This Spring there was a special incentive for the boys on my oldest son’s travel baseball team. As a surprise, I had baked and decorated a cake for the first boy to hit a home run. Pretty soon, all the boys were encouraging each other to hit home runs to get one of my cakes. Pretty awesome!
The first was a butter cake with vanilla icing. The stitching is red sparkling gel hand-piped on. The stars are blue candy melts with his uniform number and name piped on in white sparkling gel frosting. Homerun! at the top and the date he hit it at the bottom are piped on using blue sparkling gel frosting.
All of the cakes followed this format – the only difference being the type of cake. They got to chose the flavor of cake they wanted. I was thrilled to have to make four cakes this year.
