Baseball Wedding Cake

Baseball Wedding??
(YES, and an amazing one at that!!)
What a beautiful wedding she had! They were married on home plate at the, minor league, Colorado Springs Sky Sox Stadium! This photo was taken in the club house where they had their very classy reception! I feel so lucky to get to peek in on wonderful ideas and settings for weddings!
This cake was created by using baseball bats cut to become pillars between the tiers. Cake sizes: 6, 10, and 14. White and Chocolate cake with buttercream and white fondant.
The fondant was designed to look like baseballs. I used edible markers and
"stitched the lines " a three tier baseball cake!
The flowers are gumpaste calla lillies dressed up with silk tiny flowers. I loved making these flowers! I used color dust to shine and give some realness to each flower.
Thanks Crystal for letting me be part of your day! What fun!!
