Need a basketball cake idea

post #1 of 46
Thread Starter 
I have a cake order for Friday and my client would like a basketball cake. I have two things in mind. First I thought of making the 3D basketball using the ball pan but I'm not sure if that cake would serve more than 12 people.

Then I thought about a sheet cake with a basketball hitting the backboard and the basketball hoop piped around the ball.

What do you think? Does anyone have any pictures that they could share or instructions for the ideas listed above?

I've seen a sheet cake cut out like a backboard with the basketball on it with the net like you explained. I'll see if I can find a picture of it.

Thanks for listing the websites Mchelle. Do you know of any other sites with pictures of cakes using the ball pan. I would really like to use it. I bought it on ebay over a year ago and never use it.

Check these out. The adduses link gives additional uses for the sportsball pan. I can't seem to find the backboard cake w/ball. I'll look again later.

Hope this helps!

Great Mchelle! That's a different one but along the same lines. I'll still try to find the one I was talking about too.

I love that one! I wonder how that shaped the bottom cake. Do I shave some of the cake off to give the same affect?
