Golf Ball Cake

I made this Golf Ball cake for my golf enthusiast husband’s birthday.

I used the Wilton sports ball pan and a 10×10 square pan. I used white cake mixes and followed the instructions for baking.

I then used white frosting for the ball, I let it sit for a few hours to harden a little before I put the dimples in the ball, it made it a little easier to add the dimples.

I tinted frosting green and then frosted the sides of the square cake smooth. I set the ball cake on top of the square cake and then using tip #233 I frosted the rest of the cake to look like grass. I also frosted around the bottom of the square cake where it touched the platter.

HUGE hit, as most of the family are into golf too!

  1. I just used the handle end of a wooden spoon, just don’t press too hard or it will go all the way to the cake and you’ll be able to see cake.

  2. I have been looking at many cakes trying to find what would be easy and fun for a grooms cake and this is what my fiance has been going on about. Thank you. It will be great.

  3. Just wanted to say Great Job!

    I was looking for a golf theme cake for my Dad this year. Last year I made him a golf course cake so I wanted to try something different. Think I’ll use your idea.

    Thanks again!

  4. My two visiting grandchildren (5 & 3) wanted to make a special cake for grandpop’s birthday: “How about a golf cake?!” Yikes…I went right to the internet for ideas. Your cake looks just perfect. I will purchase the Wilton sports pan at Michael’s and we’ll have a fun day preparing for the “surprise party”…”Shh, don’t tell grandpop!”

  5. hi, can you tell me step by step how you did this, was it a sponge cake? how did you make the frosting and how did you make it look like grass? how did you make the ball?

  6. That must have been very time consuming to add all the dimples… I wonder if there is an easier way? Great cake by the way. I am making one for a wedding shower and was looking for ideas, yours is the top of the list!

  7. I just wanted to say great job on this cake. I’ve been trying to find a golf ball cake for ages, for my dads 50th. He loved it thanks!
