Okay this may be really dense of me (and I'm sure I"ll be embarassed after) , but I am not getting how you are supposed to get the volleyball pattern that comes with the ball pan, onto the cake? It comes with that little pattern on a piece of paper. Do I imprint it with a gumpaste tool or am I supposed to transfer it onto other material/paper then imprint it onto the cake?The instructions really don't explain. I plan to use MMF.

Oh and do I really have to dowel and use a cake board for such a small ball??

TIA

If you are using the full ball you will definitely want to dowel the ball. I would recommend using the cake board also. I cut my pattern into pieces and traced them on my fondant and pieced them onto the cake because I made a multi colored ball. If you are making an all white ball you can lay the pattern on the ball and use your tool to trace on the lines for your markings, remove the pattern and then go over them again for more definition.

If this cake is for your own family or one of your kid's VB teams, you have to make a lame joke about "serving" the cake -- it gets a good eyeroll every time!! icon_wink.gif

Too cute - hadn't even thought of that... I'll have to tell my colleague - it's for her daughter.
