I have a request for a sheet cake with a basketball theme. Only catch is that she wants half decorated for a boy and the other side for a girl. Any suggestions on a design that will work.

what about using neon colors of pink & blue


because a lighter color would look baby-ish don't you think?


the stitches on a baseball could be each color


the bases could be both colors--or better yet--white bases as usual


on the brown 'pathway' between bases run a pink and a blue line instead of a white one


you could make one blue and one pink bat


you could pipe or make mitts in each color


(i would like it more uni*** rather than each being represented myself--but it ain't my cake ;)


but those are some thoughts

basket ball is worse


ok the lines on the floor--make one side pink and the other side blue


pipe a pink & blue net on the hoop


maybe harder but


draw two jerseys one with a waist and one straight down the sides pink & blue

Something like this maybe but stars half pink and other half blue, and maybe the ball normal colour.




How old are the kids the cake is for?


Or maybe a basketball court / half a court and get a girl basketball player and a boy basketball player figure to put on top.


Amazon have a full girls set including goals -

Great ideas, the kids are around 7-10 yrs. old I think.

What about something along these lines?  Forgive my pathetic little paint drawing, and made up names LOL!  You could add a woodgrain/wood plank type texturing or coloring to the main part of the floor.  The |-o things at each end are supposed to be the baskets.  And, somehow my center basketball looks more like a tennis ball...but you get the idea anyway! :)
