I had one in my hand today, but put it back on the shelf because it just seems WAY too big for other projects. Is there a smaller ball shaped pan out there, about half the size? Needing to do a ladybug cake and it seemed like it was just too much.

There's also the mini ball pan that can be put together to make a 3-d ball about the size of a tennis ball give or take. I use them both a lot, but the regular one is a lot bigger!

I use stainless and Pyrex bowls to make half-spheres of whatever size I want.

Which ball pan are you talking about? I have the sports ball pan set and it is only 6", I've made quite a few ladybug cakes with that, and they aren't huge. The mini ball pan would be closer to the size of a cupcake, if that is what you are looking for.

It slides out to make it easier to get the finished product out. It has a catch on the bottom so it doesn't come apart while you're using it.

They're beautiful pans. I looked for them for about a year, with no luck, then I found them at globalsugarart.

They don't have them all, but they had the one that you have dividers. I got that one to make cakes of any square size.

A friend of mine wrote to the two companies so that I could get the spheres through globalsugarart. I've put two on hold.

If you're in the UK, you can get them easily. Not a lot of people have experience with them in the US. I love them all, they're very well made.

I think the eyecatcher is just another pan to get your cake out easily through one side.

This is exactly what I needed to know. I have several of those that will make good use and save me from buying yet more pans! Thank you so much! Everyone!
