Hi everyone

Has anyone else had problems with the Jem Soccer ball and shirt cutters?  I am so frustrated trying to make the soccer ball!  It seems the pieces you cut - white hexagons and black pentagons - are too big to fit around the sphere shapes provided.  Has anyone else had this problem, or can you tell me what I am doing wrong?

Thanks lovlies

Hi Trac, 

I know that this reply is a year late but thought it may help someone out there ! 

 

don't buy the ball cutters as the shape of hexagons and pentagons will vary depending on the size of the ball that you are making. There is a simple formula to calculate the sides of the cut out pieces. I found a link on YouTube called : How to make a football (soccer) cake. Alternatively you can find the You Tube video link here: http://www.pinterest.com/chris5375/round-cake-ideas/

 

I used this link and made a complete sphere cake for this years world cup.
