Sports Cakes

sport ball cakes
For a sports theme party we made one cake mix and divided into two round cake pans. After baking we left the round top on the cake and didn't level it off.

One was frosted with white and added red frosting for the laces using a round tip.

One cake was frosted orange, we used cookie frosting that comes in Wilton tubes because we had it on hand. We added Reese's pieces for the brown lines but you could also use M&M's. The type of frosting dried smooth.

Easy and they were a hit with the sports fans at the party.

It is easy to whip up some sports cupcakes like these too. They use very little cake decorating with just create lines in designs.
