-1 cup butter, softened
-4 cups confectioners’ sugar
-1 teaspoon vanilla extract
-3 tablespoons milk


1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour one 8 inch round cake pan.

2) In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. In another bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture alternately with the milk, mixing just until combined.

What You Need

A baseball smash cake is a fittingly masculine dessert for a baby boy’s first birthday party. The cake itself is usually a single layer yellow or chocolate cake, iced with vanilla buttercream or chocolate frosting. It is then adorned with green candied grass, brown candy “dirt” and red fondant baseballs. A toy baseball player or figurineoften tops the cake off as the “smash” element.

What You Need
-1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
-1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
-2 large eggs, at room temperature
-1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
-2 cups all-purpose flour
-3/4 teaspoon baking powder
-1/2 teaspoon baking soda
-1 cup well-shaken buttermilk

The Cake

In order to make a baseball smash cake, you will need the following ingredients:
1. 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2. 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3. 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
4. 1/4 teaspoon salt
5. 1/4 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
6. 1/2 cup granulated sugar
7. 2 large egg whites, at room temperature
8. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
9. 1/2 cup well-shaken buttermilk, at room temperature
10. 2 drops red food coloring gel
11. 24 inches of green fondant
12. Edible pearls

For the cake batter, start by sifting together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Next, in a larger bowl cream the butter on high speed until it is light and fluffy – about 3 minutes. Add the sugar gradually and continue mixing until it is all combined and the mixture looks light white and creamy – another 3 minutes or so.

The Frosting

To make the frosting, simply whip some heavy cream with a little bit of sugar until stiff peaks form. Then, fold in a few drops of green food coloring until you get your desired shade. If you want a more intense green color, you can add a little bit more food coloring, but be careful not to add too much or your frosting will be too sweet. Finally, spread the frosting on top of the cake and decorate with green sprinkles.
