This Kentucky Basketball cake was a great cake to make. All I had was a picture of the basketball court from Rupp Arena. The person who received this cake was THRILLED!!! He said he always wanted a cake done of the basketball court at Rupp. He did not want to cut this cake. We had to talk him into cutting it so everyone could have some cake. We took lots of pictures.
This was a chocolate cake covered with blue butter cream. I did not use fondant because the birthday boy did not like fondant. But you could cover this cake with blue fondant. To get the smooth look I used a Viva paper towel to smooth it out. The floor was done in fondant. the basketball goal and player were ordered from Amazon. The birthday boy took the plastic goal and players and stuck them on a shelf with the picture of the cake,
