Basketball Bar Mitzvah Cake (2021)
Even though it’s likely that this year’s pro basketball season will be cancelled entirely, there is still some hope that the owners and players will come to an agreement. Jesse likely agrees, as he asked us to create this basketball themed Bat Mitzvah cake using the color scheme from his favorite NY b-ball team.
The top of the cake is decorated in white fondant with criss cross patterns to simulate a basketball net for the large orange basketball that sits above it. The middle tier is covered in orange fondant with a black fondant stripe. The client provided us with the party’s logo which is monogrammed with Jesse’s name. The bottom tier of the cake includes alternating stripes of varying length in black, white, gray and orange.
Flavors and fillings included red velvet with vanilla buttercream, chocolate with oreos and cream buttercream, and vanilla with vanilla and chocolate buttercream. We delivered the cake to Pure (Formerly Abyss) in South Amboy, NJ.
Here’s a video I shot at the bakery:
We had the opportunity to work with Extraordinary Productions Event Planners to collaborate on this cake.
