To Make Mini Golf Ball Shaped Groom’s Wedding Cakes You Will need:
1 of your favorite boxed chocolate cake mixes
1 – 2 Tub of Vanilla icing
Black food coloring
tube icing for piping
Round stainless steel metal mixing bowls, about 4 inches wide
Mix your favorite chocolate cake mix as usual. You need to bake it in the small stainless steel bowls, so you may want to buy a few to save time. You can bake many of these small grooms cakes at the same time (for more for a large wedding) and flip them out exactly the same to make a large number of Mini Golf Ball Shaped Wedding Groom’s Cakes .
You will need to bake longer to cook the middle of these thick little cakes. So, check them with a tooth pick or fork to see if they are finished.
Once the Golf Ball cake has cooled flip it out of the stainless steel bowls turned baking pans onto a large platter, carving board, or whatever you have..
Let the golf ball shaped cakes cool.
You should find these small grooms cakes look like golf ball shapes cut in half.
Now, you really should go ahead and place these simple Mini Golf Ball Shaped Wedding Cakes on a board or serving platter before you decorate it.
You can use any colors that you want to match your wedding, but I think white is best for a traditional golf ball. You may need both tubs (or more) to adequacy cover a large number Mini Golf Ball Shaped Wedding Cakes.
Coat the entire Mini Golf Ball Shaped Wedding Cakes with a thick coat of icing. Use your spatula or butter knife to make the icing really smooth and flat. The more smooth the better. In fact if you like working with fondant icing, that would be the best, but you can use regular canned icing for this. Reserve some icing aside for touch ups later.
Tip: You may find it easier to apply a thin coat of icing to the entire Mini Golf Ball Shaped Wedding Cakes . Then place the wedding cakes in the refrigerator for about an hour.
Once this thin layer has chilled apply another thicker coat of vanilla icing. This first coat is called the crumb coat for obvious reasons. This is a great way that the wedding cake professionals use to get a clean smooth surface of icing on their wedding grooms cakes.
Now for the real fun. You get to decorate your Mini Golf Ball Shaped Wedding Cakes . Apply a second smooth coat of your butter cream or vanilla icing.
To finish now you can use black or gray piping icing to make small half circles all over the golf bal cake to mini those small circular indentations in golf balls. Try having some golf tees printed up with the bride and groom’s name on them. You can lay them sideways on the plate sticking into the golf ball like they are holing it up. Be sure to have the name on the golf tees facing up.
