carve a tall cake (maybe a double barrel), then form the fondant from the bottom instead of the top, gathering it up truly like a bag. Tie with a ribbon or a strip of plasit wrap until it sets.

I did these like two stacked tiers, then carved it down to the teardrop-type shape. Cover it with the fondant and gather it like @Brookebakescake  said. The rope on it was made with fondant and the texture was a burlap texture mat pressed all over the surface.

I don't think you need a ball pan.  As CC mentioned, it's more of a teardrop than a rounded or ball top.  But whatever works best for you would work too! Post some pics when you're done, we'd love to see it!
