Hello everyone, I have an order for a baseball cake to feed 40 people. icon_surprised.gif Luckily they want it one sided (like baseball in the grass). They want the whole cake to be the baseball (no sheet cake underneath). Where do I start? Do I bake several cakes the same diameter and carve from there? I would appreciate any ideas.... thanks icon_sad.gif

you could bake in a bowl, although i dont know how you figure the servings - id figure out the nearest size of a round and work on that. less waste, if you have a big enough bowl!

I did a golf ball like this. I bake a two layer 8" and filled it as usual. Then kind of carve the top layer rounded. Frosted and decorated. I'm at work SSSHHHH, LOL! or I would try to post a pic. HTH

I have done this at work before and we baked a couple of rounds in graduating sizes, (ex. 10" & 9") and also the soccor ball pan. stacked them up and carved it that way, then filled and iced it. hope this helps.
