I got the idea for the baseball from elegantcheesecakes.com. My brothers birthday is this friday (October, Friday the 13th!) and he played sports his whole life. The football and baseball are made out of rice crispy treats (if you ever watch ace of cakes, they use them alot) Then covered in fondant. The red stitching on the cake was OH MY GOD!!! it took sooooo long and was sooooo ahhhhhhh! then i rubbed a little brown coloring on it to made it look worn. I have yet to autograph it.
