I have been asked to make this cake....

It's hard to tell the size, but this doesn't look like the sports ball pan on top, it looks much bigger!

Any ideas would be appreciated!!

Thank You!!

Based on the size of the pattern in the counter top...

yea, that could be the sports ball pan.

and if not..

two soccer ball pans + 1 matching round tier in middle between to fill out to full round (soccer ball pan not a full half round) would give a much bigger cake.

of course, could do like Geoff on AOC did for tennis ball cake and just stack a bunch of layers and then carve it to round shape.

That cake is approximately six inches in diameter. The candle is a standard birthday candle with red gel piped in to it. See the dots through the gel? The cake is 2 1/3 times the size of the candle. Those candles are 2 1/2 inches tall ~ the cake is about 6 inches tall.

edit to say - it is the sports ball pan.

Looking at the candle size, I'd say it was the sports ball pan ...

that is a #1 candle, ain't it?

Thank you very much everyone! It was hard to tell the size, I think the way it was taken made me think the ball was much bigger!

Thank you so much for all the quick replies, this really helps!!

Love it here!!!

As usual, great detective work! detectives! detective.gifdetective.gifdetective.gif

I just wanted to comment on how cool that candle idea is... will definitely put that in my "data bank" to save for a future cake.

I thought the candle was neat too. Will also be including it in the future!
