I'm sorry as I am sure this already discussed. But, I can't get the search feature to work. It just brings up everything. I made a bowling ball and need to make a soccer ball in the ball pan not the soccer ball pan. How do you get it to stay it's shape without falling? I assume you have to use a dense recipe. What do you all recommend?
Yes, use a dense recipe (WASC or Hershey's choc or some kind of pound cake) and use dowels. But it's a small cake, so use popsicle sticks or straws for dowels - not regular ones. I tried regular ones and it compromised the structure of the cake (as they were too big) and it caved. Also, use a cardboard circle in the middle. HTH!
