For my friends wedding we wanted to make her hubby-to-be a golf cake as a surprise. We were planning on using crusted butter cream since we are both pretty new to cake decorating. There are a ton of really great examples on CC, but does anyone have a suggestion on:
1. How to make the indents in the golf ball nice and symmetrical?
2. Instead of buying the Wilton ball pan, is there any way to bake in a round pyrex bowl to get the same effect?

To your second question, Yes. I have made a baseball using a round pyrex bowl. Works great, and you get a filling in the cake too!

When I made my golf ball cake I used a wooden dowel and just rounded off the end with sand paper. Then you poke it all around the cake. If you have a fondant ball tool you could use that as well. It's a little time consuming no matter how you do it because you have to make every indent individually, unless someone knows an easier way icon_biggrin.gif

I did it! Thank you two again for your help! While the pyrex trick did not work with my pund cake recipe, I just ended up hand carving a ball. The dowel trick worked great when I dipped it in corn starch!
