Ryan was a big helper mixing up his cake!
Chocolate from The Cake Mix Doctor in a 9x13 pan. Then, I cut it in a rounded diamond shape for the field and two more rounded shapes to stack for the bleachers. Then I ate the outside corners that were left :).
The cake was frosted with buttercream frosting (Wilton's recipe, except I use half vanilla/half almond flavoring) and I used Lindor white chocolate truffles for the bases.
The "fans in the stands" are mini M&M's and the home run line is a Rips Whips. The scoreboard and Minnesota sign are just printed and stuck in with kabob skewers. The jumbotron screen says "You are Hereby Circled" and Ryan is holding a sign that says "It's My 1st Bert-Day!"
The back of the stadium bears the Twins logo in frosting.
The party-goers seemed to enjoy the cake and we are enjoying what's left of the infield!
My favorite comments of the night were:

After handing him a slice of left field: "Sweet, that's where Delmon Young plays." ~Wade
"What is the difference between Chocolate Cake and Devil's Food? We are so discussing this in the teacher's lounge Monday." ~Abbie
