What kind of cake do you make for a little boy that loves baseball? You could make a big baseball or a baseball bat. The hat of their favorite team or a baseball diamond, or how about all of that. I was going to make a baseball glove too, but ran out of time.
The cake is a 10 inch square white sour cream cake with a chocolate filling. The hat is half of a sports ball pan and a 6 inch put together(the bill of the hat was some fondant on the cardboard to give it more of a rounded shape (the cardboard underneath is the full shape of the hat to help support it). The bat is fondant formed around a dowel to help hold it's shape. And the ball is made of rice crispies that I squished into a ball and covered with chocolate and then fondant, which was then painted. And it was placed on a 20 inch wooden board.
Happy Birthday Tyler!
