Portfolio: Soccer Birthday Cake

I love cakes with 3D elements and this one was no exception. Ben is the older brother of Conner, who's first birthday cake I did back in October. Ben LOVES soccer and he's a really great player too. His mom and I agreed that a soccer cake would be perfect for him, especially since most of his team mates were attending the party. I don't have a Wilton Wonder Mold yet, so the ball itself is actually hand carved from two 6" round layers. The rest is sheet cake. Ben likes white cake like his little brother, and I iced this one also with American buttercream. The birthday boy was ecstatic and everyone loved it. Score one for Kelly!

You can't see it in the picture, but all around the sides are "Go Team!" and"Yay Bandits!" and other fun cheers.

Happy Baking,
