I got an order for this sport cake from a friend of mine. It was a white cake with butter cream filling. I used my standard marshmallow fondant and butter cream icing.
I knew this cake would be a challenge because of the unique ball shapes and getting it all put together. The hardest part was the baseball because of the shape of the laces and actual stitching. I used royal icing to make the laces.
Structure was an issue as the basket ball was difficult to add on the cake. I ran sticks into the cake to help hold it on but what helped most was lots of icing as glue.
