What's your Take?

Kids at your bowling party will be pinned to their seats when you break out this clever bowling pin and ball birthday cake.

What you'll need

  • 2 baked 13-by-9-by-2-inch cakes
  • 1 dome chocolate cake (baked in a 2 1/2-quart bowl)
  • 2 cups white frosting
  • 2 cups chocolate frosting
  • 3 tea light candles
  • Red Fruit by the Foot
  • Red decorators' icing

How to make it

  1. Arrange one 13-by-9-inch cake on a large platter or cake cardboard. Slice a rectangle off the bottom of the second 13-by-9-inch cake and place it below the first cake as shown.

  2. Trim the cake into a bowling pin, as shown, and spread with white frosting. Add a Fruit by the Foot stripe.

  3. To create the bowling ball cut out a circle from the remaining piece of the second 13 by 9-inch cake. To do this, trace around the bowl that your dome cake was baked in with a knife.

  4. Place the circle on top of the pin cake, spread chocolate frosting on it, and top with the dome cake as shown. Trim around the cake sides to make a smooth ball shape.

  5. For the finger holes, scoop out three circles on the bowling ball and place a tea light candle in each hole.

  6. Cover the bowling ball with chocolate frosting. Print your child's name and age with red decorators' icing. Serves 20-24.
