Hey guys,

I need suggestions, help, anything!

I have a 3 tier cake in a few months (large golf ball on top).... trying to plan out the best way to do this. I will also need to trave a couple hours with the cake, so i am worried about stability.

Would you make the ball out of cake or would your recommend styro?

Anyone know how to cover a golf ball cake in fondant? At least i assume this what they did (see below)


Any and all help is GREATLY appreciated!

I do know that wilton makes a large ball pan that you could use for cake and than cover it in fondant, gives directions for many types of athletic balls, but me personall would probably do it in RKT covered in fondant. 1) becasue of the dynamics of what your tring to do and than the other is the trip you have to take. I would also probably only travel with 2 tiers and put the third on there and than top it off with the golf ball at the venue. HTH Happy Baking and posty pictures icon_smile.gif

May be easier to do just a 1/2 a ball on top...I did with the grooms cake I made (its in my pics). That might be easier than covering the entire thing!

Good luck and can't wait to see some pics thumbs_up.gif

Since you have to travel a distance, another suggestion would be to do a 1/2 & 1/2 sphere - - - with the bottom 1/2 styrofoam (for stability/support) and the top 1/2 as sculpted cake. This way they can still cut into the top of the cake.

Thanks guys! Sorry it took so long for me to get back to this... I'm getting closer to doing the cake so now im really planning.

I like your ideas of using styro...has anyone seen a video where they cover a ball shape (cake or styro)?
I can see doing it in halves... but its those pesky seams im worried about!
