Tennis Cake

Tennis Cake, originally uploaded by bakers-cakes.

This cake was WON by the customer at UNC's Lineberger Beach Ball event to raise money for cancer research! Baker's Cakes donated a custom made cake to the silent auction. And the winner of the cake is getting married this weekend! She chose this cake for a Groom's Cake. Her husband-to-be is a tennis pro, and of course we used Carolina Blue for the racquet. The cake itself is a Vanilla Buttermilk Cake with our Double Chocolate Cream Cheese Buttercream Frosting, topped with fondant. The racquet handle and tennis ball are shaped from crispy rice cereal treats, to help them hold their shape! Best wishes to the Bride and Groom!


  1. holy cow! how do you keep the lines so straight?
    this is awesome! p

  2. P- The racquet strings are fondant, infinitely easier to keep straight than piping frosting. Although, harder to keep evenly thin!
