I’ve made a birthday cake for this darling boy in my son’s class for the past few years. The 13-yr-old is really amazing at baseball and basketball (to name only 2 of the sports at which he excels…he is really very talented) and a few years ago I did this Cavaliers basketball cake for his birthday. This past year he was really into the NY Yankees, so his mom ordered a personalised jersey cake and cookies.
The cake is a half-sheet cookies and cream cake cut to look like a jersey with a pattern similar to this jersey cake. I frosted it in vanilla buttercream and added stripes cut from blue homemade fondant. I used letter cutters to cut out the name and birthday wish; the number 3 and the NY Yankees logo were hand-cut from blue fondant.
The baseball cookies were iced with white Royal icing with red lacing piped on for detail.
Happy 13th birthday, Anthony….I really enjoyed making your birthday treats again this year!
