A little word play…batter…cake…baseball?
OK, enough humor. I’m trying to catch up.
Sweet friend’s little girl wanted a baseball cake…KC Royals, of course. So the challenge was to come up with something baseballish and not too boyish.
The birthday girl’s favorite cake online was this:
But not blue!
So, I came up with the top cake. And, as always, learned some new techniques and some new “Don’ts”.
It’s covered in buttercream and the rest is fondant/gumpaste. The buttons were easy and took about 10 seconds. Yes, I have a mold! Cheating? Nope. Cause I had to dedicate a bit more time to meticulously cutting out the “Royals” lettering. I just did one and prayed that it wouldn’t fall apart while applying to the cake. I let it dry a bit then ever-so-carefully glued it on. Whew!!!
The crown was a little easier to put together but again the cutting out part took FOREVER.
I got the idea for the cake plate on, of course, Pinterest. I just covered a wood plate with fool safe paper then hot glued the baseballs to the bottom. God bless the inventor of the hot glue gun!
And when I delivered the cake, the sweet mommy exclaimed “OH you got a “Silhouette”??!!
“Oh kinda like a Cricut but more versatile!”
I looked at her menacingly and asked, “You have ONE? That will cut out the lettering EXACTLY like the logo??!!!!”
She took a couple of steps back and answered, “Well yeah. And the crown logo too. If I had known…”
