How to Make an Animated Basketball CakeEasy directions for making an animated basketball cake:
Bake a round cake the size that you need. With an icing filled bag and round tip, size #5, draw the face and lines on the top of the cake.
You will use the star tip, size #18 to do all of the
fill in work and the round tip, size #5 for all of the outline work.
Now fill in the mouth using red icing for the tongue and black icing to fill in the mouth.
Make a medium brown colored icing or orange icing the color of a basketball. Fill in the rest of the cake following the curved lines.
Use a red food color spray (also known as color mist) and spray a small circle at the ends of the mouth.
With black icing do the outline work around the mouth and the lines on the basketball.
