I made some softball toppers last year out of fondant. I am looking for an easy way but more realistic look time. I opted to make cupcakes for my daughter's softball team. Last year I attempted to use Wilton decorator gel but the taste was gross not mention I kept getting tails on the stitching. I ended up using an edible marker which looked fine but wanted a better representation. Any ideas or tips?
Try royal icing
ANot sure how you did it with fondant before, but I have as we'll and was pretty quick in my opinion. I just cut out 2" circle in rolled out white fondant and used a red food pen to draw the lines and stitching then set it on top of the frosting. My hands aren't steady enough for royal icing haha.

I used crusting buttercream kind of thin. Did the line, then came back with the stitches.
I just made baseball ones I used wilton red and mixed with a little of vodka (I mean little : ) ) The vodka dries quickly. It's like using a pen only with a paint brush : )
AThis is probably too late, but I just saw this on Facebook from Everyday Cake Ocasions (not spelled correctly). I never thought about using a star tip and alternating the direction to look like stitches
