Go Mavs...

So yes, I am swimming in flour and sugar! This is a cake I made for a birthday boy. They were going to a Mavs game. The cake was Chocolate Fudge with a Cookies and Cream filling. I iced the cake in buttercream and used fondant for the details. The basketball was made out of rice crispys. I textured the fondant on the ball to resemble an actual b-ball and then "painted" it with food coloring to try and re-create leather. And guess what...the Mavericks logo on the ball is piped by me, with butter cream! I used a technique called butter-cream transfer. You basically print out the image in a mirror image and then pipe it backwards and freeze. After about 10 min. the image can be peeled from the wax paper and placed on the cake. Fun!
