baseball cake, baseball cookies, chocolate mousse, double chocolate cake, homemade marshmallow fondant, hummingbird cake
Loved making this custom Poland Bulldogs cake for my favorite little Bulldog baseball player, Aiden!
His mother has ordered almost a dozen cakes from me over the years (here’s the last one I did for her older son), each one more fun than the last to create, and this one was no exception!
This 2-tiered, 6″-8″ cake is chocolate filled with chocolate mousse on the bottom (with chopped Hershey bars mixed into the mousse…YUM!) and hummingbird cake on the top. Both tiers are covered with homemade marshmallow fondant.
The bulldog is hand-cut from fondant using my Kopy Kake projector (love that thing!). Using a layering technique I learned about in a Craftsy class by Corrie’s Cakes, I was able to make the 2-D image look more 3-D.
Love this technique as it makes the image really POP out from the cake…putting it together is almost like creating a puzzle. Once I figured out the layering, details were drawn on using a food-safe marker and the pieces were “glued” together with watered down piping gel.
All of the other details and lettering are cut using cutters from fondant.
I also made a few baseball cookies to go along with the cake…
Happy Birthday, Aiden….hope you had a great one!!
