Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and lightly flour one 7- to 8-inch ovenproof glass bowl; set aside. Prepare cake batter as directed. Pour 4 cups of the batter into the prepared bowl, spreading evenly. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in bowl on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove cake from bowl; cool completely on wire rack.
  2. Tint 1/2 cup of the Creamy White Frosting using black paste food coloring. Tint 1/2 cup of the frosting using red paste food coloring. Set aside.
  3. Place cake, rounded side up, on a serving plate. Frost cake with white frosting. Sprinkle with flaked coconut. Place black and red frostings in separate decorating bags fitted with small to medium round tips. Pipe black frosting onto cake to resemble baseball seams. Pipe red frosting on top of seams to resemble baseball stitching.

From the Test Kitchen

If desired, tint any leftover frosting using green paste food coloring. Place green frosting in a decorating bag fitted with a multiopening tip; pipe to form grass around the base of the cake.

Creamy White Frosting

Directions

  1. In a large mixing bowl beat shortening, vanilla, and almond extract with an electric mixer on medium speed for 30 seconds. Gradually add about half of the powdered sugar, beating well. Beat in 2 tablespoons of the milk. Gradually beat in the remaining powdered sugar and enough of the remaining milk to reach spreading consistency.
