Baking Date: May 10, 2014
As is my custom for the kids on my oldest son’s baseball team, I make a home run cake when they hit one. Recently, there were four hit in less than a week — and one of them was a grand slam.
I am now finally caught up on all the cakes, after a business trip (work continues to get in the way of all my baking — sheez!). This last cake was for a first time home run hitter.
He asked for vanilla cake. I frosted it with vanilla frosting, added the seams of the baseball with red sparkle gel frosting, and the word home run and the date he hit it in blue sparkle gel frosting. His name is made from red star-shaped candy melts, with his name written on in white sparkle gel frosting. The grass is vanilla frosting dyed green, using a Wilton Tip #233 to pipe it around the base of the baseball.
His mom said he was so excited about getting the cake. And I think his smile says it all:
Way to go Brett!
