Cool Homemade Soccer Ball Birthday Cake

My nephew is huge into soccer. The team he plays on is red, black and white. His mom wanted me to surprise him with a Soccer Ball Birthday Cake. He was so excited…

The cake was a dense white/chocolate marble cake – both base cake and ball. It was filled with chocolate hazelnut spread. I used a dowel to hold the ball in place. It took about 4 hours to decorate – since each pentagon and hexagon had to be individually cut with a tracer. I used the Wilton ball pan – very clear instruction.

It was my first time making a 2 tiered cake – it wasn’t as scary as I thought. Now my soon to be 3 year old wants a red and black soccer cake for his birthday.
