I need to make a basketball cake and was wondering how to make the dimpled pattern that is on a basketball. I see a lot of mats but don't know which one would be best for the basketball impression.
You can buy some screen material and use it to make the pattern. I believe thereis a kind of Tule fabric you can also use.
I've applied dots with a small tip, close together. Then slightly "smoosh" (technical term) them once they have begun to crust. It can be time consuming, but I feel it's the most realistic method. When do you need to make this cake?
Thank you ladies. I'll try both and see what happens. I'm really just tempted in rolling my son's basketball over the fondant--LOL!! Only kidding.
I love that idea!! Your cupcakes look amazing and it's exactly what I was looking for. Thanks!!!
