Another sports cake for a great kid! I’ve made birthday cakes for this sweet boy for many years now. They’re always sports-themed and just keep getting bigger and more fun!
Anthony’s mom asked for a 2-tiered vintage baseball-themed cake with a worn, vintage look. The only way to really do that without an airbrush (which I don’t own….yet) was to cover it in fondant and creatively brush on the “dirt” using cocoa powder and a small brush (cocoa powder…who knew? worked great!).
The base 9″ tier is a 2-layer chocolate cake with mocha filling and the 6″ tier is Italian cream cake with almond buttercream filling.
The cakes are iced with vanilla buttercream and then covered with homemade marshmallow fondant. The details are a combo of fondant, red edible pen (small stitching on baseball), and cocoa powder.
Loved the simple, vintage, worn look of this cake and it was so fun to make…
Happy 14th birthday, Anthony! Keep being a great kid!
