I need to make a volleyball cake and plan to buy a ball pan. Looking in the gallery of other ball cakes, it looks as though this is a particularly difficult cake to pull off. Does anyone have any tips for getting a good finish? I plan to use fondant and put the cake on perhaps a 9" round tier.
use a dense cake so the bottom wont flatten
Aaaah! Top tip! Like a pound cake? What sort of recipe should I be looking for?
yes a pound cake would be good-WASC might be ok but I haven't tried it with this pan
I did a bowling ball cake and used the chocolate version of wasc cake. That held its shape very well. Getting the fondant smooth at the bottom was a whole other can of worms.
