I am doing a Golf themed cake for a co-workers birthday. I have it iced and the icing is too soft so I can't make the indentions. I am leaving it sit over night and will see if it has "set" overnight.

My kitchen was hot due to baking earlier in the evening...........

How do I go about making the indentions on the ball????

This cake looks horrid. I hadn't done any decorating in over 2 years.......boy am I rusty!!! thumbsdown.gif

There still is no picture of the cake, but the only thing I can think of to get the indentations on the ball would to be cover it in fondant let it set up a little than take a rounded too and put the indents in it, I don't know? Would have to see a pic. first before I can help. Not that I am all that seasoned at decorating.

From your post, I'm assuming you are using buttercream. I've done this many times. Just let the buttercream set up in the fridge. Then, take a dowel and press down to create the indentations!

I used fondant and a ball tool to make the golf ball in my photos.

I let it sit on the counter overnight and has a nice crust on it this morning........

I made the indentions with the rounded tip of the silicone tip covers I had bought the other day and worked pretty good............

Let me see if it will let me post the pic now.
