Hi, I bought the Sports Ball Pan to make a Christmas M&M cake. Besides the sports ball cakes or pumpkin cakes what other cakes have you used the pan for? Also any tips for baking in the pan are greatly appreciated. Thanks.

You can do anything with a sphere shape -- a snowman cake, various sports balls, you can use half of it for an igloo cake, half of it for a sunshine cake, etc. The possibilities are endless! icon_biggrin.gif

I've used it to make volcanoes, a globe and a baby butt.

I used it to make the coach on top of my Cinderella cake. Also used 1/2 of the ball pan for the base of the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.

I find many uses for the wilton ball pan (and I just bought the fat daddio mini ball pan to make ornaments). I made a bowling ball, a fishbowl, an old-fashioned Wile E Coyote type black bomb with a sparkling top, the bulk of the Panda head cake (i used a small round in between the ball layers to make the head longer), and a girl's head. I use the ball pan so often I feel like many ideas I have wind up using that shape. Why carve a ball shape if you have the pan! I feel the same way about the base for the giant cupcake pan, a good starting point for many cakes.

I just made a small fat cylinder of fondant. I used a toothpick to do the side indentions. I then used the toothpick to make a small indention in the top. I rolled a very small fondant snake for the loop. I made the loop and let it set up a bit. I painted the loop silver with dry luster dust. Then I put a dab of water in the small indention on top and inserted the loop. I painted the rest with silver luster dust and attached with dab of buttercream.

As someone mentioned the teapots are really cute too.
