Any ideas for this cake?

post #1 of 8

I have a request for a sheet cake with a basketball theme. Only catch is that she wants half decorated for a boy and the other side for a girl. Any suggestions on a design that will work.

what about using neon colors of pink & blue

 

because a lighter color would look baby-ish don't you think?

 

the stitches on a baseball could be each color

 

the bases could be both colors--or better yet--white bases as usual

 

on the brown 'pathway' between bases run a pink and a blue line instead of a white one

 

you could make one blue and one pink bat

 

you could pipe or make mitts in each color

 

(i would like it more uni*** rather than each being represented myself--but it ain't my cake ;)

 

but those are some thoughts

if you had your own tv show what would be your favorite commercial/sponsor

i think i'd like ghirardelli and hershey for starters...

basket ball is worse

 

ok the lines on the floor--make one side pink and the other side blue

 

pipe a pink & blue net on the hoop

 

maybe harder but

 

draw two jerseys one with a waist and one straight down the sides pink & blue

Something like this maybe but stars half pink and other half blue, and maybe the ball normal colour.

 

 

 

How old are the kids the cake is for?

 

Or maybe a basketball court / half a court and get a girl basketball player and a boy basketball player figure to put on top.

 

Amazon have a full girls set including goals -

Great ideas, the kids are around 7-10 yrs. old I think.

What about something along these lines?  Forgive my pathetic little paint drawing, and made up names LOL!  You could add a woodgrain/wood plank type texturing or coloring to the main part of the floor.  The |-o things at each end are supposed to be the baskets.  And, somehow my center basketball looks more like a tennis ball...but you get the idea anyway! :)
