Sports Cakes

 This entire post is dedicated to all of the fun sports cakes I have made over the past few years. My absolute favorite is this incredible baseball cake that I got to create this past week. I just fell in love with it. The client sent me a picture of what she wanted so this is entirely not my design or idea, but I still love, love, love it. Everything is completely edible...even the baseball. I sponge painted on food coloring to give it that dirty/antique look. Such a cool design.

 This football cake was created for a little boy who plays football for a local school team...the Warriors. What kid doesn't want his jersey and team logo on a cake. When his mom asked him what he wanted, he said "I don't care as long as it is so cool all the other boys on the team want one". Such a smart boy!!!

This Mississippi State Cowbell Cake was huge. The picture just does not do it justice. It was massive and stood over two foot tall. My husband is a huge MSU fan so this was the cake I created for him this year. Simple and sweet with four layers of yummy strawberry and lemon cake!!!!!

Well...when you live in Birmingham, AL and make cakes, you make a lot of Alabama Cakes!! This is one of my favorite designs with the houndstooth pattern cut out in fondant and giant fondant A on top. Roll Tide!!!

These adorable Alabama cupcakes would steal the show at any tailgating party.  

What do you do when you can't decide what team you want represented on your cake....or what sport....you get them all together in a Stealers football cake and New York Yankees baseball cupcakes!!! I loved creating this cake. It turned out perfect!

New York Yankees Cupcakes

Check out the perfectly shaped soccer ball cake. Those little shapes were placed individually to give it a very realistic look. 

And here is a fun little football cake for a family dinner. Every birthday deserves a great cake...even if it is just a small family dinner. 

This was actually my very first sculpted football cake. 

This Mississippi State University Football Helmet Cake actually made it on the coaches facebook page as it was taken to the game for the birthday celebration. I thought that was pretty awesome.

Big sister to the little boy who received the football helmet got this awesomely adorable Mississippi State University Cheerleading Cake. 

And another Alabama Cake. Those Alabama folks really like cake!

Here is a larger version of the Soccer Cake.

I created this simple little cake for my son's soccer team when it was our night to bring snack for the game. No apple wedges here...we gotta get all the sugar in we can...lol.

Auburn University Groom's Cake with fondant tiger bride and groom. Check out that incredible marble on the top ledges of the Auburn sign...that is some great detailing if I do say so myself.

Okay, okay...laser tag isn't exactly a sport, but I thought if you liked all the others on this post you would love this one.
