Does anyone know how to make those fondant beach ball decorations I see in some beach themed cakes? Can someone pleeeeease tell me? I'm making a beach-themed cake for my daughter's birthday this Saturday and I hit a wall trying to make the beach balls. I'm using MMF. Please help! Thanks so much in advance.
I did one last summer for a pool cake. it wasn't the prettiest, but it worked. I just made a ball of white fondant and then cut out & applied the stripes of the other colors. Rolled the ball to make it smooth.
I know one of my favourite cakes is Sugarshack's beach themed one ...I hope I am correct but I think she used large gumballs and covered them in fondant...
Perhaps she will read this and confirm but that is what my senile mind remembers...
yep Jane! Giant jawbreakers and patch the colored fondant on... see my gellery!
Thanks everyone for your help... will try the suggestions and post pictures of the cake when I finish.
