My son Andrew's birthday is in December, but we usually wait to have his party in the summertime, since we are usually traveling for Christmas on his actual birthday. This year, he requested a baseball party. At first, he wanted a Texas Tech cake, but then after seeing all the cute Texas Rangers party stuff at the party store, he changed his mind. He was responsible for the design of this cake...I just had to execute it. :) I was really happy with how the cake turned out. It was definitely a hit with all the party attendees (no pun intended). The cake itself is covered in buttercream, and the hat and ball are covered in fondant. The hat is cake also (excluding the brim, which is also fondant). The cake is vanilla flavor.

These cakes are for a brother and sister's joint birthday party. I was pretty worried about the lego cake, though I don't really know why. Maybe it was the character on top...I couldn't quite figure out how to make it. As you can see, I got it figured out. :) I was really happy with how these two cakes turned out. I hope they like them! Happy birthday Alexa and Julian!
