I am betting that someone out there has already found the best "tool" to put the bumpy texture on a fondant basketball... Please share your thoughts... I have one due this weekend, and it's time to get busy!
I haven't done it, but my first thought was using a paper towel to get the texture.
I have used the super cheap paper towels they tend to have that texture.
i just made a basketball cake.. it was iced in buttercream , though.. i also use the cheapest paper towel with that texture..most of the time , i get that texture from the dollar store. i haven,t done one covered in fondant.. but right many in buttercream..i love how the paper towel gives it that effect.. so that, cheap paper towel ,might just work on fondant. hth
I did a basketball cake and used the textured papertowel and it did exactly what I wa looking for!
The super cheap paper towels do very well on b'cream. Not sure how it might do on fondant. Maybe if you rolled over it w/a rolling pin it might be o.k.
Thanks all! I have looked at the last couple of strores, and all the paper towels had a pattern on them like diamonds ore something... Has anybody ever covered it in Fondant and textured? I was thinking maybe a new brush of some kind?
The brush idea might work.
I'm surprised you can't find any super cheap paper towels that have just bumps on them
I saw on Ace of cake last night.....they used something to texture fondant so it would look sort of stone like.....it looked like a thick piece of rubber (maybe 4" sq) that they sort of 1/2 rolled over this large piece of fondant. Sooooooo I think your idea of a brush might work
