My daughter's team, the Jayhawks, was in the playoffs so I made them this basketball cake. I used a basic chocolate cake mix and used buttercream frosting for the filling. The bottom cake is 2 10" cakes and the tops is an 8". I used dowels and a cardboard round to stack them.
I frosted the whole cake with buttercream for a base and then made a homemade marshmallow fondant to use. I topped it with white and blue fondant and then shaped orange basketballs out of the same fondant.
I used tinted buttercream for the details on the basketballs and the writing and used fondant for the colored beads.
This basketball cake was very easy to make. My husband and I took two cake mixes and used a cake pan and flipped it upside down side by side each other and decorated it with light brown frosting. We then drew a half court on it.
We were able to get the basketball hoop and guys from a cake store, also we added candy basketballs(also from a cake store) around the edge of the cake. We also added little plastic basketballs to the corners of the cake for a little extra touch.
It was very fun and pretty easy to make and our 2 year old son just LOVED IT!!
I made this basketball cake for my cousin's birthday last week. He's such a huge fan of basketball. And I thought why don't I try to surprise him with my cake. And I did it and the result is there, he was surprised.
For the ball, I made it from the Wilton sports pan and the grass is using the flower tip. My cake was Red Velvet flavor with lemon cream cheese butter cream.
Everybody loved it and I was happy to give it to my cousin. Hope my cake can be one of your inspiration.
This NBA Spurs Cake is a 9 inch round cake pan made in double layers with frosting in the middle. I used a double batch of cake batter to make the cake larger. Basic buttercream frosting coats the cake.
The Spurs logo is an edible image framed in buttercream piping. Easy cake to decorate. A round tip was used to pipe the outside edges.
I made this homemade basketball court cake for an end of season basketball team party. I just used a rectangular pan, and then the Wilton ball pan for the basketball in the middle. It is all decorated with buttercream and a star tip. I ended up putting each players name and number on the cake too. They loved it!
