I am the owner and operator of Hobos Hut a Shaved Ice or New Orleans Sno Ball Business.  Recently a young gentleman contacted me wanting to know if I would make his son (10 yrs) a Birthday Cake made from or out of Sno Balls. He also wanted it to be in the shape of a tennis racket with some tennis balls also. Help please. He said it means everything to his son to have this please Cake Experts throw me some lifelines here.

I am not sure how you would keep it from melting.

I would do SIMPLE version like with cupcakes. Make a "platter" out of cardboard. Draw on a tennis racket (shape) and "fill in" with snowballs (in cups, I assume). Accent with strips of licorice to make the "strings".  Make a few snowballs (in cups) as tennis balls, again place a few curved licorice on it to make the curved lines.


If you do the lay out and drawing first, add the empty cups, and are "ready" with licorice strings, I think you can assemble quickly and get the effect you want.

Not the prettiest example, but you get the idea....
