What kid doesn’t want a baseball birthday cake at some point in their life? Well, there may be some, but for those who do, this cake is awesome!
Picking the design for a birthday cake is actually more challenging than doing the cake itself…most of the time. I will admit, my cakes are not perfect, but I am not trying for perfection. That gets frustrating and takes the fun away from it all. Plus, I am trying to teach my kids mistakes are acceptable and we can always manage to get a good laugh out of them. Like the time I misspelled “birthday” with “birtday”. So guess what? We sang happy “birt-day” and had fun with it. My kids still remember it!
Anyways, my friends little guy, Cameron, turned one back in January and he had a baseball themed party! It was so cute and my friend, Kelly, had the themed nailed down. Hot Dogs, popcorn, nachos at the “concession”, all the good eats for a ball game. What’s more important then the actual food? The cake of course! What’s a party without the cake?!?

So, I have to be honest. I don’t make my cakes from scratch, at least not for birthday cakes. It already takes so much time to decorate, so using a box cuts the time, and you know, no one knows the difference. Everyone always says how great the cake tastes, so thank you Betty Crocker – you rock! I don’t always make the buttercream from scratch either. It just depends. I did include my recipe below if you are inclined to make it from scratch – it is delicious!!
