I made this cake last weekend for my future nephew.  The cake part was vanilla, and I filled it with fresh strawberries (picked that morning) and whipped cream.  The green grass was buttercream and was all piped onto the surface.  I carved the soccer ball shape from two 6 inch round cakes, and it is also filled with strawberries.  The soccer ball is covered with marshmallow fondant.  This proved to be slightly challenging because I cut all the shapes out, and had to fit them onto the sphere shaped cake.  The colors were red, green, and white (ran out of black dye), Italian colors. I made the little orange cones out of fondant also.  The flags were a last minute addition, and I made those from tooth picks and construction paper.  Everyone loved the end result, especially the 10 year old birthday boy!

What a fun cake!  I think it looks much more cheery with the soccer ball not having any black in it and having the fresh strawberries in it makes it sounds extra yummy.

Looks great! I like how the soccer ball is its own element within the cake, instead of the whole cake being the ball, if that makes any sense.

That could be easily modified into a baseball, basketball, golf ball, you name it. Very versatile!

Heck, you could even add some legs and make an octopus cake!

Good job!
