How to Prepare Cake Layers for a Soccer Ball Cake

Learn how to make a soccer ball cake for a kids' birthday party from Essential Cakes' Etwin Gordon in this Howcast video, part 1 of a 7-part series.


"hi, today we will be making a soccer ball cake. And for this I'm going to use two 8-inch cakes. You can use anything about that size.

We're going to take our first layer, I've turned it bottom side up, so we'll have a nice straight even board so we don't have to cut it. And we're just going to add some icing and we're going to use that to add our second layer of cake. And we'll add our second layer. For this we won't need to cut off the top, because we're going to use that to round out our soccer ball. And for this you can actually make just any kind of- you can make a baseball, you can make a basketball, using this same shape. And we'll ice the sides. Just give it enough icing just to hold it, because we're going to come back and we're going to carve it out, into a round shape for our soccer ball. I will just wipe off the extra icing. And we'll set this in the fridge for about 45minutes, to let it chill. And we'll come back and decorate our soccer ball. "
