There are two ways I do it. If I can get away with covering a seam, like putting stripes on the ball, or whatever, I'll cover one half, trim the excess, then flip it over and cover the other half. Then trim the excess and cover the seam with a "stripe!" It works sometimes!!

If I can't cover a seam, then I'll just roll out the fondant a bit thick, like 1/4 inch, that way when I'm rounding and smoothing the bottom, it won't wrinkle. Once you get to the bottom, trim the excess, flip the ball over and smooth out the "ridge" that forms under the ball.

In my pics, one example of a ball with a covered seam is my 3D Elmo cake. An example of the smooth ball is the 3D Wow Wow Wubbzy Kickity Kick Ball!
