and cake! this one is from a few weeks ago, and it's a redo. but i like to share those too. when i create a ball cake (golf, basketball, bowling), i bake the two halves of the ball in an aluminum bowl to get the shape. there are cake pans made specifically for balls now, but this has worked for me for years, and it's a little bigger than the ball mold i've seen, so i keep using it. the bottom half is yellow cake, the top, chocolate, just for the birthday boy. with two flavors, there's a little something for everyone. score!
