Here is my last cake. Click here to see #1 and #2. This was a last minute cake that I decided to make the night before.
This was by far the most simple cake out of the three. I love how it turned out!
I used the ball cake pan again to make half a ball. I got store bought frosting (I normally don’t). I have seen this technique done before but was a little worried how it was going to work on a rounded surface. (Note: I always freeze my cakes before frosting).
Warm your frosting up in the microwave. I did 30 second increments till it was runny but not hot. Then I started to pour moving in circular motions. You will use the whole can of frosting. I did two coats. After 15 minutes I scooped up the leftovers on the mat and microwaved it and poured again. I was so impressed with how well this worked.
For the cupcakes I used the same microwaved frosting to dip the cupcakes in. This worked really well to give a smooth surface to put the red laces on. I had some leftover green frosting from my previous cakes that I used to put “grass” around the big ball. I love how this one turned out.
