Bake two 9" round cakes, the flavor of your choice. Freeze the cakes, and then place them one on top of the other, with white frosting between. Frost the whole cake white. Add red piped lines and "stitches" so it looks like a baseball!

I made this cake for a little league baseball team. They had a good season.
This baseball bat cake was carved out of an 11"x15" cake pan. The cake was also colored with neon blue so that the kids would get to see a neat/funky cake color when they cut into it. I iced the cakes with chocolate buttercream icing.
The glove was also from the same as the bat but I used a small round metal bowl to make the baseball. However, this ball was colored neon green.
To make the fingers on the glove, I froze some Twinkies and cut them to size. Then I iced over them with the chocolate buttercream. I stacked the ball on top of the glove and iced the ball with white buttercream icing. I used pull-apart licorice to make the stitching on the ball.
The kids oh'ed & ah'ed over the bright neon colors inside. It was quite a surprise.

For this Texas Rangers baseball cake you will need:
Make Marshmallow Fondant
Melt marshmallows. Once melted, add powdered sugar (do not get too much in to pan - just enough that it is not pure liquid. Roll out mat and your hands in Crisco, pour marshmallows (still warm almost hot) onto mat and add powdered sugar. Knead in powdered sugar until you have a soft dough (softer than play-dough but not much). Once you have kneaded in powdered sugar, you will want to wrap in saran wrap and then place in zip lock bag with all air squeezed out so it will not dry out.
Make 6" cake. I did it in a loaf pan so it would be thicker. I did not need layers. I cut off the ends to make it more square and used those as an extra, small cake for the party. I colored some buttercream brown and covered the base.
I cut a small cardboard round and cut out center so the round cake could set on it and dowel could go all the way thru both cakes. I then placed half of ball on dowel rod and put a filling of buttercream (white) in the center, and added other half on top. I then put a crumb coat of white icing on.
Get out rolling mat and pat down with corn starch, and also pat down the rolling pin. Roll out flipping from time to time and reapplying more corn starch so it does not stick. Then once you get to a thin layer you will [carefully] place on cake. I had my mom to help so I would not get chocolate on the underside to show thru. I rubbed smooth and cut off excess and then tucked under.
I made some yellow fondant (added yellow food coloring), then rolled out a cord about 1/2" thick that went around the base of the ball. I also rolled out a flat piece that I cut into a rectangle and attached to the brown base where I wrote Happy Birthday Jordan.
I printed out a picture and free handed the Texas Rangers symbol on. I used red icing and the blue with a little back added in to make it the darker color.
My cousin loved the cake so I think it turned out well!
