I’ve made a lot of girly and whimsical cakes and have secretly always wanted to make a sports themed cake; especially a Philadelphia sports cake! My fiancé is very into sports – almost borderline obsessed -so when I was contacted about making a Phillies themed Birthday cake for a little boy’s party – I knew it had to be the best!
I’ll be honest in saying that I don’t know much about sports. I know the basics: homerun, touchdown, strikeouts, 3 point shots, but that’s about it. So, I had to really think about the design of this cake. I had to make it fun since it was for a little boy, had to be accurate since his mom said he is a huge Phillies fan and overall amazing because I take great pride in my work.
I decided to go with the traditional Phillies colors and decorate the cake with the different team logos, baseballs and stars. I also wanted to be sure I included the birthday boy’s age so when he is older, he will remember how old he was when he had this cake.
Overall, I think it turned out great and when I delivered the cake and met the birthday boy, Christiaan, for the first time, he was so cute and seemed so excited to have a Phillies themed cake. His parents were so nice, too, and I think they really loved the cake and the fact that their son was so happy.
This was a fun cake to make and I’m glad I made something that was totally different from what I normally do since I am always trying to broaden my horizons and portfolio!
