I am starting to see cakes on CC with "snowglobes" on them - are they clear plastic and any idea where they can be purchased at? They are just perfect for holiday or anytime cakes I think!

Yes the one I saw on here today said it was a clear plastic bowl. Probably find it at Michael's.

You can do a search for printable Michael's coupons. I never buy a newspaper. I just do a search and print how ever many coupons I want.

saw somewhere on here the other day that they used a plastic "coke" bottle that you find around the holidays, or I also saw a sportastic sports drink the other day at Walmart that was ball shaped. I think you could just cut the top off of that and it would work for a small globe. HTH

I bought some at Michaels last yr. Then I found a place to buy them online. - thisandthat4crafts.com- they are called "acrylic fillable ornament ball", the come in different sizes. I'm pretty sure they ship to Canada.

good luck

I thought that maybe glass would be too heavy???? Not sure about that. I also thought about plastic fish bowls. Too big????

I have 2 different flower bowls. One has a ruffle edge and bit of a base, The other is just a round bowl. The first 278g the second 200g. I am thinking of trying to make a gum ball machine that was recently posted ( not for a few weeks though ) I was thinking of a cardboard base/cake board for it to sit on when I put it on the cake. First to hold in the gum and second to spread out some of the weight.

You can also use a gelatin sphere, made by coating an inflated balloon with gelatin, drying it then removing the balloon carefully. might not be perfectly undistortedly clear like plastic though.

The glass flower bowl worked for me. I had 2 layers of cake, bubble tea straws, fondant covered foam core board then the glass bowl.
I had a little lean to it but that I fixed with a bit of fondant icon_smile.gif
