A Basketball Cake

Today I’m sharing this fun but oh-so-simple basketball cake with you!  The idea came from this cake and I couldn’t wait to make it.  Luke and Lila’s basketball season ended this weekend and yesterday we hosted the team party at our house.  Twenty-five people were here for pizza and cake … hosting a gathering like that is something I really love!

To make this basketball cake, I baked a two-layer cake from a mix and frosted it with orange-tinted icing.

The simple basketball pattern was easy to replicate and the Reese’s Pieces party pack had more than enough candies to cover the cake.  In order to feed the whole crowd, I served a batch of cupcakes as well.

I love nothing more than a simple cake that has a huge cute factor … this one definitely fits that description!

    I love the simplicity of this cake, yet it is so creative. This is a great cake to show that a little bit of effort goes a long way! I bet it tasted pretty good too :-)
