Go Cubs!!!

My husband is from Chicago and is a big Cubs fan.  So for his birthday we had a Chicago party including deep dish pizza and Chicago style hot dogs. 

For his cake I made a chocolate 8" square and half a medium size ball pan.  The base ball plate was easy to decorate, just shaping the square a little bit before covering it with fondant.  After covering the half round ball cake, I used several tools to make the stitching on the hat.  A covered piece of cardboard gave the rim of the hat a nice arch.  The last touch was crushed gram crackers around the plate.
