This cake was one I really loved working on. It was fun to try out new things and see how it worked out. The cake is all vanilla with vanilla buttercream. The top is half of a baseball, done in chocolate, airbrushed red. The mortar is red fondant (left to dry for over a week to make it nice and hard). The tassel is hand rolled fondant in black and white. That gave me the most trouble. Someone told me to use a garlic press. Boy oh boy did that not work. I suppose I need to invest in a clay gun the next time I do a tassel! The paws I made by creating a template and cutting them out of black fondant. If you have any questions, feel free to comment and ask!
