I have an order for next week for a disco ball cake. Any ideas? I am doing it in a grocery store bakery, so...they won't let me bake the cake in a round bowl like I would if it was my own setup. I was wondering if I could sculpt one from 8" rounds like you do for a barbie cake and put the cakes together to make the round ball. Please help. Any and all suggestions will be appreciated. I even wondered if I could make a huge cake ball - lol. The customer will be happy with whatever I can come up with. They are surprising their mom with a disco party for her 50th birthday and this will be more of the centerpiece cake than anything else. Thanks y'all. Kathy - Georgia

don't know about the ball part - but I am thinking small mosaic tiles cut in time for them to dry and then stuck on all over and painted with lustre or disco dust....

I had to sculpt a round top Rocket (Little Einsteins). I did it by mixing the cake I'd leveled off with icing so that it would stick together. Then I used a bowl to kind of form it. I hope your cake comes out great, I can't wait to see it. The idea of a disco ball just sounds cool!

Can you make the disco ball on a styrofoam dummy and then place it on a Sheet Cake? (maybe that has been made to look like the Disco Floor...with the different colored panels?)

Oh, thought of one thing. Could you mold white chocolate in a bowl to get your round shape? Then you could make tiles out of fondant and lustre dust them like PP said.
