This cake was for a friend’s son. They are HUGE Cardinals fans and Cole had a Cardinals birthday party.
The cake was a single layer sheet cake with a baseball diamond drawn out on it. The paths were made of granulated brown sugar – my daughter’s idea. The baseball is a separate cake, piped with stars and “signed” with a replica of Cole’s favorite player’s signature. The “backfield fence” behind the large baseball was actually constructed to provide extra support for the ball itself.
The scoreboard is a sugar cookie and the Cardinals logo is made of hand-painted fondant. Sparkler candles were used to create a “fireworks” display.
