is it the whole3-D ball using the ball pan, or only half a ball? if it's the half, i crumb coat in bc then place in the freezer for 10-15 minutes while i roll out fondant. then, place then cake ontop of a large vegetable can so when the cake is draped in fondant, i can trim it and smooth it. if you're doing the complete 3-D ball, pretty much the same, but a lot of smoothing and make the fondant thicker so it doesn't stretch as much.
