This one was for my 3 year old nephew who loves soccer. Between piping the grass with Wilton grass tip and stars all over the ball, whew was my hand crampy! I used the Wilton ball pan mold, and once again, put green sprinkles in for surprise fun when you cut it open. The hardest thing about this was getting the soccer pattern right. I googled cake decorating and soccer pattern & got shapes I could print out. I think placed on the cake & piped the red around the surrounding holes, gradually filling it all in. Contrary to popular belief (mine, anyhow), they are not all the same size - some have 5 sides and some have 6.
Looks cool though!
Here is one for an old neighbor friend's kid. He loves hockey & soccer and these are his team numbers and colors (green/grey/black). She of course said simple and this is what I did, I can't help myself, I get ideas & I like to go with it. The ball, hockey stick & puck are made out of gum paste. He loves it, so I consider it a win.
