Our friends who ordered the Super Six Cake, the Football Cake and the Daisy Cake ordered a soccer cake for their son's birthday this year. Last year he got the Super 6 cake, so I couldn't pass up the opportunity to do his cake this year!
I modeled this cake similar to my Golf Ball Cake. The base of the cake is deep dark moist chocolate cake filled and iced with creamy semi-sweet ganache. The grass is buttercream.
The ball is white chocolate cake filled and iced with white buttercream icing and covered in fondant. The black pentagons are also fondant and the "stitching" was made with a notched wheel.
