My DDs school asked me to do 8 basketball cakes for the sports banquet in 2 weeks. I've done ball cakes, but not sure what to ice these with (not those star tip stars!) or what to charge.
Anyone ever sold and transported more than one ball cake?
um, nevermind. I sold them all eight as centerpieces for the tables at the banquet, so I'll figure the transport thing out later (haven't upgraded from car to suv yet...but maybe by next week, lol).
I believe if you decide to use buttercream you can smooth it with a cheap papertowel - some of them have a texture similar to a basketball.
Thanks, we were just talking about how to get the texture.
Unfortunately the mother from the school who ordered the cakes let me know that NOW the school tells her they don't have the 'budget' for this for the banquet. She *might* go ahead and buy them herself at my (slightly) discounted price, but was asking what else I can do for less. I told her to tell me what, exactly IS the *budget*. If they have an $80 budget for 65 guests, I'm not their gal. I love the school, but no way am I donating eight 3-D cakes!
So I may not have to worry about it after all. ah well.
It did put a rush on the SUV upgrade, though, with DH, heh heh
