Boulder Panthers Purple Basketball Cake

So the Team went to State this year, and I was asked to make them something special for their banquet tonight! Boulder panther colors are purple and gold, so this cake had a purple-golden cake swirl inside as a surprise. This deceptively simple-looking cake was a MAJOR effort to keep clean-looking - I never use molds, so that perfect round is hand-carved - on top of a sloping/round base made from decreasing circles of cardboard - see the extra pics above where you can see the demolished cake sitting on the base. Another art design challenge conquered - a lot of math in this one! All my Cake, Swiss Buttercream Icing, Fillings and Fondant is made from scratch, in-house, to-order, and is very tasty as well as beautiful. Cake like this is more like performance art; guests take photos, enjoy it all through your event, and then you cut it in a grand finale they talk about for days! Let's make YOUR dream cake :-) No idea too extreme! Custom orders a specialty. Shipping NOT available on cake - pickup or delivery ONLY. I am located in Boulder, Colorado, and will deliver on a custom basis. I require a 2 week minimum before delivery in order to insure all gumpaste parts have hardened sufficiently. Not all calendar days available, please check with me to see if your date is available, and order early to ensure getting your desired date. Please contact with questions or requirements not addressed!
