I have the sports ball pan and I want to do a beach ball for my son's bday cake.

I would like to cover it in fondant but all the examples I find have the bajillion star tip thing.

Any tips? Does anyone know of a template for cutting the beach ball stripes? Every google search I do just turns up more star-covered beach balls.

Thanks--I think I found that one on a site for making fabric beach balls. Hopefully I can scale it to fit the Wilton ball pan. There doesn't seem to be a template specific to the ball pan.

I was going to post this also:

it seemed like a lot more work though!

Thanks--that cake is actually the inspiration but I couldn't find her instructions/template. I don't know if I can that much detail but that is the style/mood I'm hoping for.

I think I am going to print the fabric template and test it against the pan and then enlarge/reduce on my copier to get the right size.

Wish me luck.
