I have been asked to make large cake balls for wedding favours. The bride sent the attached picture. I have made cake balls on stick covered with candy melts but not quite sure about this. It looks like the mini sports ball pan is used but is it covered with poured fondant? If so any tips on how to do it and get the whole ball smooth? Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

Here is the photo so people do not have to follow the link if they cannot.


IMO it looks like a ball cake covered in fondant and then decorated with either fondant lines or royal icing lines.

But I would assume if they want it covered in chocolate like a regular cake ball then you could set the ball on top of a cooling rack and pour the colored chocolate over it until you get the thickness you need.

I believe that Peggy Porshen from England has those in her books and on her site. She is one of my favorite decorators. You might try google to find her.

Good luck!
