icon_mad.gif grrr and icon_cry.gif wah! at the same time. I want to do fondant, not stars. The pan is indented with lines as guides for stars, but doesn't include the pent & hex pattern for fondant.

I guess I was a dunderhead to assume Wilton would be gracious and helpful enough to supply these. It *does* supply the pattern with the fully Round Sport Ball Set, but that pattern doesn't fit tthe 1/2 ball pan ?!?!

Someone save me? I did a search and found zippo. I know I'll just end up measuring each shape and making my own, but darn-it-all...I was hoping someone else already did the work!! lol

maybe you can take the cake and make the lines a bit more indented, then when you put the fondant on, it will sink in a little more in those areas, and you'll have a guide...it'll also emphasize or and define your hexagons more in the long run.

Did you look in the Wilton's website? the other day I noticed they have a section of patterns you can download.
Good luck!

Can you lay paper over the pan and trace?

Here is the link to it on Wilton's site:
http://www.wilton.com/shapedpan/Soccer-Ball-Pan

They have all of their pans listed.

How about laying fondant over the pan and pressing it to get the pattern?

Whenever I buy a Wilton pan I toss the insert out and do my own thing icon_biggrin.gif because I can't stand looking at all of those stars.

I think I would just measure the lines on the pan and then use them to draw a pattern...or enlarge the one from the round ball pan and see if you can get it the right size that way, if you're not big on drawing.

Thanks ladies - no luck so far, though. I had searched through Wilton before posting - the only pattern is the round ball 3D, but enlarging correctly was a total crap shoot - off in one area or another -- you know fondant -- seams need to be perfect. Spheres are just a pain in the @$$.

As I posted, "I know I'll just end up measuring each shape and making my own, but darn-it-all...I was hoping someone else already did the work!! lol" adding at least 40ish minutes to the whole process icon_sad.gif
