Cakes are a carved baseball bat and a ball pan baseball cake. Cakes are lemon with lemon curd filling, lemon BC icing. Scoreboard is royal icing. ...... Sorry for the poor quality pic. It is another I found while rooting through old snapshots (pre- digital camera & computer). Sorry too for reflection from flash on foil. Not a good shot of bat either, it wasn't quite that chunky looking like that. Should have taken a side shot.
