They look like cake balls, I think they are make out of cake and frosting shaped in to balls. I have seen them on blogs

I had a bride show up with a pic of those last year and then got pissy at me when I quoted her a price. She didn't want to pay more than $3.00 apiece.

She then proceeded to post on the local wedding forum saying I was way over-priced (and rude... because I didn't agree to her price).

I really highly doubt that they are cake balls.

Some people put the cakes on sticks to make cake pops. Try this site:

I think they are cake balls, they were decorated with detail. I went back and read the posts. Notice: 16 March 2009 at 12:41 pm by Toni.

They are beautiful. I think they would be cake not the same as the small cake balls.

She is about 10 minutes from me! I will have to go and visit.

They look more like mini ball pan cakes and they really are beautiful!!!

scionmom Posted 29 Sep 2009 , 11:26am

Those are so beautiful! I hope someone can figure out how to make them, so we can all give them a try!

Caths_Cakes Posted 29 Sep 2009 , 11:46am

i would of said mini ball pan, or some other round ball pan. Who knows, ive seen christmas ornaments done this way, and also by using cupcakes

SHogg Posted 29 Sep 2009 , 11:57am

Beautiful, very unique. The cakes are so perfectly round!

These are beautiful - did you see how much they are? 9 British pounds each for the small (1 serving) which comes out to be about $14.35 in US dollars...the large (3 servings) are 12 British pounds and she wanted them for $3.00 each! Crazy!

they are beautiful, but in the article below say's something about she weaves thin silk and weave's into balls, so everyone has a piece of cake, it might be the ones in the other picture but it sounds like they hold the cake inside.

No, it says the original art, that the cakes are modeled after involves weaving silk. The cakes have nothing to do with weaving or silk.

Charmed Posted 30 Sep 2009 , 3:41am

they are too big to be cake pops. maybe they are made in mini ball pans but how do you cover them in fondant (assuming it is fondant) and get the fondant so smooth?? I hope someone here knows how to do them!!

Madiken Posted 30 Sep 2009 , 5:48am

They're just beautiful! I too would love to know how this is done!

yummymummycakes Posted 30 Sep 2009 , 10:11am

I also wonder if these are made with the wilton ball pan?

As I haven't seen this pan in real life would it be possible to get to of the pan, over fill one and clamp the other on top to make a round ball?

And as much as they are beautiful they are not as complicated as the real art.

Look at the real balls with the ribbon woven

These definately go in my "have to make" list.

How do you thing the icing is done? How do it have that shimmer effect?

__Jamie__ Posted 1 Oct 2009 , 4:00pm

Looks exactly like the shimmer airbrush sprays I use.

DakotaDesigns Posted 1 Oct 2009 , 4:17pm

Being as there are various sizes, I think that the larger of them are a mini ball pan, the smaller more varied sized I would thin it easiest to do 'cake-pop' style. The smoothness looks to be either white choclolate, modeling chocolate or liquid fondant (melted). and I agree with _Jamie_, looks like a shimmer airbrush to get the perfect uniform glimmer. I think I'm going to give these a try for the holidays!

brian1974 Posted 1 Oct 2009 , 5:22pm

i was looking at those ornaments in the links and they are wonderful, id like to try them.
Are the tops of the cupcakes covered in fondant or reall smooth buttercream?

CoutureCakeCreations Posted 1 Oct 2009 , 5:42pm

Just took a look and those are awesome!

cakesthatrock Posted 1 Oct 2009 , 9:21pm

You can make these with chocolate, dye the chocolate with oil based color and brush them with pearl dust. You can buy the round plastic balls in craft stores to use for your mold.

mrsmc23 Posted 1 Oct 2009 , 9:37pm

I'm sure this is a really dumb question but what are cake balls and cake pops? TIA, cheryl
