I was asked to do a birthday cake for a teenage boy who loves North Carolina Basketball, so this is what I came up with. It's pretty simple and to the point.
It's a white sheet cake and the ball is chocolate cake- all covered in delicious buttercream frosting.
AND, this is the first fondant-free cake I've decorated in a while and I'm pretty proud of the way it turned out!
I also think the way I made the hand grip stuff on the ball turned out awesome!
P.S. Thanks to my awesome neighbor for letting me borrow her basketball so I could actually know how to make a basketball! :) haha, I'm still extremely pathetic in the sports department!
