Making a cake in shape of a football. Any tips on how to achieve the texture for the football?
'Decorate the cake' has a texture impression mat just for footballs.
Just take a textured paper towel and press down if you are using buttercream. Works like a charm! Not sure will work on fondant or not. I haven't tried it. Wait till the buttercream is no longer tacky or coming off on your fingers. I don't let it get to the crusting stage, though. Good luck!
I have seen where they use the plastic bag that oranges come in to make impression on fondant.
exactly what cutiger had to say!
I am using fondant so I will check out those orange bags. I never use crusting buttercreams so unfortunately that wouldn't work. Thank you!
