This cake is for my nephew Chase. When I took his mom's cake to her (Chanel Handbag) I asked him what he was going to do for his birthday. He responded, "umm, I want a basketball cake." So how could I not deliver:) He is turning 4 and he and his Dad are huge Jazz fans. I made this cake with 2 9" round cakes carved to allow the ball to sit inside. I used a ball cake pan for the basketball. The backboard was made from 1/4" plywood. I covered it in fondant. I used my Cricut Cake machine to cut out the Jazz logo. This cake was surprisingly easy and so fun to make. I can't wait for the little guy to see it!
