Sports Baby Shower Cake

This cake is for a friend who’s having a baby boy.  Her husband is very into sports, so she wanted this as the theme.  I used the combination of light blue, dark blue, light green and dark green.

The bottom tier is a 3 layer 10 inch strawberry cake with cream cheese filling, the top tier is a 2 layer 8 inch yellow cake.  All of the decorations are made out of chocolate, I used the chocolate molds and with a toothpick, filled in the detailed colored parts.  The bottom silver cake board came in a pack of 2 at AC Moore, and thought it was perfect for square cakes.  Sometimes bases can get pretty expensive, but I wanted something a little better than just the plain white cardboards.  Since the sports ball chocolates were heavier, I decided to star the icing all over, to provide a more sturdy background for holding the chocolates in place.  With the glove on top, I mixed 1/2 chocolate and 1/2 peanut butter melting wafers to give it a lighter look for the glove.
