Done it using a pyrex glass bowl. Grease and bake right in it.

You can find "ball" pans at in a number of sizes. I used a half ball to make a lady bug.

I've done a couple using the Wilton ball pan. For the head I just used black fondant and the antennas were black fondant put on wire. My ladybugs were on a smaller scale than I think you're trying to do but I would think you could use modeling chocolate for the head and the wires for antennas. If you have trouble making them stay use melted candy as glue.
