I have a cake request (Free Cakes for Kids) and the request is for a Mickey Mantle baseball cake. I searched the galleries and all I came up with were Mickey Mouse baseball cakes.

I don't have an edible image printer or airbrush machine. I need some ideas on how to decorate a cake for this request.

Help me please!!! Thanks, Carol

When do you need it?

Depending on how much time, money and energy you want to put into this cake..... You could do a replica of the back of a NY Yankees "jersey" (white with stripes) with his number? He was 7. You could add a 3D cap with the famous interlocking NY.

I have to deliver it next Friday - October 16th.

I am thinking of doing color flow and make a silhouette of a baseball player and put his team number on it. I can make some smaller baseballs and bats with the color flow too.

Since its a free cake I don't want to spend alot of time on it.

Thanks for your reply!

cblupe, that sounds like a great idea.

I just googled MM. He was HANDSOME! The guy that played him in 61(?) is darn near a ringer!
