Sports Cake

This sports cake was for my youngest son's 2nd birthday. He is a HUGE sports lover so this seemed rather appropriate for him.

This one took a really long time to make, especially with all the fine detail to the bat and balls on the top of the cake. Since they were small, they were a little hard to work with.

All of them are made out of fondant, even all of the laces on the balls. The stars were made with a cookie cutter as well as the bat and football on the side of the cake. The writing on the bat is made with a food coloring pen.

The top layer had vanilla frosting and the bottom had chocolate. Whenever you are using white fondant, you will need to use a light colored frosting so that it doesn't show through the fondant.
