Even though my moms birthday was on the 7th we had another celebration with the family which means another CAKE!!!!!
Since my mom love the Milwaukee Brewers I thought it would be a great idea to make her a Brewer cake :)
First I baked a red velvet cake in Wilton's sports ball pan which is a 6" sphere. When it was done baking and cooling I sliced each of the halves in to three layers so I could add a cream cheese frosting filling inside of my cake, and then crumb coated my two sphere halves.
Then I took those same pans and lightly sprayed the pan with cooing spray and then melted some white chocolate so I could make a sphere chocolate mold using them.
I made one layer of white chocolate in those pans put it in the fridge to set up....then about 15 minutes later I added another coat of chocolate to give it a thicker shell, and placed the molds back in the fridge to set again. Then about a hour later I took the molds out of the fridge turned them upside down tapped them on the table a few times and the molds just popped out.
When my molds were done I gently placed them on top of my two sphere cakes to give them a rich white chocolate shell (instead of using fondant to cover my cakes)
AND TIME FOR THE DETAILS :D
(About a week before I started this cake I had made a fondant Brewer Logo and the brim of a hat)
I first started on one half of my sphere which was going to be a baseball...since my white chocolate didn't cover my whole cake (the cake was showing at the bottom) because I had sliced it and filled it, I decided to pipe some green grass around the ball and then added the red stitching around the ball.
Then I took my other half of the sphere and made it into a Brewers hat. Once again my chocolate didn't reach the bottom because I had cut it and filled it I decided to add a blue border around the bottom. Then I took the fondant brim that I had made a week ago and the logo and added to that half of cake I also made some stitching in-grooved in the hat and added some blue dots to give the hat a more "hat" look....
AND THIS IS MY FINAL CAKE :)
AND THE BIRTHDAY GIRL, MY MOMMY :)
Happy Birthday Mommy, I love you
