Additional Information

Step 1

Prepare Icing
We suggest that you tint all icings at one time while cake cools. Refrigerate tinted icings in covered containers until ready to use.

Step 2

Decorate in Order

With a serrated knife, slice a small piece of cake off rounded side of one half so that, when assembled, cake will sit level.

Step 3

Ice smooth or cover this trimmed area with tip 16 white stars. Place this half with trimmed side down on serving plate. Make a dam on top of this half by squeezing out a band of icing about 3/4 in. high around the edge. With spatula, spread icing, jam, pudding or other filling in center.

Step 4

Position top half to form ball. Lightly ice cake in thinned white icing. Mark seam lines with toothpick.

Step 5

Use tip 3 and red icing to pipe outline seams following markings.

Step 6

Use tip 3 and red icing to pipe pull-out dot stitches.

Step 7

Use tip 16 and white icing to cover ball with stars.

Step 8

Baking Instructions
Preheat oven to 350°F or temperature per recipe directions.

Your cake will unmold easily, without sticking, when you prepare the pan properly. Grease the inside of pan using a pastry brush and solid vegetable shortening (do not use butter, margarine or liquid vegetable oil). Spread the shortening so that all indentations are covered. Sprinkle about 2 Tablespoons flour inside pan and shake so that flour covers all greased surfaces.

Turn pan upside down and tap lightly to remove excess flour. If any shiny spots remain, touch up with more shortening and flour to prevent cake from sticking. (You can use vegetable oil pan spray or vegetable oil pan spray with flour, in place of solid shortening and flour or use Wilton Cake Release, for perfect, crumb-free cakes!).

Make one 2-layer cake mix according to package or recipe directions. Pour the cake batter into pan, and if necessary, spread the batter around with a spatula to fill all areas of the pan evenly. Be careful not to touch sides or bottom of pan.

Bake cake on middle rack of 350°F oven for 30-40 minutes or until cake tests done according to recipe directions.

Remove cake from oven and cool on cake rack for 10 minutes. While the cake is still in the pan, carefully slice off the raised center portion of the cake. This allows the cake to sit more level and helps prevent cracking.

To remove cake from pan, place cooling rack against cake and turn both cake rack and pan over. Lift pan off carefully. Cool cake at least one hour. Brush loose crumbs off cake.

To transfer cake to serving board, hold a cake board against cake and turn both cake and rack over. Lift off rack. Hold another board against bottom of cake and turn cake over. Be sure to hold cake, rack and board close together while turning to prevent cake from cracking.

We recommend hand washing pan in hot, soapy water.

Baseball Star Cake is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Another cake where you only need to use a basic star tip to make a great cake. The only detail that my throw you a "curve" is getting the threads in a realistic pattern. Use a tooth pick to draw them on the unfrosted cake.pipe a line over your tracings, frost the white section up to the piping then go back over the threads and add the stitching. It causes it to raise them up and make sure they're on even

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I had a hard time getting this to stay round the first time I tried it and found that it works much better if I froze the two halves before I tried to assemble it. It was a great cake and very easy to decorate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The cake was a white chocolate pineapple pound cake I found the recipe online. Very delicious. I covered the cake with white cream cheese frosting -- crumb coating first them frosting completelly and smoothing finsh with parchment paper. I piped stitching in red. I transferred a pattern (Chicago Cubs MLB emblem) using piping gel . The used a star tip to outline the pattern. My friend loved it!!! I did use the full round size sports ball pan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have used this pan numerous times- Halloween jack-o-latern cake sitting on a cookie base using 13" round base decorated into a spider web. Baseballs, softballs, Victoria's sectret bra, about to use it for a Dora the Expolaer themed cake for a 2 yr old bday in mid December. This is one of the most versatile cake pans I own!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am making this cake and placing on the middle of another larger cake that will be the baseball field. I think it is going to turn out wonderful. Thinking of covering it in fondant instead to get that clean finish.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I will be making this cake for an End of Season tee ball party. I made one to practice and it wasn't to hard and I am a beginner to cake decorating. It did take longer to bake than I thought that it would.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I did this cake for a friends birthday and she's a big NY Yankee fan so I put their logo on the ball and it turned out amazing.
