Basketball Cake and Cupcake Ideas and Toppers


Basketball Cakes and Cupcakes

If you are hosting a Basketball party or just celebrating your team's big win, you will find a large assortment of Basketball cake and cupcake supplies here.

For your Basketball cakes, there are fun basketball pop tops and a Wilton basketball player cake topper kit. Edible cake images are the latest trend in cake decorating. I have featured a nice selection of basketball and NBA team edible cake toppers on the page. Edible cake toppers are very simple to apply to any home baked or store bought cake and many of them can even be personalized.

There are also many specialty cake pans which would be perfect for your Basketball cake including the Wilton Sports Ball cake pan, a mini ball cake pan, a high top sneaker cake pan and a sports jersey cake pan.

If you are baking Basketball cupcakes, there are cupcake picks, cupcake rings, cupcake baking liners, foam fingers cupcake picks and cupcake decorating kits.

Other information you will find on this page includes basketball cake recipes, basketball cake photos and basketball & NBA party supplies.

Basketball Cake Topper

Basketball Cake Supplies

Wilton Basketball Topper:
This 7 piece basketball cake topper set comes with 1 forward, 2 centers, 3 guards and 1 basketball hoop. It measures 2 1/4" to 4" high.

Basketball Pop Top:
I love Pop Top cake decorations. They are so simple to apply to any cake, yet they look fabulous on the finished cake. The plastic basketball pop top decoration measures 5" across and 1.5" in height.

There are also basketball cupcake rings, molded candles and more available!

Basketball Cake Supplies

Basketball Cake Pans

There are many basketball theme cake pans on the market to help you create an awesome cake for your basketball celebration.

The first is the Wilton 3-D Sports Ball Cake Pan #2105-6506. This ball cake pan can be used to make a basketball cake. You can visit the Wilton website for complete basketball cake instructions.

The next is the Wilton Soccer Ball Cake Pan #2105-2044. You can use this Soccer cake pan to design a wonderful basketball cake.

There is also a Wilton Mini Ball Cake Pan #2105-1760. You can make individual basketball cakes for each of the party guests.

The last is the 1979 Wilton Sneaker Cake Pan #502-1964. This cake pan is a high top sneaker and would be perfect for your basketball party cake.

Basketball Jersey Cake

A Basketball Jersey cake would also be a great idea for your basketball party.

There are two Wilton Jersey Cake Pans #2105-2347 and #2105-9405 which you can use to bake your basketball jersey cake. Since basketball players wear sleeveless jerseys, after the cake is baked and completely cooled, trim the t-shirt sleeves to form a traditional basketball jersey.

Basketball Cupcakes

Do It Yourself Basketball Cupcake Kit:
This 117 piece basketball cupcake kit comes complete with 18 Basketball Edible Hard Sugar Decorations (2 pkgs.) 24 Rainbow Star Edible Hard Sugar Decorations (1 pkg.) and 75 White Paper Cupcake Liners.

Other basketball cupcake decorating supplies include:

  • Basketball Cupcake Rings
  • Foam Finger Cupcake Picks
  • Basketball Cupcake Picks
  • Basketball Cupcake Baking Liners

Another idea for your basketball cupcakes would be to decorate your cupcakes with icing tinted orange. Then finish off your basketball cupcakes using black icing, black fondant or black licorice to form the lines of the ball.

The basketball cake with the net behind is pretty creative. Is the actual ball cake or a purchased piece? Regardless, an attractive cake!
