  1. Hi Tina~ I stumbled across your site when looking for ideas for my son’s baseball cake. I had to laugh when I saw these eyeballs! The cookies balls are one of my favorite things to make during the holidays, they make great teacher gifts! I now look forward to next halloween and attempting these eyeballs…oh how fun! Thanks for sharing your talent with the rest of us novices. You really have an amazing gift! I will be attempting the baseball cake this week for my son’s party on 11/21, thanks for the great ideas! ~Laura

    • Hi Laura, Wow, Thanks so much for the comments! I would love to see your cake when you’re done! On the eyeballs – a little tip. I used black royal icing for the pupils then let that set until hard otherwise it bleeds into the gel. I used Wilton’s Sparkle Gel for the irises. The best ones were when I used one row of the first color right around the pupil, then put two rows of the second color around that, then used a toothpick to draw out the 1st color into the 2nd color. I also used a little bit of food color and vodka mixed and painted a little bit of color on the white before applying the pupil or iris to give it a little more depth. That takes a bit to dry since it’s on chocolate but the effect worked well. Thanks again for the nice words. Hope your son loves his cake!! Tina
