    Yesterday we celebrated the 7th birthday of one of the coolest kids I know. When he grows up he wants to be a professional basketball player so naturally he would want a basketball cake for his birthday.

    I love using M&Ms to decorate cakes and the last M&M cake we made was the Angry Birds cake we made for my husband’s birthday last year.  I have said, many, many times before  that I am not a skilled cake decorator.  I will never be featured on Cupcake wars or any food wars for that matter, but I feel the only critic I need to impress is the birthday boy himself and being only 7, this cake didn’t disappoint. (Just pretend it turned out as a perfect circle okay?  Thanks!)

    M&M Basketball Cake

    Supplies needed:

    Wilton Soccer Ball Pan

    Orange M&Ms bought in bulk

    Black M&Ms bought in bulk

    Step 1- Bake two cakes using the soccer ball pan.  This took awhile since I had to wait for one to cool enough to get out of the pan before putting the other in the oven.  One tip I found is that it takes a lot longer than it says on the pan to cook completely.  Just watch your cakes until you can insert a toothpick that comes out clean.

    Step 2- Let cakes cool completely and then cut off bottom so they are flat.

    Step 3- Frost one half of the basketball with orange frosting and add the M&Ms in the pattern of a basketball before the frosting dries so they will stick.

    Step 4- Let the decorated side sit for a bit until the frosting is set up and dried.

    Step 5- Invert decorated cake onto a cake plate.  This was the hardest part!!  I had to be really careful not to  knock off the M&Ms.

    Step 6- Add a thin layer of frosting and add second cake on top.  Decorate as you did the first.

    And Voila!  One cool cake and one happy birthday boy.

    This cake is actually rather easy to pull off but the ingredients are very costly. They call this the “Death by Chocolate: M&M and Kit Kat Cake!”.  Hahaha:D. P.S. The scorching heat totally melted the m&ms. It’s totally summer here in the Philippines!
