Everyone who hears these words of Mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. Matthew 7:24-25

Baseball Cake

This past weekend I was busy making a baseball themed, double birthday cake for Blake and Kyle. They wanted the Texas Rangers starting line-up depicted on the cake.

It was a pretty large cake – 16”X16” – which feeds 80 people. (Note to self: 16” square pan does not fit in your oven.) I ended up having to piece two cakes together to get it large enough. This was OK though, because the client wanted two different flavor cakes anyway.

For the baseball diamond, I used graham cracker crumbs mixed with a little brown sugar. The combination looked just like sand.

The players are tiny plastic figurines which I hand painted to look like the Rangers. I couldn’t get too detailed with the figures, but I was able to paint a “T” on their hats and their numbers on their backs.

I cut the flag shapes out of fondant, wrapped then ends around wooden skewers, and let them dry. Once they hardened, I piped words onto them with royal icing.
