I am SO addicted to Pinterest. The ideas that come across my computer screen make me want to cook, bake, craft, and redecorate my house. I love being able to pin other people’s great ideas and try them myself. Some have been real winners and a few have definitely been placed into the sarcastic “nailed it” category. Not everything works out, but I’m very happy that this basketball cake was one of the winners.
I had the perfect occasion to make this cake last week for Claudia’s basketball camp party. I tried to find the original source to give credit where credit is due, but every pin I found just led me to a photo and none took me to it’s source. So whoever you are, thank you! It was a huge hit with the kids and their parents!
