My mom and I made these cakes for her friend's daughter. They had hundreds of extra servings of cake, but we couldn't talk them down. If it could go wrong, it did go wrong with these monsters, but by going with plan B and sometimes plan C, we managed to pull it together. Glad to be done with that favor! Chocolate cake, filled and covered with chocolate ganache and chocolate fondant. Gumpaste figures. Basketball on top made with a sports ball pan, fondant strips, and dots of buttercream.
