I have a ckae coming up this weekend that will have a soccer ball, baseball, football and basket ball on it. I was thinking of getting the mini ball pan to make these but I was wondering if any of you had suggestions on how to shape the football?
My next question is what color are you using to color a basketball? My orange next comes out that instense so I was wondering if another color was being added to the frosting?
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks for the help,
I tend to add either copper/brown or burgundy to my orange for basketballs. It gives it that leather color.
hi i just made a football cake for my son ,i used an ovel shape pan . the picture is in the birthday gallerie. it would work great with the mini ball pan. its was the smallest pan in the ovel wedding pan set. i hope this helps . stacy[/i]
Do you have the mini or petite egg pan? You could use that for the football. Maybe if not, you can make a cupcake or use the mini ball and just carve it.
For the basketball color, my sports ball pan instructions say to use terra cotta. Or maybe you can mix some brown and orange and that might give you the color you want. I made one awhile back (sorry, no pic) and I think that was what I did.
Good luck and have fun!
I have a pic of a basketball cake on this site - I made with the sports ball pan (it was my first time usuing it so it was just a practice run cake I gave to a buddy).
I just kept adding orange until it looked basketball-ish color. a little red in there too - gets that darker orange color.
Thanks so much for the quick responses. I think I will just try to shape it with the mini ball pan because I don't have the egg pan. I do have a small oval that I got in my course II kit but I think it would be too big in relation to the other ones. Thanks again.
