I'm making a tiered cake for a charity golf tournament and plan to use the Wilton Sports Ball 3D pan on top.

How do you actually cut the sports ball cake and serve it for guests?
I've also read that you need a dense pound cake recipe for it to really hold - anyone have an experience with a good cake recipe for this pan?

Any tips/suggestions would be great. I'm not a professional baker .... so any help would be appreciated.

As far as cutting, when I look at the ball it looks like it could possibley serve 8. I would think that cutting one piece on each side than split in half and cut agin in half to make six. Not sure if that made sence lol.
