What's the best way to carve a bowling ball cake and covering it in fondant? I know that Wilton has a ball baking pan but I don't want to spend money bying the mold. I was thinking on carving the cake and covering it in fondant. Any advise?

Thank you.

I honestly cant think if a away to carve a good round shape from a non domed cake pan. I made a 1/2 bowling ball and used the Betty Crocker bake and fill set that I have. One of the pans is a dome but I know you stated you did not want to buy anything. Sorry I couldn't be of more help icon_redface.gif

Honestly I would buy the wilton ball pan or buy oven safe round bowls to bake it in!

Can u rent a pan at any stores near you? We can rent them for $2.99 at the Bulk Barn in Ontario.

I did one in rice krispies and covered it in fondant and set it on a "lane" sheet cake. In my photos if you want.

thank you guys. Unfortunately I can't rent any mold here. I've seen some bowling ball cakes in the sport gallery and saw some nice carved bowling ball cake. I'll look for some bowl that I could bake the cake to make my life easier.
