Base Loaded!

Megan contacted us a few months back about doing a cake for her son’s third birthday. She wanted a baseball theme vanilla cake with buttercream to feed 30.

We began by baking two 10″ round cakes and a half of a ball pan. We stacked the two 10″ cakes on top of each other and iced with buttercream. We piped the grass on top of the cake as well as the bottom border. We covered the ball with buttercream, piped the red laces and placed on top of the grass. The night before, we created the “3” and “HARGIS” with royal icing and let it harden overnight. We leaned the “3” up against the baseball and “HARGIS” up against the side of the cake. Finally, we piped Happy Birthday above Hargis’s name in white buttercream.

Megan, thank you so much for allowing us to be a part of his fun day. We hope Hargis has the best birthday ever!

    how did you create the base ball field board for the Bases Loaded cake?

      We used white ribbon for the lines and cut the plates out of cardstock paper. We attached them to the cake board covered in paper, wrapped it all with cellophane and placed the cake on top before decorating.
