Well I was going to suggest using the wilton ball pan and just carving a bit but I don't think that will be large enough.  How about  using a 1/2 of the ball pan on an 8 inch and carving? for both halves? you can make the point with a fondant "cone' and cover it with  the fondant when you cover the cake.

AThanks. Do you mean do a round 8" cake and then 1/2 8" ball pan on top to make a big dome? I assume do this two times to get the two halves. If I made a fondant cone how would I support hat on the cake? Do you think it would be possible to cover the whole cake in one piece?

AYes, my ball pan is 6 inches. I just put the fondant "Cone" on top and cover it with fondant. I don't think I would be able to cover the whole thing with one Piece .

AThanks for your help, really appreciate it. I'm still a little confused on the cone top........are you meaning add it once the cake is finished or to put a cone on the top of cake the cover that 1/2 of cake including cone with new fondant? Sorry, think I am probably overthinking the whole thing!!
