Since I posted about it, a lot of people have been asking me about the boxing glove cake. It was pretty easy to do, thanks to my Wilton Ball Cake Pan. We all know how I feel about Wilton, but I needed this ball pan for another project I was working on and so despite my misgivings I went ahead and ordered it. When it came, sadly, it wasn’t at all what I needed for that project but since then I’ve worked with it several times with quite a bit of success.
The ball pan is useful, particularly when making a rounded shape. I used it on the What’s Up Doc cake and the Yo Gabba Gabba Cake. Oh yeah, and I used it on the Boxing Glove Cake! It’s easy to use, easy to clean, and just generally a perfect shape for so many projects. If you can get your hands on one, it’s a good tool in the baking aresenal.
