I am planning on making a 3-d foot ball out of rice crispie treats. How would I cover it with fondant? I have done 1/2 footballs, but not sure how to cover the whole thing without too many wrinkles on the bottom 1/2. Thanks so much!!

My first thought was to cut the fondant in sections like a football has and then pipe the lines (where you have cut sections) with royal icing or frosting. I did a football cake and it was so much easier to do in BC.

Yup, cut and paste those hexagons & pentagons! You will probably find that as you get to the bottom, gaps will start to appear. I have just used a fondant scarf in the favourite team colours to hide that icon_wink.gif!

I'm lucky enough to have a hexagon & pentagon cutter set, but you can do it by hand using the templates that come with the Wilton 3D sports pan (adjusting the size if needs be) :

Thank you! I will try to do it in top and bottom sections. I should have mentioned it is American Football. I forgot how international CC is!
