Hi Everyone. I hope you have as much fun making this baseball field birthday cake. But even more fun than making the cake was watching the boys from my son’s baseball team choose which candle on the cake represented them. I placed the candles as close as possible to the field positions, with an extra candle for the batter and a runner at second to get 11 candles.
This cake is actually easier than it looks and you begin with a simple round cake.
Next, you cut off two sections of the cake, like this:
For the next step you will want to ice smooth the infield dirt. I use a light brown buttercream icing for my infield dirt color. As an alternative, that looks amazing, you can use brown sugar for the dirt. If you are going to use brown sugar, first use a buttercream close in color to the brown sugar. This will help the brown sugar stick to the cake.
Next, use a star tip to add the grass to the outfield and the sides of the cake. I guess, technically the sides should be the color of dirt, but I think it looks more finished with the green icing on the sides. Again, I use a buttercream icing.
Add white bases, home place, pitchers rubber, and foul lines. Next place candles at the fielding positions and add a decorative baseball or two. I used red icing to pipe the words onto a cake board.
I hope you love this cake as much as we do. How to plan a perfect outdoor baseball party post is coming soon!
