Baseball Glove Cake

Yesterday my little boy had a birthday.  He loves sports, so most of his cakes are sports related.  I've made a soccer ball cake, a basketball cake, a football cake, a team "Storm" cake in the past.  Since t-ball season just started my little guy wanted a baseball cake.  He wanted chocolate cake, so I thought I'd make a baseball glove cake so we could have chocolate frosting on it. 
I saw two ideas that I used.  I made the baseball glove part from and the baseball cupcake idea from Kraft.  He loved it! 

It's not perfect (non of my cakes are since I am NOT a perfectionist), but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out and it tasted pretty good too.  

I made one 9" round cake and then 6 cupcakes.  I trimmed the glove a little bit like it showed on  I couldn't decide what frosting recipe to make, so I used by butter frosting recipe from my trusty Better Homes and Gardens cookbook.  I set aside a little bit of it while the frosting was still white (for the cupcakes) and then added cocoa to frost the glove. 


  1. Jen, you're amazing. My kids are lucky to get cupcakes.

  2. What an adorable idea for a little boy!!
