Hi All!
OK here is the idea. A birthday cake 10" round decorated reg. like a birthday cake. Then I made a Baseball out of the Wilton pan. and want to place it on the top/and side. like it SPLATTED INTO THE CAKE! OK now my first thought was to cover the ball with fondant. the cake is frosted in BC. then cut a notch out of the ball and fit on the top&side (I don't want the ball in the middle of the cake but off to the side. (does this make sense?) Does any one have any other Ideas how to accomplish? so it would be structurally sound? I would really appreciate any Ideas.. thanks to all you great ones!!

sounds like a good idea....I just wonder how it could be supported?? ARe you going to have a lot of it hanging over?? Or most of it on the cake??? I know exactlly what you mean about cutting a notch...I would say as long as you cut the notch deep into the baseball...the party on the side should stay attached to the side of the cake with icing pretty well...the only hard part is going to be because that ball cake is in two parts!

could you make the ball out of something that was lighter but still edible? Like RKT or marshmallow. What is is moldable or already sphere like?

Why not make the ball out of rice krispie treat covered in fondant? That way you could insert a dowel into it and then into the cake and it would hold onto the dowel.

I know. I just frosted the ball and am getting ready to put the fondant on the ball I am hoping the fondant will help to keep the ball together.. what do you think and yes I think the majority of the ball should be toward the top of the cake. Because of the weight of the ball.. but I dont think I would need to use any other support do you??
