Basketball cake for the basketball team I coached this season. We practiced outside so I wanted to make it look used and dirty. Top half is cake and the bottom half is styrofoam, since I didn't need that much cake and didn't want to figure out how to make a perfect sphere. The board is fondant covered and then painted. One of the dad's at the party thought I had brought a real ball. His wife then mentioned that he isn't easily impressed. It made my night!
