Here is baseball cake #2. Click here to see cake #1! I decided to make a home plate with a ball this time.
I baked my cake in a 10′ pan. So I had to find the middle.
I marked it with a tooth pick for reference.
Then I found 5″ on each side of the cake and marker them with tooth picks. No this is where that nice metal ruler comes in handy. Make sure you clean it well or keep one for baking. Use your ruler to make light marker with the edge.
Two nice simple cuts with a serated knife.
And you have a home plate! Simple!
Here is what it looked like all done. I decided to use my star tip on the ball to give it some dimension and help it not look flat with the smooth frosting on the bottom!
