I need to make golf balls for a cake tomorrow and I'm just not sure how to make them look realistic! I have made balls out of candy clay and fondant, but I can't seem to get the dimples right to make them look realistic. They look more like snowballs. icon_sad.gif Any suggestions???

It m ight be too late for this suggestion unless you've got a cake supply store nearby, but I made the golf balls on this cake using a candy mold and I used white chocolate. EASY! I only did a half ball, but you could easily put them together to make a full one.

Wow, that is an awesome cake!!

Was it a Wilton mold do you know? If not I think I should have time to drive 15 minutes to another store and search. Thank you! icon_smile.gif

I made one out of fondant and used a floral pin to make the indentions. There's a picture in my gallery.

Hi. I did what merissa did when I made a golf-themed cake for my brother-in-law's 30th birthday. Hmmm.... What to use for those dimples... Hold on... I'm looking around now... Don't laugh, but how about the back end of a crochet needle? (Just wash it good with soap and water first, though!) I know there are cake decorating tools that would accomplish the same thing, but if you don't have time to go out and buy/order them, this just might work (in a pinch)! Best of luck to you! icon_smile.gif

no, it wasnt wilton. I think I ordered it from country kitchens. they will ship fast, but probably not that fast!

I guess I would just make the indentations with something small and rounded, like the back of a paintbrush or something.
