I am have tried before to cover a ball shaped cake with fondant and it always comes out with creases and bumps near the bottom. I am hoping to make a Cinderella's/Fairy Tale Carriage cake that i found in a Debbie Brown book. It is for family but i still want it to look nice. Any tips on how to properly cover a ball shape like that with fondant? Any help would be appreciated.
well mine worked fine.. just make sure u have enough extra fondant cause the smaller the peice you roll the more difficult it is to get rid of the creases..
honestly maybe cause the ball i had was huge it turned out well.. for smaller cakes its more difficult.. try harder u well make it
I saw on a show once where they did half at a time. You will have a seam, but you can work with it to minimize the appearance of it, or cover with decoration. HTH Good luck!

Someone here gave me a great tip for my teapot cake. you roll circle of your fondant. Put your cake on can and then cover it. The seem will be at the bottom , and you will be able to trim the exsess fondant. you can see my cake in my fotos. hope it helps.
I just did a Cinderella cake and the top was using the Wilton ball pan. I rolled a piece of fondant about 16-18" diameter. I placed the cake (on board) on a cookie sheet, I didn't want it to be raised and risk stretching the fondant. I just started smoothing at the top, went all around the top 1/4 of the cake, then around the next quarter and so on. I lifted and smoothed any pleats as I went around. Working with about 1/4 of the height at a time helps to keep it manageable when trying to lift/smooth out any the pleats.
I just added it to my photos, junky pic though, took it t the scholl w/my cell phone.
