With Father’s Day coming up next weekend we thought the timing was just right to showcase some of the most fabulous sports cakes from talented cake artists the world over for all those sports-mad dads.
One of our all-time favourite sports cakes is Cuteology Cakes‘ outstanding baseball cake (above left) with exquisite vintage style detailing and shading.
And inspired by this design is our second feature cake above, a one-tier baseball cake again with coloring and shading adding wonderful authenticity by All The Kings Horses Cake Creations (image by Out of the Box Photography).
A master of blending perfection and simplicity, Erica O’Brien has designed this baseball inspired tiered cake design (below left), while on the right, incredible detailing and an angled top tier create a baseball fan’s dream cake by Sweet Lisa’s Exquisite Cakes, below right.
A selection of sports ball cupcakes makes a novelty party treat by Mandy’s Sugarcraft below. Mandy share her tutorial for these sporty cupcakes on her Facebook page here: baseball, tennis ball and cricket ball cupcake tutorials.
On the right below, a topsy turvy cake piled high with all sorts of sporting equipment and memorabilia makes an inspired tiered design for the die-hard sports fan by Lovely Cakes.
A basketball, hoop, net and backboard makes an outstanding top tier on this brilliant basketball cake by Mira Que Tarta (below left), while Edible Essence Cake Art captures the magic on the slam dunk in their basketball cake, right.
Carving a full-size basketball from cake is no mean feat but one that has been achieved to perfection by Liz Shim of Eat Cake Be Merry below left, while Val’s Custom Cakes prove their sporting cake prowess with a basketball hoop cake on the right.
A cake colour scheme coordinated with a team logo cut-out and bold lettering makes a striking sports cake tribute below from Peggy Does Cake.
When it comes to stand-out sports cake designs, then Lovely Cakes cannot be beaten with their wow stadium cake and its incredible detail, below.
Airbrushed colour adds terrific dimension and realism to this brilliant boxing gloves cake below by the Sweet and Saucy Shop.
While there are lots of super impressive running shoe cakes out there, the detailing on this sneaker cake by Cake Nouveau is second to none.
