son's name on the jersey and the number 11 for his age. I decorated the ball as a basketball.
This was a great cake and fed A LOT of people. Everyone enjoyed it because they could get 2 flavors in one. GREAT cake!
Comments for Coolest Basketball Jersey And Ball Birthday Cake 25
When I asked my grandson what he wanted for his 8th birthday cake, he responded “a basketball cake”. “Basketball, I can do that I replied.”
“Wait Nana, let me tell you exactly what I want” and he did. He went on to say that he wanted a gym floor, two posts with hoops, a scoreboard which would read, “Wolves 25 v, Rattlers 17”. He also wanted a picture of him playing basketball.
Pretty tall order, but what he wants is what Nana gives him. I drew lines on a white cake board and then used brown craft paint to make the gym floor. I ordered the posts and hoops on line.
I scanned and printed a picture of him playing and trimmed the picture and glued it to a piece of fondant. I added a small basketball which I cut off a basketball stick. That was the top of the cake.
The score board is made of fondant. I colored fondant, black and red and orange for basketballs. I printed Happy Birthday message on computer
What you will need: 1/2 block of white fondant food coloring - black, red and orange 2 sheet cake pans 2 boxes of cake mix ½ lb of fresh strawberries 1 tub of Wilton butter cream icing 1 two inch cutout for scoreboard 1 two inch circular cutout for basketballs Number cutouts for scoreboard
He loved the cake, can’t wait to see what he will want for his 9th birthday.
